    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.

    I have always loved to swim, I just love the feeling of being in the water. I started both my boys swimming when they were 12 weeks old and found it to be a beautiful experience (they are 2 and 4 now and both adore the water too). I started with Puddle Ducks as a Poolside Assistant and then went on to do my teacher training the first chance I could. Its an amazing job on so many levels; seeing the babies relaxing in the water for the first time with their carers, to seeing Dippers achieve fully independent swims is just so fulfilling. I also love the fact that we not only teach children swimming techniques but also how to keep themselves safe in the water – I am so lucky to be able to do a job I love that also allows me so much time with my family.
