Hey, Grace here, the founder of Stop Fearing Start Loving, dedicated swim coach and enthusiastic underwater explorer. After 5 years of teaching, the most common questions are: 

  • HOW to overcome my fear of water?

  • HOW to advance my existing swim skills? 

  • HOW to keep my fitness and health habits sustainable?

I will share with you stories, insights and philosophies that'll put YOU in the driver's seat, so you can personally apply and practice what you learn. Take what you want and toss out the ones you don't want. 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 behind into my own hands to find my own working solution. My experience and work turned into helping others do the same.

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

How did this Swim with Grace come about? 

My Message to You...

Keeping my students happy is my #1 Priority! 

“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! ”
