Q+A with Micheala

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

The atmosphere and everyone that I get see each day! Our teachers and customer service staff are incredible, and I love getting to know all the families that swim with us.

What do you believe makes you a great site director?

I love working with kids and my staff is amazing! My love for being a part of an organization that serves people enables me to be passionate about every aspect of my job, and having a staff that is so caring and fun creates a wonderful environment!

Share a childhood memory about your experience with swim lessons.

I have always loved the water and swimming. My earliest swim lesson memory is learning to float in about 2 feet of water. I grew up swimming and being around water, and when I was very young I would pretend to be a lifeguard and “rescue” my older siblings!

What favorite memory do you have from working at Emler?

I have so many amazing memories at Emler. Ones that stand out are each semester getting to see the most fearful students overcome their fear and not only learning to swim, but loving it by the end of the session. My favorite memories with staff are our Summer and Christmas parties, and Lifeguard Olympics!
