Swim Float Swim! Instructor Certification Report

Summer 2016

Summertime and Swim Float Swim! was packed with babies, instructor trainees and veteran Infant Aquatic Survival Specialists. Mariana Oreamuno from Costa Rica and Jenny Gentry from Steamboat Springs completed their training in July. Mariana’s cousin trained with Judy Heumann in 2014 and needed help to accommodate the growing demand for lessons in her community. Mariana’s enthusiasm and energy endeared her to all of her students.

Jenny Gentry hails from Steamboat Springs Colorado and is the mom of three and grandmother of four. She has spent most of her life happily caring for and working with children of all ages, including those with special needs. After attending her granddaughter’s first Infant Aquatics lesson, she was convinced that she had to be a part of the amazing Infant Aquatics team. Jenny plans to teach in Steamboat in the summer months and Abilene, Texas the remainder of the year.

During our summer training, Judy was thrilled to have visits from certified instructors Kona Morren (Texas), Leslie Harrison (Kansas) and Michelle Alpern (Ohio). It was a great opportunity for sharing knowledge among professionals in the field of aquatic survival.
