In June, 2011, looking for a pool from which to teach, good luck was on her side when she met David Carlins, an Iron Man Triathlete and President of Magellan Development. Dave offered Kathy the chance to train masters swimmers and triathletes at the incredible Aqua Building pools. That was the beginning of her swim school, Swim with Kathy-Chicago. She offers classes based on the latest and most effective teaching methods. Working with age group swimmers on their technique is one of her favorite areas of teaching. Moreover, while 25% of her students are adults learning how to swim, babies, young children, and triathletes are all part of her teaching day.
