About Selena...

I am a mom to two wonderful children and I have had a passion for swimming my whole life.  As soon as I was of age I pursued all my lifeguarding and teaching certifications through the Red Cross and started teaching traditional swimming lessons at the local pool. I soon became a lifeguard instructor and spent my summers as the head lifeguard and swim program director at a summer camp in northern Canada. 

I went on to teach swimming lessons, lifeguard and I even coached gymnastics for almost ten years before going to university. Through university I continued to teach both swimming and gymnastics and to lifeguard. I worked both privately and later as the director and creator of the swim program at Standstead College. Swimming has always been an important part of my life and I have always loved working with children.

I stopped teaching near the end of university, and got a desk job writing policy for the Canadian Government.  I then had the wonderful opportunity to travel the world with my husband who works abroad and had my two wonderful children during our travels. 

I had the time and opportunity to get back to teaching in 2014 in Los Angeles and in 2018 was voted the best swim school in Beverly Hills on Yelp.

 

Now we are back in Canada and I am so excited to bring my program back home to where it all started for me. 

I hope to meet you and your children soon so I can show you how fun and rewarding learning to swim can be.
