I joined the team when I moved to Burnham after meeting and marrying Mark in 2006.  I have always been a swimmer and loved the sport, my Dad taught me to swim when we lived in Singapore, when I was 18 months old I was jumping off a 10m diving platform, wouldn’t catch me doing that now!  I learnt to teach swimming in 1991 whilst on a my PT course in the Royal Navy and have been teaching and loving it since. One of my biggest strengths is my organisation and communications ability so when I was asked to become secretary I jumped at the chance.  I love seeing the little ones learn to swim and progress all the way through the club, there is no better sport in my opinion.

Interesting fact: I ran up Mount Vesuvius in 1989, it was blooming hard work!
