What do you like to do when you’re not teaching?
Well, i'm quite a Home bird at heart, I love animals too and enjoy looking after my chickens, they are very funny and friendly! I love being outdoors and going on long country walks (especially when I can talk one of my big girls into coming with me) with my husband and our bouncy, optimistic Labrador. Dogs are great aren’t they!
What does Swimming Mean to you?
Swimming is more than just swimming! It’s a feeling of unity and calm. I love the feeling of complete body and mind revitalisation each and every time I get in the water. I want to teach swimming in a more holistic way looking to the future; my aim is to give all my swimmers the tools to not only swim safer in the water but to swim safer for your body and mind too. The ultimate goal has to be fun! So much fun that you want to keep doing it for the rest of your life.
Tell us about a funny moment in your life?
There are so many. I have the humour of an 8 year old so it has to be each and every silly moment in life.
What is your biggest achievement?
My 2 lovely daughters’.
If you were a super hero what would your super power be?
To zap away the anxiety of extreme fear of the water.
