Kelsey Quinn


My name is Kelsey Quinn, and I am a swim instructor and coach here at Blue Dolphins Aquatics!

I began swimming on a summer swim league in my hometown of Cashmere, WA at the age of five.
I loved swimming so much that I started lifeguarding, teaching and coaching.
I currently have over 10 years of experience teaching lessons and over five years of experience coaching swim teams including Developmental and USA Swimming sanction teams.  

I adore teaching children of all ages, but my passion lies in teaching swim technique. 
I also find it extremely rewarding to watch young children as they learn to swim for the first time. 


Outside of the pool, I am a Postdoctoral Researcher at the UNC-Chapel Hill School of Medicine. Along with swimming, I also love science!  


I am very excited to be a part of the BDA family and look forward to meeting you at the pool!
