My career with Emler began in October of 2013. I applied for the teacher position while going to school to finish my degree. After two years, I graduated Brookhaven College with a degree in Education. I joined the MIT program and after a year, I promoted to Lead Deck Manager. I have so much passion for teaching kids how to swim and educating the parents on the importance of swim lessons. I knew I wanted to keep growing and not just help kids, but to help develop the teachers as well. After 6 months of being an LDM, I promoted to Aquatics Director here at the Preston-Forest location. My time with Preston-Forest has taught me patience, humility, and love for one another, and I’m so excited to now be the Site Director at this location.

Q+A with Jannin

What is the best part about working for Emler every day?

My staff and the relationships I get to build upon every day, knowing that the children I teach and the families I get to interact with are safer with the lessons Emler Swim School has provided.

What do you believe makes you a great site director?

The people I get to work with every day makes me a great site director. Having them allow me to develop, listen and care for them is very rewarding.

What favorite memory do you have from working at Emler?

My favorite memory from working with Emler has to be my first Waterbabies class. I was terrified that babies wouldn’t like me. When the first baby got handed to me, I distinctly remember him doing a deep stare into my eyes and showing me his big gummy smile. From that point on, babies have been a big highlight in my career.
