Rosette G., Manager

My name is Rosette and I was 18 when I started with the company in May 1996. I was promoted pretty young and learned how to manage from very strong managers (the og’s of saftswim). There are many reasons I love what I do. One reason that means the most is the relationships I build with not only my student but my students family. I am part of their family and they are part of my family. Seeing my students grow into confident swimmers that love the water is truly a blessing. It is rewarding...My absolute favorite is having the student say “they want to be a swim teacher just like Mrs. Rosette”. Then years later they actually do come back and work for me/Saf-T-Swim. Samantha Saar, Alex Saar, Kaila Cerbone just to name a few who were exceptional students who became exceptoinal instructors. Another thing I love is hearing a parent come in very proud as they share a story how the child fell in pool and was able to swim back to wall. My favorite things to do are Crossfit and cook.

Brittany I., Manager

Hi my name is Brittany and I am a manager at Saf-T-Swim. I have a very big family spread out all over the country and I love and cherish them very much. I also recently adopted a very adorable Pitbull mix from a rescue organization and he has truly changed my life forever. I love to travel to new places, spend time with my family, and hit the ski slopes. I have been working for this company for 8 years and during this time I also graduated from Farmingdale State College with a business degree. Working for this company holds a very special place in my heart. It is very rare to find a job that you love and excel in. From my very first interview I knew I would call this company home. I love building connections with my students and the families around us. I think what we do here is so important, we fight for a very special cause and that is the importance of water safety.

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

Sheona G., District Manager

I have been a part of the Aquatics and Sports industry for 24 years. My very first job was as a lifeguard and swimming instructor; so, for me it is full circle and rewarding to be able to recruit, hire, and train professionals in the field. I served as an Aquatics Manager for 8 years for the Department of Parks and Recreation in Jacksonville, Florida where I helped develop the Gus and Goldie Learn to Swim Program. Recently I was the Assistant Company Director for Gateway Sports and Pools where I lead sales and operations in NYC, Albany, and CT. As an Adjunct Professor at Lehman College I lectured in Exercise Science, Motor Learning, and the Behavioral Aspects of Physical Activity. I am also a published research author with a research focus in utilizing sports and physical activity as a vehicle to promote life development during adolescence. I strongly believe there are so many life lessons children can learn during sports participation. I received my MA in Motor Learning from Columbia University, and my BS from Lehman College in Movement and Exercise Science. I am a sports enthusiast having played basketball, soccer, and track and field collegiately. Currently I participate in swimming, volleyball, and golf recreationally; and I am a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu blue belt.
