Ann has been coaching with Water World Swim since January of 2011. She completed her first Alcatraz Crossing (which was also her first open water swimming event) in December of 2010 and was immediately addicted to swimming in the bay. Because of Pedro's influences she swims without a wetsuit, event during the chilly winter months.

She is a licensed swim coach under the American Swim Coaches Association. When she isn't guiding swimmers in the water, she helps out with our large events, as she bring years of event planning experience to our team. Ann has also swam in more southern waters of Chile, and has supported in the planning of WWS events there as well.

Ann believes that the best views of the bay can only be experienced from inside the water and says that she feels the most at peace when in the center of the bay, with Alcatraz behind her, the Golden Gate Bridge to her side, and the city landscape straight ahead.

Ann's Training Tip
"The water is your friend... you don't have to fight with water, just share the same spirit as the water, and it will help you move."
