Laura started swimming at the age of 5 on the Imperial Valley Swim Team in Brawley CA. After moving to San Diego, she joined Pacific Swim and swam for us for 8 years. After a successful high school swimming career, she went on to swim for Palomar Community college for 2 years before transferring to Olivet Nazarene University in Illinois to complete her college swimming career.
Laura brings a wealth of experience from having swam for both a 2 year and a 4 year college and her home-grown experience swimming for PS as an age grouper has made her an invaluable part of our staff. She prides herself in having coached many swimmers from novice to college swimmers who went on to be 3x NAIA national champions.
Red Group is a very important group of development and one that many swimmers catch fire and begin a lifelong journey in the sport. Laura is a perfect coach and has been a huge part of our success both in developing beginner swimmers as well as taking competitive swimmers to the next step and JO level.
In 2017, she completed her B.S in Recreation, Sport and Fitness and has now begun her first semester of nursing school in 2019.
