Miss Wendy's Resume'

    Wendy started teaching in San Diego with her own son while attending a Mommy and Me class at the Y.M.C.A.  The instructor of that class saw potential in her and began having her assist with other children.  In 1973, she moved to the central coast where she received her Water Safety Instructor Certification and her Adapted Aquatics Certification from the America Red Cross. She began teaching her own Mommy  and Me   classes in Seaside in a rented backyard pool.  These classes were later moved to a pool in Carmel Valley. After the birth of her second son, she moved to another rented backyard pool in Marina, where she taught small group classes for 23 years. Many of her students went on to join local swim teams. A number of them swam at the junior national and national level. 
  Wendy also was the director of the swim program for the former Fort Ord's Youth Activities Office. She and her staff of six instructors taught an average of 150 children and adults each month, totaling thousands  during her 15 years with the program.
    She has taught swimming for the physically and mentally challenged at two locations on the penninsula.
     Wendy has been trained in Adult, Child, and Infant CPR, as well as First Aid.  She has taken numerous college level courses in child psychology and early learning. 
    In the late '90's she received her coaching certification in Synchronized swimming and launched the Monterey Synchronized Sea Otters, a new local team for which she was  head coach for three years.
     From 1999 until 2006, Wendy took her classes to Salinas Athletic Club, where she continued to teach children and adults, until finally finding a permanent home at our current location.
