Nadine hails from the Bay of Plenty, New Zealand and is Mum to two young children, both of whom are enjoying learning to swim with SWISH! Her family has spent most of the past 6 years living in Asia (Hong Kong and Singapore). Nadine used to work as a civil servant in the New Zealand government, and the New South Wales state government.
Nadine joined the SWISH! Swimming squad and found her childhood passion for swimming reignited, as well as a new love for Mermaid Merfins! When an opportunity came to join the coaching team she dived at it and gained the relevant AUSTSWIM qualifications and completed training.
"I used to swim competitively when I was younger, and I love spending time in the water. Having two lively boys, I am also used to dealing with children, and I find teaching kids to swim and enjoy the water, a highly rewarding experience. I never thought I could make such a diverse career move, but I relished the change and love my job!''
