I grew up in South Florida and was a near drowning victim at 17 months old. My mom decided what happened to me, will never happen to another child. I started working the company at 18 years old and worked it from the bottom up. I have my masters in business and my masters in Special Education. As a special needs mom, I wanted to make sure every child can learn to swim. As a company, we have incorporated visuals to allow for accommodations and modifications for children who learned differently, and with that, we have had nothing short of success, with the most amazing children on the planet. I decided to take on the journey of a franchise owner, and continue saving lives, and growing the family business. I am who I am today because of my mom and aunt, the two owners of this amazing company. I could not be happier, owning my own Baby Otter Swim School and creating that safety for children and the comfort for parents of having that peace of mind that your children have the education on how to save their own life, if they were to fall into a body of water. Saving lives one child at a time, has become my priority, and has always been, and will continue to be my passion.
