I have been involved with swimming since the age of 3, taking part in local lessons. This lead to me competing for my local swim team, Deben SC, in Suffolk for 8 years, reaching a regional standard and also occupying the role of club captain for 2 years. I have been teaching swimming since 2013, gaining my Level 2 qualification in 2016. I joined Swimsound in 2017, working alongside my studies at the University of Liverpool where I am currently reading for a BA in Egyptology. It is always rewarding to see students develop not only their swimming skills, but also their social skills during their time at Swimsound.
