Kevin

Kevin has always been in the water for one reason or another. He learned to swim at the age of 4. At age 6, he began to swim for the Chantilly National Bluefins under Nancy Monaghan until the age of 18. After his last year of swimming competitively, he began to lifeguard for NV Pools for the next three years where he taught group and private swim lessons throughout the summer. In 2010, Kevin was the assistant coach of the Stone Ridge Sharks. He is currently enrolled at Northern Virginia Community College where he is studying engineering and is planning to transfer at the end of Spring ‘15. Kevin joined Machine Swim School in Spring ‘13 and has enjoyed his time working here. When Kevin is out of the water, he likes spending his time watching TV, playing soccer, and hanging out with friends and family.
