I am proud to introduce myself as the head coach of YOUR Community Park Bluefish! Prior to arriving at Community Park, my passion for swimming goes back many years to training at a local YMCA. Like many of ourswimmers, the sport turned into a life-long dedication which took me on a path to aquatics leadership and coaching. I joined the Princeton Recreation Department  team in 2011 as a pool manager and assistant swim coach for the 13 and 14 age group. In 2013, I moved up to coach the 15 & over agegroup and became the Aquatics Director for Community Park Pool. In the months that I am not at Community Park I am a teacher at Hamilton Township Public Schools, and I coach for the NJ Stingrays USA Swimming team out of the Lawrenceville School.

I have been coaching Bluefish since 2012 and I can’t wait to get started this summer! I started swimming when I was 11, and then swam competitively for Princeton High School. I graduated from Denison University in 2018, went on to get a masters degree in elementary education from the University of Pennsylvania, and am now a kindergarten teacher in Dunellen, NJ. Coaching Bluefish has been the highlight of my summers, and I love watching the progression of swimmers as they grow more confident in their abilities and love to swim. I’m looking forward to seeing many familiar faces and meeting new ones, and having a fun filled season!
