I am a certified lifeguard, and have current CPR/first aid certifications. I am also a former collegiate athlete with five years of coaching experience here in New York City. Prior to that, I have years of lifeguarding and water safety instruction experience on Long Island. I am also a master’s level synchronized swimmer and have competed at open water swimming events as well. Needless to say, I love the water!
I can assist students of any age or level--from learning the basics to assisting competitive athletes reach their goals through personal attention to stroke refinement.
I get a lot of satisfaction from working with clients to help them achieve their personal goals. Whether that is a parent seeing their child be comfortable in the water so they can enjoy swimming for life, or an experienced athlete get feedback to take their competition to the next level, designing a program that fits YOUR goals (and seeing you achieve them!) has been the most enjoyable part of my swimming career.
Nora is a fun and helpful coach! She gives detailed and supportive feedback.
