AMaNDA LOUIE | CO-FOUNDER

Amanda is a late bloomer to swimming, but loves it nonetheless. Growing up in the 'Big Apple' wasn't exactly conducive to swimming. But, like everything else that she accomplishes in her life, she embraces the unknown with open arms and  believes that overcoming challenges make life a rewarding experience. She completed her first triathlon recently and looks forward to her next challenge.
