More about me:
For over 30 years, I have been teaching and coaching swimmers at the USA club, summer league, high school, and Masters levels.  I grew up in Nashville, Tennessee and swam competitively as a “Top-16 Swimmer” and Senior National Qualifier for Nashville Aquatic Club. My specialty is in helping children and adults overcome their fear of water and in developing good stroke technique.
I am the founder of Swim Beyond LLC, a premier swim school in Atlanta that teaches children and adults how to swim and promotes the sport of competitive swimming. I also works with children who have visual, mental, and physical impairments.

I founded Swim Beyond the Boundaries Inc., a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that provides financial assistance for swim lessons to children and adults with disabilities and to children of low-income families in 2016. I actively recruit African American children in my swim lesson program to join my summer swim team.

Good Day,

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:( mrsstellakhalil588@gmail.com ) for the full details.

Have a nice day

Thanks God bless
