Coach Victoria
First I would like to say I’m so excited to be able to coach this team ! I have always loved the water but took on swim team when I was 10. I really enjoyed my time and fell in love with the sport . I swam all 4 years on my high school team. After High School I then continued my passion for swimming by teaching swim lessons and being a lifeguard for 4 years now.  When I’m not in the water and coaching I am studying for school, working to achieve my undergraduate in Mechanical Engineering. I love doing what I do and being able to have an impact on kids life’s and them impacting mine. Here’s to a great season !
