Hi, I’m Jenny!

Educator & Swim Instructor

I am the creator of @Pool.Mom, and a swim instructor of more than 20 years. Before specializing in baby-friendly swimming lessons and water parenting, I taught first and third grades. I have a Masters in Education from the University of Washington, and have taught swimming lessons since 2001.

Now I aim to empower parents to nurture early experiences with water playfully with their babies, using gentle, effective methods… what family doesn’t want to confidently enjoy water play throughout their babies’ childhoods?

Learning the ropes of parenthood is a steep learning curve for many of us. Defining and honoring what feels right is part of that adventure, and walking alongside new moms as they navigate the water with their babies has been one of the most rewarding aspects of what I do.

I’m so glad you found Pool Mom and hope my parenting, teaching, and learning experiences provide some insights to help you along the way, too.


Jenny lives in the Pacific Northwest – right outside of Seattle – with her husband, two children, and dog.
