MEET THE TEAM
Swim School Director
Felipe was born in Mexico City, where he discovered his passion for learning about other people's cultures and customs. He learned how to speak English as a second language at the age of 10, and learned how to swim proficiently at the age of 12. On his days off, Felipe loves spending time with his wife and 3 children, playing the guitar, making electronic music and writing as a hobby. You can catch Felipe at both pools during the week, most likely with a cup of coffee and a huge smile on his face, so be sure to say hi!
Aquatics Manager - Juanita
Born and raised in Seattle, Tara grew up around the water. Tara started swimming when she was around 8 years old. (It would have been sooner if she wasn't scared of the water until then!) After swimming for a competitive team throughout childhood, Tara continued her journey and joined a high school swim team where she finished strong in her swimming career. After high school, Tara continued her education by pursuing an AA with an emphasis in business. Tara loves to be outdoors and go camping with family down in Oregon.
