About this pro

I'm a water safety instructor and have been certified for over 5 years. I've been a lifeguard and a first responder for three years. I am a mother of two wonderful boys and love children of all ages. I believe water safety is a crucial aspect of growing up, especially in this area. I teach children safety skills necessary for survival first and foremost then proceed to swim skills. I offer fast track sessions for children 5 and up to get them swimming independently within 1 month.  I have certifications available upon request. Please contact me 469-560-6396 for further information or to set up lessons.

I enjoy the look on a kid's face when they have conquered their fears! I enjoy the parent's faces full of pride when they see what their kids can accomplish. Swimming is a very necessary skill that can be mastered early on. Most importantly, I want to help put an end to Childhood drowning due to a lack of knowledge and experience.

    Would give negative stars if possible. She took money for 20 lessons. She almost took half the lessons and now does not respond to messages when checking about the next lesson. I have tried messaging her on facebook and carrier messages too. I tried calling her to discuss the time for remaining lessons, but she does not respond to calls. This is her facebook page https://m.facebook.com/100009524106836/ Do mot hire her if you do not want to lose your money! Not trustworthy!
