I was born in Japan, moved to the usa as a child. Started teaching and lifeguarding at John F. Cunningham from 2013-2016. Then I started coaching at Pacific Swimming from 2016-2018, Then I found Missjeanswimming in 2020 and I still work for her while I go to college at S.F. state. I love the relationships I have with my students and my fellow instructors. My passion for teaching kids to swim and be a better person is my purpose in life. To leave the world better than I found it, was instilled at a early age.
