How long have you worked at FOSS?

25 years!

What is your favorite part of working for FOSS?

I love that we have so much fun teaching people to enjoy and have confidence in water!

What is your favorite FOSS story?

There are so many, but I love to hear families share stories where their children so confidently jumped off the dock or swam in a big hotel pool or went down the huge scary water slide. To hear children showcasing their unwavering confidence in the water—and love of water—makes me so proud of what we do!

As a child, how did you feel about the water? Did you have any particular challenges or lack of confidence you needed to overcome to learn to swim well?:

I enjoyed water, but was not confident in my swimming abilities and spent a lot of time in the shallow end. My children have gone through the FOSS program and it brings me great joy to see them not even hesitate to have fun in the water wherever they are!

What is your personal favorite water activity? Why? (This doesn’t need to be about pool or teaching, could be going to the beach, water balloon fights, anything that points to water fun!):

I love a nice slow summertime sunset boat cruise on the lake with my family!
