Hi guys! This is Ms. Kim from Seal Swim School Riverview. I am so happy to be able to work with all our team members and families to pass along my love of swimming and of the water. I have been a part of the Seal Swim School family for six years, for 4 years as Site Manager in South Tampa and 2 years as Site Manager in Riverview. I relocated to Florida from the Washington DC area seven years ago with my husband, two children, and my dog, Sammi (just like the Seal!).
I graduated with a bachelor’s degree in English Literature and Composition from Mary Washington College in Fredericksburg, VA and took photography classes at Northern Virginia Community College; I was planning on becoming a photojournalist and really wanted to work for National Geographic. I was a portrait photographer for Olan Mills for a while, but decided to try some other opportunities. I tried a bunch of different jobs, copy editor, proposal writer, mortgage loan processor, mortgage loan underwriter, but after getting married and having children, I decided to follow my love of swimming and teaching in to a job as a Deck Supervisor and Instructor Trainer for SwimKids Swim School in Northern Virginia. As fellow members of the United States Swim School Association, SwimKids put me in touch with Seal Swim School when my family and I moved to Florida. Always good to ask family for help!
A former competitive swimmer, I love working with children in the water, growing and developing their skills and confidence. Plus, what could be more fun than playing in a pool all day!
