Born and raised in NJ, Mandee grew up swimming. She loved being in the water and decided to start competing at a young age. After winning a state championship in highschool, she made her way to the University of South Carolina to continue her swimming career. Spending time learning from some great coaches and teaching kids to swim up and down the coast during summers, Mandee has always loved the sport and gained some great perspective over the years.
Upon graduation from college, Mandee moved to Chicago to pursue a career in sports marketing. It wasn’t long in the real world before she figured out a way to return to the pool as a coach for the CAC Masters program. Being able to work with all the swimmers on the team and help them improve is such an honor and after four years, she continues to find joy working at the clubs!
