Mountain Wave Swim School, Head Instructor
Emilee Workman is a head instructor at Mountain Wave Swim School. She has spent the past seven years teaching stroke technique and water safety skills to children and adults ranging in age from 2 months to 60 years old. As a child and young adult she competed on various competitive swim teams, including the Rigby HS (Rigby, ID) and Kelly Walsh HS (Casper, WY) varsity swim teams.
Emilee believes that, while swimming is dangerous and often intimidating, anyone is capable of developing the skills necessary to have a rewarding and safe swim experience. She loves the days she can assist someone as they accomplish a goal or overcome a fear. Her primary focus is helping children develop the skills to keep themselves safe in the water so that they can swim independently and with confidence. This focus has allowed her to assist kids of varying ages and abilities as they learn to swim.
The lesson program Emilee is helping implement centers on applying broad goals of safety and stroke technique to individuals with different challenges and limitations. Both the basis in safety and the individualized approach make it unique to the area. Emilee has enjoyed great success with similar lesson programs in the past and believes this method can significantly benefit the southeastern Idaho community.
Outside the pool, Emilee has recently graduated from BYU with a degree in Neuroscience. She has been married for three years and has a one-year-old daughter. Emilee enjoys learning new things, hiking, and eating delicious food.
