I was born and raised in the North Houston area, so this will always be home for me. I attended Texas State University in San Marcos, where I was apart of the McCoy Business school and earned my B.A. in Marketing. Shortly after earning my degree, I moved back home to Houston to be back with my family. I was a competitive swimmer for most of my life, but my biggest accomplishment was completing Ironman Texas in 2015 and earning the ROKA First Out of Water award. The Woodlands is full of people who constantly want to better themselves through health and fitness, which is what motivated me to take on an Ironman. It’s my favorite place to be! I’ve been teaching kids to swim for 10 years now, and it will always be one of my biggest passions. My goal is to make sure every child that walks through our doors learns life-saving skills that will keep them safe in and around the water.
The best part of working for Emler every day is being apart of an amazing team! When a child accomplishes a new skill they’ve been working on or learns to let go and swim independently for the first time, it feels like a win for everyone in the building. We’ve created a family here who cares about every child’s accomplishments and celebrates even the smallest victories.
I believe I’m a great site director because I make sure every child is taken care of and is set up for complete success in their classes. I always put the kids first in everything we do to assure they’re making progress and becoming safe, confident swimmers every time they come to lessons.
My favorite memory at Emler so far has been working with kids who have experienced a water-related incident that has left them fearful of the water. I worked with a young girl that had a traumatic experience and after 8-9 months of never giving up, she finally learned to swim independently again and actually developed a love for the water that replaced her fear. The opportunity to change a child’s perspective of the water and show them how much fun swimming can be while also assuring their safety is one of my favorite parts about working here.
I love the innocence and enthusiasm kids bring to everything they do, they remind us to smile and have fun.
Outside of working at Emler, I love playing tennis and spending time with my family.
