She has over 10 years of experience teaching swimming lessons to kids of all ages and levels; she was previously employed at the University of Toronto Mississauga (UTM) Pool where she worked as a Swimming Instructor, Pool Supervisor, Lifeguard, and youth attending Camp U of T Mississauga a few summers ago!
