You opened Wolfies Swim School in 2005 after teaching swim lessons in your parents’ pool. Why is swim safety important to you? 
I grew up basically in the water. It is such an important part of my life. I want everyone to have the same love for the water that I do.
At what age did you learn to swim and how? 
I actually taught myself how to swim. I was jumping off the diving board at 18 months.
You tell parents, “I want every child to have the same experience that I had – learning to love everything about the water and how to be safe while doing it.” What do you love about swimming? 
Everything! Relaxing in the water, feeling light, and just being carefree.
What sets Wolfies apart? 
Our small group classes, exceptional customer service, and monthly give backs to our community.
You’re a mom to four wolfies, what lessons do you hope they absorb when they see you working at Wolfies?  
That hard work pays off and that it’s important to be a human that gives back.
