Coach Jessica is coaching our gold and senior groups. My swimming career began at the ripe age of 5 where I swam for Hanford Swim club. I swam club until I was a Sophomore in high school. I trained under Gary Ota and Phil Black, both well known coaches in the valley and competed at Zone championships multiple times. I swam and played water polo for Hanford West High School for 4 years before I attended CSU Monterey Bay for water polo. I am currently coaching Sierra Pacific swimming and water polo, I have been coaching there for 8 years winning 5 league titles for each sport. I spend a lot of time on the pool deck coaching but I truly enjoy watching my own kids swim and helping others with their love for the sport!
