I have been into competitive swimming throughout my growing years in India. I did my Bachelors in Accounting and then my Post Graduation in Finance Management from India. After my younger one started schooling, I started looking for something to keep myself busy. To my luck, I came across Gail Harris who was looking for swim instructors and that's how my journey started.
Being born and raised in India, my outlook to learn to swim was completely different from what I saw when I first started working with Gail Harris. The teaching methods were so different from the traditional swim lessons. I had never seen or experienced something like this where the kids as young as 6 months not only learned the skills needed for them to survive in water in just a few weeks but seeing them enjoy what they did mattered the most. It is then I decided to get myself trained to do something which I am so passionate about. I have always believed that happy kiddos make happy swimmers. I take immense pride and honor to be part of this awesome Infant Aquatics℠ team of talented people.
Following the vision of Infant Aquatics℠, my focus is to provide every child the tools needed for lifetime of swimming skills. Not only they learn how to interact with water safely but also help them build confidence and have fun. I feel blessed to be in a profession where I can empower kids to survive in water. As said, learning to swim may not be easy but knowing how to swim is definitely fun!
