I’m a mum of two, stepmum of 3 and fur mama of two dogs.
As I was growing up my whole family were great lovers of swimming so I learnt to swim at a very young age. Our summers were spent in Cyprus, as my Grandparents lived there. Every moment we could we were splashing around in the pool or sea. One of my favourite memories is of my dad teaching me to swim and I guess since that day I’ve never really stopped . As a family most weekends we were so luck to be able to water ski or have access to a lake or river near by, it became a regular hobby to jump in and make the most of the water. Even now you’ll often find me jumping about in the sea loving every second! My daughter started lessons with Diddy dolphins when she was 3, suddenly my childhood memories came flooding back I felt an instant connection of wanting to support others in the water. During each lesson I watched how much she gained from it and how proud I was to see her progress with a life skill that my dad taught me. It pulled me in the direction of wanting to train to be a swimming teacher myself. Since then I have now achieved my Swimming Teachers award, parent and baby/Todd instructor certificate and the STA Full teachers Rescue award.
Whilst bringing up my family on our beautiful coastline it become so lovely to support other families in the community to learn to love the water. The both between a little one and their parent is such a magical moment in the water. I love seeing the kids I teach progress to feeling super confident and how to use this life skills safely. There’s not many roles that feels so rewarding, than to be apart of another’s swim journey..

I was first introduced to swimming at a very young age in Plymouth. After my first time in the water I became completely obsessed with being in and around the water. A move to Qatar (and eventually in Kuwait) prompted me to join a swimming club as I was finally old enough to do so. The experiences I was lucky enough to have abroad guaranteed a love of swimming for life. Eventually moving to boarding school to further my swimming career, I came back to the UK. Here I continued to race nationally and internationally. Not only swimming in the pool but taking up open water swimming and continuing my love for surfing. I carry my ASA Level 1 and 2 swimming teacher awards and have over 5 years of swim teaching experience, alongside some coaching and lifeguarding experience. My past client have ranged from parent/baby and toddler to adults lessons as well as the full scope of the Swim England pathway. I’ve also been able to teach regular 1:1 sessions where asked or required. Regardless of the swimmer and their ability, learning to swim or improving your swimming should always be fun and enjoyable experience.
