    My love for water and swimming began in the Berlin Olympic pool when I was about five.

    Since then swimming has been part of me - I swim as many times a week as I can and for some years did the Swimathon.

    I started teaching swimming at the Burgess Hill Swimming Club where all four of my children swam weekly. I have also taught at primary level and for the last sixteen years I have been teaching babies and toddlers.

    Teaching swimming gives me the greatest "buzz," it combines my love of children and water and gives me the opportunity to pass on the confidence and passion that I have.

    It is my dream job!!!

    I have always loved being in and around water, as a young child I loved collecting pennies from the bottom of the pool that my Dad used to throw in.

    After being spotted aged 8 by a diving coach throwing myself into the pool in a somersault at the local leisure centre I was asked to join the local diving team. This soon led to County and National teams where I won National medals and a couple of National titles.

    At the age of 16 it was time to choose between my two loves - diving and musical theatre, I chose the latter and went on to train at London Studio Centre and perform in many shows.

    After my daughter was born I knew I wanted her to have the same confidence, respect and love of the water that I have. A friend of mine recommended Puddle Ducks and I have not looked back!

    I instantly fell in love with the whole concept and I knew I had to be a part of it. I count myself so lucky to be able to do a job that I love, find so rewarding and teaches an invaluable life skill.

    I'll look forward to seeing you soon x

    My first insight to baby swimming classes was when I took my then 4-month old son to his weekly classes. It was the highlight of our week and a lovely bonding time as well as teaching him a life skill.

    Having previously been a Legal Advisor, I decided to change careers and do something I really care about. I've been teaching swimming to all ages from babies to pensioners since 2012 and I love it.

    I joined Puddle Ducks in 2013 and after witnessing the classes I quickly became a customer. The classes are fun and energetic whilst teaching life preservation skills and my kids love it. I was especially impressed with the focus on teaching the children as individuals as well as within the group and giving each child the appropriate progression.

    It's such a rewarding job whether it's watching a baby enjoying the freedom water provides before they can even crawl or seeing the pride of a pre-schooler achieve their 5m badge.

    I look forward to teaching you and your little one in a class soon.
