She swam for Del Vets Swim Team in the summer, swam with the Chichester Aqua Eagles in the winter and was also part of the Garnet Valley High school swim team. She has 3 relay records at Del Vets, which currently still stand today. Coach Jamie’s favorite strokes are freestyle and butterfly. She has always had a dedication to swimming and found so much value in being part of a team. Jamie finds that a person with good work ethic and a good attitude will always succeed. This will be Jamie’s first year coaching, but with her long career in swimming she believes she can provide techniques that she has learned throughout her career. She is so honored to finally become a coach and share her experiences with the Hidden Hollow Swim Club. Jamie plans on becoming an Athletic Trainer for a college once she passes her boards!
