Stephen P., General Manager/Lifeguard

Hi everyone! My name is Stephen, the Manager at Saf-T-Swim Coram.

With over twelve years management experience ranging from the Gap to Things Remembered, I am looking forward to working collaboratively with the Coram team to provide a warm, dynamic environment for both our staff and families.
A little bit about myself: I have a huge passion for swimming, and find myself in a second home in the water. I also have a love for children, getting to both adapt and learn all of their unique personalities behind their smiling faces. An avid runner, I find that it brings stability by providing a great outlet to think and an even more awesome chance to stumble upon new tunes! Last but not least, I love movies and tv shows galore and sometimes find streaming services a little too dangerous! 

I look forward to meeting your littles one(s) and providing them with the best swimming experience the island can offer. With each new face that walks through our Coram doors comes an even better opportunity along with it!

Abby Y., Supervisor/Lifeguard

Hello, my name is Abby, and I am the supervisor at the Saf-T-Swim Coram location. Born and raised in Medford, NY and I reside in Lake Grove, NY, with my amazing boyfriend, Ryan. Currently, I am a student at Stony Brook University, with a major in English. My aspiration is to become a K-12 English teacher. Recently I have graduated with my Associate's Degree in Music in 2022, from Suffolk Community College.  I love music and have played over 5 different instruments in my lifetime such as the piano, viola and cello, and have played the violin for over 15 years. I have prior experience as a private music teacher for children ages 5-15 in the Patchogue-Medford school district, which is my alma mater. Some of my other previous experiences include being a Starbucks Barista. This has given me lots of experience working with the public as well as making some delicious lattes

 I have a strong passion for working with children and would love nothing more than to learn about each child individually. I am truly looking forward to making this school a family-oriented environment with lots of care and love applied to each child.

Franco P., District Manager

Hi, my name is Franco Pacific, and yes, my last name is just like the ocean. I was born in West Palm Beach, Florida, but grew up in New York City. I graduated from the Bronx High School of Science and SUNY Stony Brook. I loved the water growing up but also respected it. One of my first jobs was being a Lifeguard and Water Swimming Instructor for 10 years. I have worked everywhere from beaches, to pools, to camps. Since then, I have gained over 18 years of retail management experience with the likes of Target, Nike, and most recently Assurant.
I am happily married to my wife, Mariel Pacific, for 16 years and have 2 wonderful kids, Michael and Olivia. We participate in lot of church activities, especially since my wife is also the Director of Music for St. Ignatius R.C. Church. It’s a way of giving back to the community and helping others in need. Also, I coach my son’s PAL Football team during the fall. Go Tigers! It is great to help guide someone in reaching their potential. That’s part of the reason I joined Saf-T-Swim. I love helping people and if there is anything I can do to help, please do not hesitate to reach out.


Hi I am Val. I have been a member of Saf-T-Swim for almost 16 years. Swimming is an activity that I have enjoyed for a really long time. My favorite stroke to swim is butterfly. To spice things up I learned to swim all four competitive strokes backwards, not backstroke actually swim all four strokes backwards. that's right. Some of my other interests are baseball, baking and going to the beach. My favorite baseball team is the Mets. In working at Saf-T-Swim for as long as I have, I have developed relationships with so many families and watch my students grow both as skilled swimmers as well as great kids.
