Hi Papamoa Families!
I’m Vicki and I am excited to come on board with Fulton Swim School as the new Team Leader! My life has been swimming and lets just say spans over 40years!
I was a competitive swimmer and trained under some of New Zealand’s top Coaches like Hisachi Inomata who worked with our Olympian Swimmers, John Beaumont who was a legend in Havelock North for many years and Burt Cotterill in Hawkes Bay. I have owned 2 private swim schools in Auckland before taking on the role as manager at King’s Swim School in Remuera. This was my “Home at Home” as I was fortunate to live on Site for 15 years. My partner was set on moving to Papamoa 3 years ago but I wasn’t ready to leave. The Swim School was my family and it was a very emotional decision to leave.
After working in other roles, the minute I met with Dan and Kimberley, I knew I had found my new family!! I am addicted to the Beach, and my Pug Harley, so you may have seen me around Papamoa East as I am a regular walker!
I look forward to meeting with you all so come up and say hi!

Hi my name is Rebecca, I am currently living in Papamoa with my husband and three sons.
