This week's #TeamTuesday featured team member is NAC Swim School and American Red Cross Lifeguarding instructor, Justin Cloud!
Justin has been teaching swimming for almost eleven years now. He started teaching at the YMCA when he was a junior in high school and has been teaching ever since. He teaches all age levels from as young as 6 months in the parent/child classes all the way up to adults.
The thing that he likes most about teaching swimming is that he is helping people learn such an important skill for life. Outside of swimming, he is a financial analyst for a government contractor, he has an 11 month old puppy named Mojo, and recently bought a house with his fiancé.
