Our Swimming Programs

Karen is the Operations Manager at Craigieburn. She took some time from her busy schedule to answer a few questions:

 

1) When did you start working for State Swim?

I started working for State Swim in March 2007 as a swim instructor, coach and CSO and took on the role of Manager in mid 2008.

 

2) Proudest moment at State Swim? 

Having children that you taught to swim and coach come back and become instructors themselves.

 

3) Favourite swimming related memory? 

Watching my daughter who began at State Swim Craigieburn in Waterbabies become one of the first children here to make it all the way through the program and into squads.

 

4) Why State Swim? 

After having worked in the aquatic industry for many years prior, I could see that the State Swim program was exceptional and offered the type of program that saw results.

 

5) Three words to describe your job?

Rewarding, joyful and crazy!

 

6) Something not many people know about you?

I spent most of my life playing waterpolo.  I was fortunate enough to play State League and play and train against and with some of Australia's best players. 

 

7) Who would you like to be for a day?

Mickey Mouse - I'm obsessed with all things Disney
