I learned to swim at 6 months old and spent my summers playing in pools, lakes, and the ocean. I was a competitive swimmer in my teens and have been a life guard, assisted with swim team coaching, and have taught swimming confidence lessons for the past 7 years.
I have completed all 3 levels of Aguahara training and I am developing courses incorporating aquatic dance, aguahara, human connection, and play.
I often describe my experience in life as being a water creature trapped in a land creature body; I am much more at ease in water than I am on land.
I love to help people gain confidence in water by easing anxiety, and offering stroke work to make movements more efficient.
“My daughter has progressed in her swimming skills every class that she participates in. Her confidence in the water has grown in a short time. Kelly truly teaches kids to be confident in the water. Not only is she teaching swimming, but she is saving lives.”
I am available for private or semi-private lessons
for all ages.
I have taught children as young as 6 months
and adults in their 80's.
My private lessons can be catered to your needs and desires ranging from:
- beginning swimming instruction for any age
- stroke work & confidence skills training
- healing water traumas & fear
- guided night swims in lakes or the sea
- assisted distance swimming and/or coaching
- deep diving
(All lessons include a component of swimming/water safety & self-rescue.)
In the summer months of June-September I offer swimming confidence lessons in Lake Siskiyou and The Wellness Center pool in Mount Shasta, California and at private pools.
During the fall I offer private & semi-private lessons at The Wellness Center indoor pool in Mt. Shasta, CA.
During the winter, I offer lessons in varying places as I travel.
I AM CURRENTLY OFFERING LESSONS IN WARM WATER POOLS IN THE BAY AREA: 3 Sisters Sanctuary in OAKLAND & The Inner Sanctum in WOODSIDE, CALIFORNIA.

My daughter Muira is 5 years old. She had taken beginning swim lessons from Kelly last summer, and she had major breakthroughs this year. After just TWO lessons she was confident enough to swim on her own without any floatation. She's diving underwater, and has an understanding for what safety is while swimming. Kelly is simply the best, we are so grateful for lessons with her.
