Swimming has been a large part of my life since I was a baby. I grew up in downtown Chicago right on Lake Michigan. I was never far from the water and frequently swam at the beach. I have regularly swum at least 2-5 days a week, be that in my school’s pool, lakes, oceans, or at my gym. I cannot wait to teach you the ways of the water here at Diventures!
Above water or below I want to show you the beauty and freedom water can give. As a competitive Individual Medly swimmer who became a scuba diver and a Water Fitness instructor, every age and skill can grow at Diventures!
My love of swimming began at a very early age. One of my favorite memories is swimming the lake with my family around age 4. I love working with kids and helping them follow their dreams, whatever they may be. I have a background in making magic with Micky Mouse and friends at Walt Disney World.
I have been swimming my whole life and have been a teacher for a number of years. I taught college physics for six years, ballroom dance for one year, and chess for one summer. I love the coordination and physics involved in swimming. I am happiest sharing my passion with children and adults.
Nathan found his love for water at a young age while attending Boy Scout Camp and during summer adventures at the lake. He has 12 years of experience as a certified life guard. He is also a certified scuba diver. He believes safety while enjoying the water is a top priority and enjoys teaching all ages the joys of the water.
Swimming has been a passion of mine since my first lesson at age 4. I was a competitive swimmer for over 10 years, traveling all over the United States and Canada for competitions. I come from a family of avid water skiers and enjoy spending time at the lake.
