I swam competitively for the Amherst Tritons growing up and continued through college at the University of Rochester. Shortly after graduating I began coaching with the Tritons and am currently the head coach of the Belchertown Sting Rays. I have worked with novice swimmers up to some of the fastest high school level swimmers in the country. I love the water and look forward to teaching any swimmer fundamentals of swimming, competitive strokes and stroke refinement.
