“Kim knows how to make it fun, and yet still help move out of their comfort zone. She does this so gradually that he never felt stressed or afraid. Each activity builds on the next and helps them make noticeable progress every lesson. Her positive attitude and encouragement are contagious.”

“This was such a positive, confidence-building experience for me! I felt so much better about my ability to swim! I left looking forward to being in the water! As I have grown older & continued to feel less confident in the water, I tried to keep working harder in the water, which resulted in more anxiety. Kim’s approach is: ‘The water is your friend; you can relax & take it slowly.’ What a tremendous difference that made for me!”
