Kiyana is a devoted mother of 4, born and raised on Long Island. She has been swimming and lifeguarding with Vicki (the Owner) on and off over the past 20 years. Kiyana began her love for the water at a young age, learning to swim at just 2. As she has moved through life raising her 4 wonderful children, she would always find her way back to working around water. Whether it be as a lifeguard or swim instructor she is someone that loves to be around the pool. In between her years of lifeguarding and teaching, she pursued her education to become a certified CNA. She also worked as an EMT for many years. During the offseason from swimming lessons in the Hamptons, Kiyana cares for her beautiful family. In addition to caring for her family, she also works in health care as a Direct Support Professional for adults with special needs.
Kiyana taught all her children to swim at a young age and as a result, they all love the water as much as she does. She is double certified by the American Red Cross in Water Safety Instruction and Lifeguarding including CPR, first aid, and AED. She has taught all ages and levels of swimming and gains more knowledge every year just as we all do through teaching. Additionally, Kiyana has experience working with small and large group lessons, mommy and me classes, and she has some experience in water aerobics.
Kiyana is a valued member of our team and we are lucky to have such a dedicated Instructor with us. We are grateful to give. her a home with Art of Swimming and we love having her as a part of our team.
