Blair Flores was born and raised in Houston, Texas and moved to Dallas in 2015 where she began her aquatic career with Emler Swim School. She started off as an Aquatic Director at Plano and has now worked her way up to Site Director.
I love the atmosphere we have at Emler. Everyone is always smiling and laughing which brings joy to facility. I also enjoy seeing how many lives we save daily by teaching swim lessons. It’s not every day you get to talk about how you are making an impact by teaching a life saving skill.
My staff! They are by far the best group of people I have ever worked with. It’s not very often that you can walk into a workplace and have everyone yell your name and ask you how your day is going! We genuinely care for each other like family, which rubs off onto all of our children that walk through the door.
I have always been a fish in the water. Every summer I would swim for the Greatwood Gators and I actually won “Most Improved” when I was 6! My favorite job was when I coached for the Greatwood Geysers. The love for the water has always been in my veins, but coaching really secured my future passion and what I want to do for the rest of my life!
I love seeing our swimmers walk up to their parents and say, “I don’t want to leave.” We care for our families just like they are our own, which makes working at Emler like a never-ending family reunion.
Schlitterbahn and I have had some memories. One of which is when I was 9, I went into the “lazy river” with my brother and was dragged under the water by the current that comes from the “Boogie Bahn”. There were so many tubes in the river that I could not stand up and catch my breath. Luckily a man saw me under his tube, grabbed my arm and pulled me up for air. I am always a little bit wary when I get into a lazy river, but I am never going to let my fears hold me back from having fun!
The silly stories my kids tell me every week constantly keeps me giggling.
I love spending my free time watching Disney movies with my husband and 2 pups!
