My name is Sara and all of my life I have loved being in or around water. My family loved spending time at the beach, at our family lake house, or in our neighbor’s pool. I cannot recall a point in my life when I did not know how to swim and that has created a passion in me to help others obtain the same comfort and love that I have for the water!
My goal is to not only teach your child how to survive if they were to find themselves in an unfortunate situation in the water, but also to teach them the skills to increase their abilities and confidence as a swimmer. From a young age, I always knew I wanted to enter into a career path that allowed me to help others succeed. I learned from my mother, who was the director of a special needs school, to love and accept everyone no matter their differences. I began working with individuals with special needs through volunteering with my mother and then on into college when studying and completing a degree in Recreational Therapy. I believe everyone should learn survival swimming and the skills towards being comfortable and confident in the water and as a Recreational Therapist my goal is to extend this to all children. Splash Safe Aquatics, LLC offers programs for children starting at 6 months and up. These programs include survival lessons, swimming and stroke development, and a program that caters to the specialized needs of children with autism.
I have spent over 400 hours of intensive hands on training with a lead instructor and completed academic study in the areas of child development, behavioral psychology, anatomy and physiology, and water safety guidelines. I currently hold certifications in Infant Aquatics, CTRS (Certified Therapeutic Recreation Specialist), American Red Cross Lifeguard, CPR, First Aid, and AED for the Professional Rescuer. I am proud to be an Infant Aquatic Survival Specialist and I want to be a part of helping your family learn these lifelong skills to safely enjoy being in and around the water.
Splash Safe Aquatics, LLC is located on the Gulf Coast in Mobile, Alabama, where there is no shortage of water! From the bay to the beaches, and to the many swimming pools that so many families have in this area, water is everywhere, and so is the terrifying reality of drowning accidents. I truly believe this program can help teach the skills needed to save the lives of children in our community.
