Being a Product of the System

For the past decade, I have been hard at work creating a system that will provide many advantages to the swimmers and families that choose to be a part of it.

Turnover and Working with the Millennial Generation

By |2017-10-24T13:42:03+00:00March 30th, 2016|

My Kindergartner and my “aha” Moment

By |2015-11-04T13:42:28+00:00October 1st, 2015|

This year, my 5-year old daughter Valentina is attending kindergarten. Normal enough right? Not so much. Although having a 5-year old cry on her first day of school is nothing out of the ordinary and sure, her crying makes it super difficult for mom and I to let go, we understand that it is part [...]

School is back in session…Now what?
