I started swimming many years ago as a kid with Kirby Swim, after moving from there onto swim club when I was about 15. I loved it so much I decided to make it my main sport.
It was only natural that my first job was as a swim instructor at the same place I learnt how to swim, before getting into coaching the first chance I got.
I really enjoy the difference I can make for my swimmers as a good coach.
I have been coaching for several years and have had moments where the learning curve has been steep, but as a swimmer I know the value of a coach who is there for more than the swimmers times but also to mentor and support - this lesson I learnt from my first club coach - Gordon Shaw who made a lasting impact on me.
I am excited to be joining Peel Aquatic and look forward to helping the swimmers achieve goals in a club that is in an exciting time of growth.
Zoe is an awesome person to have mentor and teach me and I can't wait to help Peel Squads develop.
