.Hi there! I am Coach Abi!
I have been a coach for Pleasant Ridge since 2011. I grew up down the street from the pool and swam from ages 5-18. Summers in Pleasant Ridge are the absolute best and I feel so lucky to be part of such an amazing community.
During the school year I loop teach 1st and 2nd grade at Addams Elementary School in Royal Oak. In my free time I love being at home with my husband Steve and dog, Lady.
Hello everyone, I'm Mary!
This fall, I will be a sophomore at Grand Valley State University, where I am studying exercise science on the path toward physical therapy. At school, I am involved in Camp Kesem, and I am a member of Phi Sigma Sigma sorority. This summer, I can be found at the gym or by a pool; I love working out and staying active, and I am a lifeguard at Red Run Golf Club. I swam competitively year-round for nine years. My first experience with swimming was with this team when I was nine years old. I went to Royal Oak High School and swam on the girl's varsity team all four years. Although I decided not to continue my swimming career in college, I still love this sport so much, and I am so excited that I get to continue to be a part of this team and help shape the next generation of PR Piranhas!
