My name is Ashley Goolsby and I am the owner of WeeSwim School, a company dedicated to teaching survival swimming skills to infants and children. My goal is to provide the children of Pearland, Friendswood and Clear Lake with results-oriented swimming instruction that progresses from water safety to a lifetime of aquatic enjoyment.
I was a water baby and have always enjoyed being in the water. Born and raised in Houston, I started swimming competitively at the age of 12. I taught one-on-one swim lessons to 3-5 year olds with H2O Swims and assisted in coaching the 6-12 year old summer swim team. I also lifeguarded for the University of Houston outdoor pool and swam competitively for Houston's Lamar High School Redskins. I have a degree in Electrical Engineering from Baylor University and worked in the information technology business before returning to the water. Since the birth of my son in 2010, I am even more aware that these precious little lives are worth protecting from life-threatening water incidents. It gives me great satisfaction and pride to teach them the skills to be safe and have fun in the water.
I have completed an intense Infant Aquatics training course that included hands on, in-water training with a master instructor. This was combined with academic coursework in the psychology, physiology, and development of 6 month to 6 year olds and its application to swimming and water survival.
I am infant, child and adult CPR, AED, and First Aid certified through the American Red Cross.
