Lester Ruiz started his first swim lessons at a preschool he attended in his early years. He then tried many athletic sports ranging from gymnastics, martial arts and basketball but none drew his attention as much as swimming. He swam with his neighborhood swim team during the summer months and continued onto his high school team. He started his career with Emler in November of 2012 as an instructor while attending the University of Texas at Austin. At the completion of earning his B.S. in Kinesiology in May of 2016, he was promoted to a Manager in the Manager in Training program and quickly promoted to Lead Deck Manager for the Westlake location. After a few semesters, he then joined the Anderson Mill team as their Aquatic Director. In April of 2018, Lester was excited to make his move to open Cedar Park as their Aquatic Director and was shortly after promoted to Site Director. In January 2019, Lester was happily named as Site Director for the Austin – Westlake location. Now Lester is ready to be the Site Director of Emler Swim School of Tualatin – he is so excited to meet all of the wonderful families in this area!
