    It took me a long time to become confident in the water. I was pushed into the water by a stranger as a child before I could swim and that was probably the reason why I started with a fear of the water.

    My parents encouraged my swimming lessons with the promise of a Five Star LP but even that wasn't enough encouragement!

    I eventually broke my fear at secondary school and with the help of my PE teacher I achieved my 25 metre award. I've been a confident, strong swimmer ever since.

    Having two children now, I have made it my mission to make the water environment as fun as possible. I didn't want my children to fear water - respect it, yes - but not fear it as I did. I also didn't want them missing out on water activities like I did growing up.

    I started working at Puddle Ducks as a Poolside Assistant in 2016 and was approached to take up teaching. After some consideration, I decided to go for it!

    My main driver was that I could help at least one nervous child to become confident in the water.

    I am now so excited to be part of the Puddle Ducks team and to help you on your journey of teaching your child to swim.

    PADI Qualified Scuba Diver, STA-Qualified Pool Responder and STA Level 2 Baby & Pre-school teacher (and best cub scout at Faversham swimming Gala 1981!). I gained my passion for swimming at a very young age having nearly drowned as a younger child.

    It was my lovely daughter Gracie May who introduced me to the delights of baby swimming and I haven't looked back since.

    My classes are fun and lively but always with the focus on progressing your child to be happy, safe and loving the freedom that confidence in the water brings

    Out of the water I run all operational aspects of the business; teacher recruitment, training and competency, marketing, pool relationships and pool acquisition. I also love a good spreadsheet!
