Vinny G., District Manager

Hi, my name is Vinny, and I am 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.

Lauren M., Manager

My name is Lauren, I am a supervisor at the Melville location. I have been at Saf-T-Swim since the Melville location has opened. I love spending time with my daughter Tessa who loves to swim, dance, sing and do gymnastics. What I love most about my job is interacting with both the parents and students while becoming a part of their family and how rewarding it is to see all the accomplishments the children make while in our program.

Gustavo O., Supervisor

My name is Gustavo. I’ve been with Saf-T-Swim for six years. I love teaching everyone how to swim and to overcome their fear.

Annalise H Instructor

My favorite part of my job is watching the kids overcome their fear of the water and start loving it instead! I love seeing their confidence and happiness once they complete a new skill too!

Emily S Instructor

I love making the children face glow when they accomplish a new swimming skill. I also love when parents come back from a vacation and thank me for how far their child has come along. When a child cannot stop talking about swim lessons all week long and jump into the pool at the start of the lesson, that’s when my smile shines and I realize that I’ve done job.

My favorite thing to do when I am not teaching swim lessons is reading because I like to de-stress and expand my horizons.

Julianna T Instructor

I love when my student finally gets that one technique that they’ve been working so hard to perfect and that look of pride and happiness that they finally got it.
