Kathy draws her coaching skills and style from training with coaches who rank as icons of USA Swimming – Pat Hogan, Frank Busch, Skip Kenney, Dennis Pursley, and Bob Gillett. Though she now focuses on teaching and training adult swimmers, Kathy coached state and national level age group swimmers early in her career and has coached high school swimming as well. Her swimmers have won state titles and achieved top ten national rankings. One of Kathy’s basic philosophies is that developing the skills that make swimming joyful leads naturally to excellent technique and group camaraderie. She accommodates different learning styles through instruction that integrates data, self-assessment, visual aids, and language. Once a world-ranked swimmer, Kathy still competes as a US Masters swimmer and holds a Level III US Masters Swimming coaches certification.
