Q: What is your role(s) at the Club?
A: I am an assistant coach, parent, swimmer (sometimes) and committee member!
Q: When and why did you join Kingfishers?
A: I joined the club in the 90s as a competitive swimmer after leaving a different club. I later returned to the club when my daughter joined in 2015 when she was learning to swim.
Q: How did you get involved and eventually join the Committee?
A: I was asked numerous times by Amanda, she finally wore me down and then convinced me to go on my assistant coaching course (which was a great decision), she always knew what was going to be best for everyone, and doing that course was the best decision.
Q: Are you a swimmer?
A: yes I am a swimmer, it’s my passion and I love it. I will hopefully get back in the pool once all this Covid has passed!
Q: Occupation / favourite pastime / All time hero?
A: I’m an insurance broker! I love sport, especially swimming. My main all time hero are my parents.
Q: What annoys you and what makes you happy about Kingfishers Swimming Club?
A: My main frustration is people don’t see how hard and challenging it can be on poolside, a lot happens down there that is not clear to others and this can be hard at times.
It is such a pleasure to see the swimmers achieve what they want, this can be in training or competition. Also knowing I’m making a difference in their swimming journey.
