Meet the Manager of Milton!

I’ve been involved in aquatics my entire life! After almost drowning at the age of 3, I was put into swimming lessons, and my love for swimming quickly blossomed. My humble beginnings in lessons developed into a swimming career spanning 15 years, 8 of which I spent representing Canada on the National Team. Some of my greatest accomplishments include being a National Champion, Canadian Record Holder and Youth Olympic Gold medallist. Despite my success in competitive swimming, perhaps my greatest achievement of all was learning to feel comfortable and safe in the water, something which I owe to all of the great instructors and coaches I’ve had along this journey. My passion for aquatics stems from the great experiences I’ve had, and now I’m dedicating my career to making sure other children get the same opportunity. I look forward to meeting you at the pool and being a part of your journey!

Our Commitment to Safety:

We are as committed to safety as we are to the success of each and every one of our families. We believe that swimming is a lifelong, and potentially lifesaving skill that everybody should learn. As Carolyn Bennett, Former Minister of Public Health & Safety once said:

“Learning what to do when you fall into water is as important as learning how to read and write.”

Hope to see you at the pool!
