I learnt to swim at the age of 2½ and joined Poole Swimming Club when I was 8 years old. I was a member of the Club until I was 16 and competed in many competitions across England and swam for the County.
As I loved swimming so much, I became an Assistant Swimming Teacher and Lifeguard and taught at a local Leisure Centre. When I was old enough to take my Full Teachers qualification, ASA Level 2, I taught swimming evenings and weekends whilst I was at College.
At College I studied A Level I.T. and Sports Studies, also a Sports Diploma and Pre-Uniformed Services. These qualifications have helped me in my career and when I left College I worked at Fitness First as a Fitness Instructor and progressed to Studio Co-ordinator and started one to one swimming lessons in the pool.
While at Fitness First I achieved many NVQ's, which include Personal Trainer, Circuit Instructor, Body Pump, Spinning, Aerobics, Step Aerobics, Weight Management, Nutrition and Aqua Aerobics.
After 2 years it was time to move on and I joined Swalings Swim School part-time and took ASA Parent and Baby and started to set up my own business INDIVIDUALITY, when not working. After a year I left Swalings and ran my own business full time, concentrating on small groups and one to one swimming lessons, also Personal Training.
Since we started in 2002, INDIVIDUALITY has grown to about 350 clients each week and I have several teachers working for me. Becky also helps to run the business.
I learnt to swim at an early age and soon joined Poole Swimming Club. I was a member of the Club for 7 years and competed in many competitions.

I have held my Life Guard license for 4 years now and have been teaching professionally for the same length of time.

I started swimming from a young age and then had lessons from age 3, I went onto compete for Ilkeston Swimming Club and later the Masters Squad at Trident Swimming Club in Derbyshire. I had my daughter 3 years ago and started taking her swimming at 7 weeks old. On returning to my office job soon realised that I had to do something more rewarding with my time and teaching swimming seemed the perfect job. I completed my STA Beginner and Full Teachers qualifications, along with my Baby and Pre School and am soon to do my Aquacise. I love teaching swimming, it's enjoyable, rewarding and fun.
