Brooke Pettus previously worked in Midlothian, Virginia as a dental hygienist. She has two young sons. After her youngest almost fell into a creek, she started researching survival swim lessons. Feeling a new calling to get young kids equipped with swim skills, she decided to make a career switch!
After extensive research into training schools, Brooke chose to certify through Infant Aquatics for 3 reasons: 1) the safety & effectiveness of the Infant Aquatics methodology, 2) the fast responsiveness of the founder & certifying instructors, & 3) the ongoing support of the Infant Aquatics network.
With 100’s of hours of intensive training under her belt by the end of her certification period, she knew she’d be bringing the best survival swim lessons available to her local community. She now teaches in the Bon Air & North Chesterfield area working out of the Midlothian Athletic Club.
Brooke’s no stranger to helping kids do hard things. She has previous expertise helping babies, toddlers, & pre-schoolers overcome dental phobias, tongue-tie and oral wound management, as well as oral function rehabilitation.
With over a decade working in healthcare, she’s well versed in helping young children conquer challenges and succeed at difficult tasks. She’s excited to now help little ones achieve water competency in the pool!
