About Kim

My name is Kim Emery. I grew up in Nebraska, where we spent most of our time at the pool and the lake. Learning to swim and water ski at a very early age, I became involved with swim team, lifeguarding and teaching swimming lessons. I passed on the love of swimming to my three children who competed with USA Swimming. I feel most comfortable in the water; it is a huge part of my life.

After leaving a nearly 20-year career in Aquatics Management I am devoting my time to teach Infant Aquatics full time in addition to training and certifying new instructors. It is my passion to teach others water safety, water confidence, water fitness, and to be able to share my love of water with them.

I have years of experience teaching swim skills to infants through adults, graduated the Infant Aquatic Survival Instructor course in 2008 under the training of Bev Steinfink in Dallas, TX.

Kim Emery is a Certified Infant Aquatic Survival Specialist & Infant Aquatic Certifying Instructor.
