Substitute Coach

Julie moved to Maryland from Durham, New Hampshire. She began swimming competitively at the age of 10. At 12, she joined Seacoast Swimming Association. She swam for Seacoast throughout high school while also being a part of her school swim team. While already swimming over 20 hours a week year-round, Julie attended high school team practices as well to help teach her peers proper stroke technique.  Julie was ranked Top Ten in New England and has seven New Hampshire State Titles for High school swimming. Throughout her swimming career, she taught lessons to young swimmers on her club team. She also helped coach the NH Special Olympics annual swim meet that was held at her Club Pool. Being at the pool makes her feel right at home, where she can share all the great things she has learned throughout being a competitive swimmer, and many years of teaching.
