How long have you worked for us?: I have worked at the CRWC for a little over 3 years. 

What have you learned from working here?: I have learned really good communication skills. Not only communicating with my peers and co-workers, but with patrons of all ages that I help learn to swim. 

What is something interesting about yourself?: I studied abroad in India this winter with a group of Iowa students!

What is one thing you wish everyone knew about working in your position?: This job truly provides students with an excellent opportunity to grow and learn about themselves and others. I have seen personal growth within myself over the past 3 years here. Also, that the pool isn't that cold!
