Swimming has always been a major part of Andrea's life. As a child she spent her summers at the pool. At 16 her coach asked her to come in on a Saturday morning to teach; afraid to say no, she showed up that morning. Since then Andrea has had many hats as a lifeguard, swim instructor, assistant manager, aquatics director, and general manager at YMCA's, clubs, and schools. Although she loves teaching all ages, her favorites are infants and adult beginners. Swimming is a unique sport that can save lives. It is never too early or too late to learn.
