My family and I built our home in Oviedo in 1999. My husband and I both grew up in Winter Park and graduated from Lake Howell High School. Our twin boys, Lane and Wyatt are 20 years old. I knew when my boys were in ISR lessons that I had to do this one day. I was so impressed with their instructor, their skills, and the ISR program. I have taught Infant Swimming Resource lessons for the past 17 years. I am very passionate about keeping children safe in and around the water. I am dedicated to the ISR mission that, "Not one more child drowns". In 2004 I trained to become a Master Instructor so that I could reach more children by training new instructors. I have trained several ISR Instructors in the area and also had the opportunity to travel throughout the country to train instructors. If you didn't already notice, I love pictures! I love to scrapbook as much as I can.
In 1998 I trained to become an ISR Instructor. At that time ISR was, Infant
Swimming Research. I taught from our Casselberry home and at Bob's Pools, while our house in Oviedo was being built.
From 1998-2008 I taught lessons at our home in Oviedo.
In 2008, I began traveling to train students and new instructors in Connecticut, Michigan, Missouri, and Texas.
In 2009 I joined the Safe Start program at the YMCA of Central Florida. Safe Start is the non for profit partner of Infant Swimming Resource. With the Safe Start program I trained many students, instructors, and coordinated the instructor development program.
In the last 17 years I have taught over 2,000 students, thousands of refreshers, and trained 17 new instructors. I absolutely LOVE what I do and I am so excited to be able to offer lessons year round!
(In case you were wondering, it's not a coincidence that Dawn and I both have twin boys. We became friends over 20 years ago through our "Twins Club").
