Get to know your local Saf-T-Swim Garden City team!

Michelle C., Manager

Hi, My name is Michelle and I've been working with Saf-T-Swim for over 22 years. I graduated with my Masters in Forensic Psychology. I'm passionate about children learning about water safety and making a difference in their lives. Customer service satisfaction is very important to me! When I'm not at work I can be found on a softball field near or far cheering my girls on. 

Cameron R., Supervisor

I have been working at Saf-T-Swim for 13 years, but I started taking swim lessons at the original Bayshore facility when I was 2 months old. I also swam competitively since I was 7 and swam all through college. I really enjoy seeing the children progress and become confident in the water. I really like the challenge of taking a child or adult who is very fearful of the water and working with them to get them to enjoy the water. My hobbies are going to heavy metal concerts, watching anime, and playing video games.

Vinny G., District Manager

Hi, my name is Vinny, and I am the District Manager of Oceanside, Levittown, Melville and Garden City. I started at Saf-T-Swim in August 2004 at the East Meadow location and then went on to manage the Deer Park, Coram, and Melville locations before becoming a District Manager in December 2019. In addition to managing, I also help with training. I have two amazing children, Scarlett, and Keegan. We enjoy going to the pool/beach, playing games like Mario Kart, and watching movies. In addition, I have two bonus children Rhea and Devaney who I have been fortunate enough to be a part of their lives for a while now. I also have a wonderful wife, Chelsea. In our little time away from the kids we enjoy going out to eat, bingeing shows, and going to the movies. I fell in love with what I do at Saf-T-Swim because of the nature of the relationships we develop. Seeing the families come in week, after month, after year and watching the kids grow is the absolute best part of the job, hands down. The relationships I have personally built over 16 years is what keeps me coming back for more. Of course, seeing the kids obtain the necessary life saving water safety skills is amazing too! When you see them do it at a young age and be so confident you know it’s a job well done.
