Originally from Scotland, Lucy spent over 15 years working in Global Health, Safety and Environmental Management. She has worked in the United Kingdom, Ireland, Holland, Norway, Africa, Canada and the USA. The health and safety of people, has always been her driving passion. Transitioning to solely children’s safety was always her personal career objective.
Understanding that Drowning is the ‘3rd leading cause of unintentional injury death worldwide’* and living in a community with large lakes and pools, Lucy sought out survival swim lessons for her 9 month old baby. Lucy knew immediately that empowering babies, infants and children to survive in water was exactly the safety career progression she had been looking for. After intensive research, she signed up and completed a rigorous Infant Aquatics training program in Dallas with Bev Steinfink and her team. With over 100 hours of in-water training combined with learning the physiology, psychology, and development of children between the ages of six months to six years old and how they apply to water survival, Lucy is fully prepared to devote herself to teaching your children valuable skills they will have for a lifetime.
As a parent, you want the best for your children and your children to be safe near water. With so much of our leisure time spent near or at lakes and pools, Lucy endeavors to make a difference to water safety and support parents to reduce the risk of drowning by teaching children the Infant Aquatics℠ swim-float-swim technique in a loving and safe environment, where they can learn to really enjoy the water, while developing strong confidence in both child and parent alike.
