Ashlin

Hi there, I’m Ashlin.
I knew I wanted to teach swimming since having lessons as a child. I first started teaching in 2012 when I was 16 and have taught on and off since then in both NZ and Northern Ireland.
I love travelling and the buzz of exploring new places. In my spare time I enjoy hiking, I’m a bit of a foodie and love anything to do with being in the water.
I look forward to seeing you in the pool!

I have worked for the past 32yrs as a bridal consultant having met the most amazing people and I am now see those customers coming to swimming lessons with their children. Great to have those connections with the families.

Hi I’m Emily and I have many years of swim teaching experience. I was also a competent swimmer for 14 years. I have won numerous national titles and represented New Zealand on three occasions. I have just moved back to New Plymouth after spending six years in the USA - three of these as a division 1 swimmer and three as a collegiate swimming coach. Don't be shy to say hello on poolside!

Blake

Blake


Hi, I’m Blake! I started swimming lessons when I was a baby, since then I've done swim squad for multiple years, and go to different beaches and rivers for fun! I really enjoy working at Fulton Swim School, what drove me to become a swim teacher is if someone taught me such a valuable skill, I should teach someone the same! Something I like to do in my spare time is go out on the golf course and play a few holes.
Hope to see you at the pool soon!

Kia ora, my name is Wendy. I am looking forward to being a part of the Fulton swim school. I love being in and around water. I am a mum of 3 older children who I've taught to have a similar passion and respect for the water. I have been involved in surf life saving for most of my life. My favourite thing about teaching swimming is seeing the students' faces light up when they feel success in what they have done. I look forward to meeting you at the pool.
