              Hi, I’m Heather! I became a swim instructor with Infant Aquatics CT when my friend showed me a picture of her daughter floating in the pool… by herself… at seven months old. Wow! Needless to say, I was amazed and surprised that someone so little could learn how to swim!

               I immediately signed my daughter up for swimming lessons. While she was learning to swim, I was learning how to teach her. I was impressed with how quickly my daughter learned the skills, not only to survive, but to truly love swimming. After working one on one with her, I realized I could help other children learn to swim and love it too!

              I’ve had a long connection to swimming; I learned to swim as a toddler, joined my first swim team during my elementary school days, started teaching swim lessons about 25 years ago, and became a swim coach about 15 years ago. I specialize in stroke technique and love to see my clients excel in the pool.

             I stumbled upon Infant Aquatics CT a few years ago on Facebook and realized this incredible skill was something I wanted to incorporate into my teaching. I reached out to Dena and have been with Infant Aquatics CT ever since. Everyday working with Dena and the children is a true honor!

              As a mom of five, ages teens through toddlers, working with children is a passion of mine. I’ve dedicated my entire adult life working with or for them and am certified in Early Childhood Education, Early Childhood Development, and CPR.

             Water safety has never been a question of importance. Working for Infant Aquatics CT has been my favorite job since it’s given me the opportunity to teach children how to save themselves and build their confidence! Outside of work, I love to cook and bake, do arts and crafts, hike, dance, and weight lift. My favorite color is light blue, and I love hummingbirds and sunflowers.

             As the mom of 3 lovable and rambunctious boys (James, Ashton, and Ryder), I became an IACT instructor after my oldest was trained by Dena. It was amazing how such a young child could roll into his float and save himself. 

             I wanted to learn more about the program and how to teach children to do this amazing skill for themselves. It’s been years since I joined IACT and I am just as amazed each time a new student learns this life-saving skill.
