Emily was a lifeguard and started teaching water safety to Girl Scouts during this time. She was a swim instructor and marine mammal trainer in Florida before she moved to Lincoln. She uses positive reinforcement with each student to teach them to respect, but love the water. Emily has worked with many species, from dolphins to cheetahs and would love to know about your child’s favorite animal!
