I have been in the water all my life. I've been a Lifeguard and Water Safety Instructor for 20 years. About 6 years ago I took up open water swim races and fell in love with the sport. Feeling my hand slice through cold lake water, breathing in fresh air means everything for me. Nothing beats the feeling of accomplishment when you cross a finish line!
When I'm not swimming, I'm teaching Water Safety all over Canada!
