Meet the Coaches
Aquatics Director & Lead Coach
Kim is a supporter and advocate of water safety. She was raised in a family that was always surrounded by water and water activities including the swim team. The love she has for the water shows during each lesson she instructs. Her goal is to educate students the importance of water safety in a fun but serious manner.
Tricia has taught Float 4 Life lessons for the past 10 years and swimming lessons for over 30 years. She has also managed indoor and outdoor aquatic facilities in Nebraska and Iowa. She enjoys working with children of all ages. The best part about being a instructor is seeing the joy on a child’s face when they conquer a new skill!
Brittany taught swim lessons for nearly 10 years before coming to Float 4 Life. She is very water safety focused, while teaching children how to be successful swimmers. She has worked at a number of pools, and managed a fitness center pool, in Oklahoma. She loves teaching children of all ages. The best part about being an instructor is seeing children go from being terrified of the water to loving to swim and knowing how to be safe while around water.
Emily’s family always told her she was born a fish. She enjoyed swimming in her grandparent’s pool, taking swim lessons, and swimming/diving for her high school team. Emily was a lifeguard and started teaching water safety to Girl Scouts during this time. She was a swim instructor and marine mammal trainer in Florida before she moved to Lincoln. She uses positive reinforcement with each student to teach them to respect, but love the water. Emily has worked with many species, from dolphins to cheetahs and would love to know about your child’s favorite animal!
