 John Crew Swim School


Born in Queensland. I was never far away from water so enjoy a healthy and respectful approach to swimming from a young age.  While not a competitive swimmer I came to teaching in my early 30’s as a second career.  I had previously been a youth worker and always had a passion for working with children and young people.

I started taking my own son and daughter to learn to swim at John Carew Swim school where I recognised the value in teaching children young people the importance of learn to swim. I trained under Barb Carew and undertook my Austswim accreditation.

I have now been a successful Infant aquatic teacher the for the past 20 years.

I still value the skills and learn to swim program that the center offers to its community. I love the opportunity on a daily bases to teach children and there parents the life saving skills of water safety and Learn to swim.
