Coach Jen's beginnings were as a member of her high school swimming and sailing team. Ocean racing is what led her to the Islands and eventually making Maui her permanent home. Once she settled in warm waters, she acquired her Captain's license and worked as a professional Boat Captain for 10 years and ran a Charter Boat company with her husband for 22 years. After earning her BA in Liberal Arts, she began to focus on family. But raising two boys involved in swimming surfaced her history and passion the sport and she made the decision to begin teaching. With 20 years of involvement with the swimming community on Maui, she has been coaching on deck for the past 9 years, including 8 at Lahainaluna, Coach Jen is truly a treasured member of the Lahaina Swim Club!
