Hello there! My name is Nicole. I've been swimming competitively since I was 5 years old and have been teaching for the past 6 years.
I have taught and instructed a wide range of skills and ages from beginner groups of 3-5 y/o, 6-10 y/o, 11-13 y/o to technique and consistency with adult groups. As a teacher, I strive to make every lesson unique and fun for all ages. One of my favorite things about teaching is seeing the confidence build in students as they become more comfortable in the water.

I have had water in my life since I was 3 years old. Swim team, lifeguard jobs during school and college. I maintained my competitive edge as a "Master Swimmer" during my career. I had 3 sons who learned to swim as they learned to walk. I was a summer camp director which included a swim instruction component. I trained lifeguards in instructional swim techniques. I have been teaching YMCA group swim classes for children and adults, starting with infants at 5 months old.
