Hi!  My name is Julia-Scott Dawson.

I am what you might call an unlikely swimmer! 
After a particularly traumatizing swim lesson when I was young, I told my mom that I would never get in a pool again!
However, three years later, I realized that I did love swimming and joined a year-round team! 


I have swam competitively with a local year-round team as well as for recreation with open-water swims and triathlons!


I love working with kids and have six years of coaching and swim instruction experience. 

I am passionate about providing positive, compassionate and fun swim lessons!


I am a recent graduate of UNC-Chapel Hill, where I majored in English and Creative Writing. 

When not coaching or swimming, I enjoy hiking, reading, playing with my dog, Butters, and finding an excuse to eat chocolate!

See you at the pool!
