For over thirty years, Lee-Andra has been teaching individuals to swim. Starting at 16 years old through college, she taught swimming at kids’ sleepaway camps.
She earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in education from the University of New Mexico. She is a certified water safety instructor through the American Red Cross. Lee-Andra is a licensed swimming coach, levels 1 and 2, through USA Swimming. She also trained through Miracle Swimming.
She found her “swim home” when the Center opened, after working at myriad other pools. She enjoys advancing the Center’s swim team to success. Her motto, “When you train correctly, you become a faster swimmer.”
In addition to coaching, Lee-Andra is skilled at helping those new to the water become comfortable learning to swim while overcoming any fears.
