Hello I'm Grace, the founder of Stop Fearing Start Loving, dedicated swimming coach and enthusiastic underwater explorer. 

I am on a mission to serve you, to unleash the beautiful, radiant and confident swimmer living inside of you. 

As a life student and a public school teacher, with a background in teaching, I took personal growth leaving my fear of water behind into my own hands to find answers to my own working solution. My research and work turned into helping others do the same.

And now I get to share that with the world, starting with you!

How my journey began...

My Message to You...


“Grace is amazing. She makes sure that you are comfortable and customize the lessons based on your needs and is very understanding. She is a great listener and adapts to your feedback. I instantly felt at home in the pool with Grace, despite being new to swimming in my 20s. I never once felt unsafe in the water, and she was always there to guide me. She is also very accommodating. I learned so much from her and am able to swim. You can't go wrong with Grace! ”
