As a lifelong swimmer, aquatics has brought great joy to Hannah’s life. She started swimming at the age of four and since the age of seven, Hannah has enjoyed playing Water Polo at many different levels, not only in Canada, but also in the USA and Hungary. She believes that these experiences have given her a thorough understanding of the game and what it takes for an athlete to be successful.

As a coach she feels it is her responsibility to model commitment, perseverance and a positive attitude at all times. By doing that, she believes she can instill a level of confidence in athletes that can translate both in the water and in their daily lives.

Along with technical experience and strategy Hannah hopes to guide our athletes to becoming competent and competitive water polo players.
