Swimming has always been a huge part of my life and being a coach is the perfect way to continue staying involved in this beautiful sport. I've loved water ever since I can remember. I was a synchronized swimmer for 7 years before starting competitive swimming in high school. Swimming in high school turned into swimming in college at Wright State University. During college I taught swim lessons both at school and during the summers. After graduating I started coaching a YMCA team in Dayton. When I moved back to Cleveland I began coaching for a USA club team, and then eventually took an assistant coaching position for Magnificat High School and Liquid Lifestyles. Its the perfect mix of clients for me and I truly enjoy every lesson and practice! 

When I started working with Coach Marisa, I had been swimming for over a year and but I did not fell like a swimmer. Since i’ve been working with Coach Marisa, I feel like a swimmer. She has fine tuned my technique and is patiently correcting my bad habits. There is still work to be done and I am sticking with Coach Marisa!
