Q+A with Melissa

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

I love that I get to have fun everyday with some of the best people on the planet. Our staff and customers are like an extension of my family. I enjoy watching the children grow in little ways each week, and getting to know their families better. Though the to-do list is always there, I also get to interject play into the everyday moments.

What do you believe makes you a great site director?

I care deeply about my people and really want to see them succeed. I make myself available to my staff anytime they need me.

Share a childhood memory about your experience with swim lessons.

I started swimming around 6 months old, and I’ve been swimming ever since. I remember practically living in the pool at my aunt and uncle’s house every summer. When I was 9 or 10, my baby brother started lessons and I begged my mom to take me to lessons again so I could learn all the strokes.

What favorite memory do you have from working at Emler?

My favorite memory involves my pretend fishy in the skimmer basket. One day, I had a student who wouldn’t climb out of the pool after class. I was finally able to encourage her out of the pool by suggesting that she help look for my “fish”. On the pool deck, I had her look into the skimmer basket and as she peered into the little holes, I splashed a little water up through the opening. She thought it was the funniest thing! Her initial facial expression was priceless, as she jumped a little and then erupted into giggles. Every week she would come back to lessons and ask about the fish. Even though we have both switched to a different location, she still asks about the fish to this day.

Share a childhood memory when you were brave and overcame fear.

I used to be terrified of public speaking. It’s surprising to me, since I grew up performing in front of large audiences from stage. Any time I had to give a presentation in class, I would become extremely anxious. I don’t think I fully overcame this fear until I had to deliver announcements while working at Emler. Over time, I realized how to make this phobia fun, because I found it was an opportunity to make people laugh.
