5 FUN FACTS ABOUT ME
In January of 2019 I became a mom for the first time after giving birth to my daughter Aria.
In High School I ran Cross Country for 3 years, and Track for 1. It was when I was participating in track that I really understood I was more coordinated in the water!
I thoroughly enjoy going to the dentist
I have been married to my husband John for 6 years, and I would be lost without him. He is the creative one in our relationship, and makes life fun!
Coaching runs in the family; my brother is a swim coach out on the West Coast working at San Diego State University.
“As water reflects the face, so one's life reflects the heart.”
- Proverbs 27:19
Hi there! My name is Madeline Bartley and I joined the Liquid Lifestyles team of coaches in June of 2016. I am originally from Forest Grove - a small town near Portland, Oregon - where I started swimming at a very young age. I swam competitively on the local swim team for 6 years before heading off to a small school in Missouri called Cottey College. After I moved back to Oregon, I realized that I loved helping people learn how to swim and feel comfortable in the water, so I decided to pursue coaching on a more professional level. I really enjoyed my time working at the local aquatic center as a swim lesson instructor, assistant Swim Club coach, and assistant High School coach.
When my husband and I decided to move across the country to Cleveland I was excited to be able to continue doing what I love doing most with Liquid Lifestyles. Liquid Lifestyles has such a great vision for teaching even the most novice of swimmers how to swim smarter and more efficiently. I am proud to work with all of the other coaches here who share that vision. Helping people learn how to swim or just improve their swimming and also develop a better relationship to the water is something I love doing; I am so blessed to have this as my job!
My hobbies include: Hiking, cooking, watching movies, taking pictures, swimming (of course), crocheting, painting, singing, and cuddling with my dog.
