  • She teaches with a positive approach

Kerry is proud to be a Florida Gator, Class of 1980. She swam briefly for the university team. Although she can count practices attended on her fingers and toes, she still dreams of running stadium stairs.

Youth swimming includes Randy Reese Swim Team, Navy Jax Swim Team, and Good Shepherd Swim Team in Jacksonville, Florida. This occurred sometime in the distant past, after dinosaurs but before goggles, when starting blocks were called "blocks" for a reason, and the good ones had sand mixed with the paint, so neither you nor your trolls fell off.
