"Just wanted to let you know how impressed I am with your programs in Gainesville! My three boys have made great strides in just two lessons!"
SwimKids Swim School At our SwimKids Leesburg location, Coach Sami keeps her kids smiling! This spring she graduated from Loudoun Valley High School, and is headed to Florida State University this fall to double major in Computer Science and Criminology.
Sami is most proud of representing her school as a swimmer at States, for the last FOUR years - a huge accomplishment! Why does she love working at SwimKids? “The people. The kids are great and my coworkers are lots of fun.”
In her free time, Sami likes to watch baseball, especially the S.F. Giants, and makes weekly trips to Chipotle to hang out with her friends. She dreams of one day visiting Spain, a place she would love to go to if she decides to study abroad.
If Sami could be any animal, she'd "be a dolphin so I could spend all my time in the ocean”. Sami, we hope all your dreams come true and we thank you for being part of our SwimKids team! Mantener en la natación (keep on swimming!).
SwimKids Swim School Erin is an Assistant Manager at our Gainesville location. Originally from Fredericksburg, VA, Erin has been with SwimKids for over seven years! As you may have guessed, Erin loves SwimKids and loves the opportunities for personal growth. "I love the people I work with! It’s like coming in and working with my best friends. I love that I am my best person here.”
Erin likes to root for the Washington Nationals and her favorite food is "cookie dough ice cream with Reese’s magic shell". Erin is "most proud" of her husband, Neil, because "he's a teacher. He works so hard and is so passionate about what he does".
In early September Erin and Neil will be welcoming their first baby into the family! Dedication and passion must run in the family, Erin, because we see it from you everyday in helping our dolphins learn to swim. We are so grateful you are part of the SwimKids family and can't wait to meet your new addition!
