Bettina V., Manager

My name is Bettina. I have been with the company since July 2007. I started working for Saf-T-Swim after college. But water safety has been important to me my whole life. I grew up on a canal and received my boating license when I was 13. When I turned 16 I became a lifeguard. Fun fact I am also a certified scuba diver. When i'm not swimming you can find me on an outdoor adventure. If it's cold outside i'll be in the snow. I love to ski. I also love babies (I have two of my own). We have the best job because we get to pass on our love and understanding of the water. The skills and lives we touch will be remembered for a lifetime.

Jake M., Supervisor

Hi my name is Jake and I have worked for Saf-T-Swim of Oceanside for a little over 5 years and I truly love what I do. I love being able to work with the kids and have an impact on people’s everyday life. I have always loved the water whether it’s being in it or being around it. To say I do that for a living is amazing. Another thing I love most about this job is the people I get to work with every day. They have become a second family to me. During my free time I love to listen to music and play basketball.

Amanda F., Supervisor

My name is Amanda, I have been with Saf-T-Swim for almost four years. I started working part time while I was in Graduate school, I now have a masters degree in Psychology. Having knowledge of human behavior allows me to adapt to the needs of all students. Growing up my brother and I spent our summers swimming in any body of water that we could find. This has helped me foster a love of swimming.

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.
