About Me

Hi, it's nice to meet you! My name is Marissa, and I am the owner and sole instructor here at Lakeshore Swim School. I can’t remember a time in my life that didn’t include being in the water. I began swimming at a very early age and haven’t stopped! I’ve spent time swimming competitively, coaching a middle school swim team, lifeguarding, and teaching swim lessons.

I felt compelled to start Lakeshore Swim School in 2020 after moving to Ludington and recognizing a need for swim instruction in the area. I am passionate about water safety and education, even more so living around so much water!

I have so much fun teaching my students to swim, and find a lot of joy in watching confidence levels grow, fears being conquered, and movement in water become second nature. My favorite part of teaching is tied between seeing a fearful child gain confidence in themselves and when everything clicks into place and a student takes off!

When I'm not in the pool, you can find me spending time with my husband and our two kids. We enjoy filling our summer with evenings at the beach and attending events in the community. In the colder months, I enjoy baking, reading, and traveling.
