Karen’s Swim Profile

About Karen

I have been involved in Aquatics for the majority of my life.  I was a full time international swimmer for just under 10 years.  I retired from swimming in 2004.  I still have the pleasure of being involved in Aquatics as a teacher to a variety of ages and ability.  I am also a proud wife and mother of two.

I am interested in finding the correct aquatic pathway for each individual to ensure that they have the ability to reach their chosen potential.  As a mother I also am interested in child development and different learning styles.
