Anne has been the Club’s Head Coach since 2011. She is an experienced educator with a proven track record of program development and success at the Club, High School, CIS and NCAA levels.  She provides and ensures program vision, organization, student engagement and retention.

Anne has been involved with many swimming programs and has seen many levels of competition.  All have been rewarding and exciting, but being back in the Durham region and working with the Pickering Swim Club has been the most rewarding!  Watching the Pickering Swim Club grow into the club it has become has been heartwarming.  Watching swimmers grow to become amazing citizens is one of Anne’s joys.  “If swimming had anything to do with it, we have achieved greatly.”

For the 2018-2019 season, Anne will be coaching the Gold and Silver groups.
