I am a 29-year-old swim coach from Louisiana looking to make coaching my full time career. I believe in order to do this I need to move out of Louisiana, and I am willing and ready to do that. I started coaching during the summer of 2015 for a small summer team, and that led to me coaching a local high school team for two seasons, and also coaching for the South Louisiana Swim Team year-round. I continued coaching until COVID-19 when the pool that we were practicing at shut down and never opened back up. That's when I started working at Starbucks first as a barista but then I quickly moved up to be a shift supervisor. This past school year I was contacted by Hammond High School to coach their swim team which brought back my love and passion which has led me to pursue a Masters in Kinesiology with a focus in Sports Management through LSU.
I am currently working on my Associate's of Applied Mortuary Science (hince why my resume is filled with information pertaining to the funeral industry). But my experience related to Swim is well in depth. I started on my local summer swim team in The Woodlands, TX when I was 5 and did that every summer until I turned 18. At the age of 10 I also started swimming with the year around with The Woodlands Swim Team (TWST) and competed all over the U.S. in many national level competitions. I was supposed to go to the Olympic Trials but unfortunate family events prevented me from going. When I swam with The Woodlands Waves (Summer league) My events were the 50 Fly, 50 Back, 50 Breast, 50 Free, 100 IM, 200 Free Relay, and 200 Medley relay. My relay team held the league record for many years and I personally held the record for the 50 Back and 50 Breast for a few years. In my time at The Woodlands Swim Team (TWST) I competed in many different events (depending on the meet) my events included a wide range from the 50 and 100 Fly; 50, 100, 200 Back; 50, 100, 200 Breast; 50,100, 200, 400 Free; 200 IM; 200 and 400 Medley relay; and 400 Free Relay. Since aging out and missing the Olympic Trials I have done private lessons to help competitive swimmers perfect their strokes and I have taught private swim lessons over the past 22 years. I am eager to become a Coach because swim has been my lifelong passion and I have a lot to offer young swimmers with their hearts in swim.
