Today, meet Kendra!
How old were you when you started swimming?
Under 12 months I suppose!
When did you become a swim instructor? For Sunsational Swim School?
I became a swim instructor at age 18 and I started working for Sunsational at age 24.
What is your favorite thing about swimming?
Swimming clears the mind and releases endorphins!
What is your favorite part about being a swim instructor?
My favorite part is the joy of seeing students challenge themselves and develop their love of the water.
What is your best memory from being a swim instructor?
My favorite memory from being an instructor is the first time I had a student jump off the diving board and swim to the side all by herself.
What advice would you give to young swimmers just learning to swim? To parents of young swimmers?
Young swimmers need quality time in the water with parents; this will increase the child’s capabilities and comfort in the water exponentially.
What is your favorite place to go swimming? Any specific place?
I love the beach, riding big waves in the Pacific does wonders for my soul. But I’m land-locked in Dallas so any swimming pool will do.
If you were a sea animal, which one would you be? OR what is your favorite sea animal?
Definitely a dolphin; they are my spirit animal.
Any fun facts about yourself or anything else you’d like to share?
My dream job is a dolphin trainer!
