About Tahlia

Hi my name is Tahlia and I currently reside in Newcastle Australia with my husband and puppy. I have an Advance Diploma in Hospitality Management in addition to holding a Teacher of Swimming and Water Safety plus Infants & Toddlers licence both from Royal Life Saving Society Australia. I also carry my First Aid Certificate CPR and Working with Children.

Growing up around beaches and backyard pools I have always loved the water and would always be swimming as a child then competitively as a teenager. Living in a country surrounded by water I believe it is important not only to have the skill to survive in an accident but also have respect for the water.

After working in the hotel industry and through the pandemic I decided it was time for a career change. In late 2022 I joined AquaStars Swim School as a Learn to Swim Instructor and began teaching alongside Toby Rocha who had completed the Infant Aquatics program in 2018. Toby knew a survival swim program was something that was lacking in Australia and as demand for lessons grew I was given the opportunity to come to Colorado and train with Infant Aquatics founder Judy Heumann.

I have had the pleasure in teaching children from 6 months to 4 years and these children are truly amazing. They learn so fast work, so hard and are so capable of anything they put their minds too. During my time at Infant Aquatics I've participated in the hands-on training approach with real life situations that have helped me to gain the necessary skills to teach the entire Swim Float Swim program back in Australia.

I am excited to now be a part of AquaStars Swim School as a Certified Infant Aquatics Instructor. The skills these children learn during the Swim Float Swim program will not only save their lives but build a foundation to be confident and have fun in the water where ever it may be.
