My swimming career began in 2004, teaching in a popular swimming pool in the north of Italy. I worked with all ages and skill levels, from babies to adults, beginners to advanced. I was then given the chance to move into a coaching position, and I loved it from the instant I started! I spent nearly four years in this role, primarily in charge of the age group squad, with very successful results in local, regional and national competitions.
Looking for new experiences and challenges, in 2009 I moved to Madrid where I spent the following four years teaching at two swim schools, learning and developing different methods and approaches. It was there that I also obtained the Spanish “RFEN – Level 1 in Coaching Swimming”.
Since May 2013, I have been living and working in London. I have found a thriving swimming environment in this city, full of opportunities to enhance my knowledge and career. I joined SwimWay in 2014 after obtaining the “ASA – Level 2 in Teaching Aquatics”. In the same year, I completed an internship as coach assistant for Chelsea and Westminster Swimming Club, and started coaching for Barnes Swimming Club. A year later I acquired the “ASA – Level 2 in Coaching Swimming”. In order to further enrich my coaching tools, in 2018 I successfully achieved the “ASCA – Level 4” for the American Swimming Coaches Association.
I am a very motivated person, reliable and enthusiastic in what I do. My purpose is to help my students feel safe, comfortable and confident in the water, providing them with all the tools they need to master and control the aquatic environment!
