Emler Swim School has announced the promotion of Julia Shah to the position of site director at Emler Swim School of Flower Mound.
Shah joins the team at Flower Mound after having served as aquatic director at Emler in Fort Worth since 2015. She began her work with Emler in 2007, teaching swimming lessons while pursuing her Bachelors of Fine Arts from the University of Texas at Arlington. She left Emler in 2011 to earn a Master of Science degree in creative arts therapy from Nazareth College in Rochester, New York. Shah returned to Texas in 2013 and taught swim lessons part-time while working as a counselor. She is a native of Arlington, Texas, and attended Arlington High School.
“Emler Swim School is a place where each person can be happy, healthy, and cherished,” Shah said. “The genuine care each staff member has for each other and every family in the facility is inspiring. I cannot imagine a more meaningful place for me to be.”
Shah said her goal for Emler Flower Mound is to increase the number of children in the local community who learn lifesaving swim skills. In order to prevent the prevalence of childhood drownings, Shah said the Flower Mound team will help children and families learn how to be safer around the water year-round.
“Our team will ensure the thirty-minutes each week a child spends with us to be full of love, learning, and ‘forever’ memories for their family,” Shah said.
Emler Swim School of Flower Mound is located at 3000 Waketon Road, Suite 102 – just off of Long Prairie Road in Flower Mound. In operation since January 2016, the school features ample parking, on-deck changing areas, heated and crystal- clear UV-treated saltwater for the comfort and safety of children. Parents can comfortably watch their children from a glassed and air-conditioned observation room.
Emler is a different place for your children to learn how to swim. It’s more than being the first company to build a pool inside a shopping strip. It’s also more than having a time-tested curriculum, heated water, or even a highly-trained staff. At Emler, “Safety with a Splash of Love” is at the heart of all of our programs. We teach with care and encouragement, and the Emler Guarantee ensures that no child finishes the semester without having met program goals while developing a lifelong love for swimming.
