Swim Coaches

Anastasiya

I’ve always loved the water ever since I was young, which has led me to pursuing work in aquatics such as lifeguarding and becoming a Water Safety Instructor. I also swam for four years on Foster High School’s girls swim team and had the honor of being their captain for two! 

Fernando

I was graciously given the opportunity to participate in the Tukwila Pool Swimming Lesson Program as a child and was fortunate enough to pursue my love for aquatics for years after. As a coach, lifeguard, and swim instructor, I am now blessed to help guide the leaders and athletes of tomorrow as the Mako Sharks Swim Club coach.
