Alex taught her first substitute swimming lesson at the tender age of 12 and immediately realised that she was destined to follow in her mother’s footsteps and become a swim coach.
Her love for children and her passion for the water saw her pursue a successful swimming teaching career all through her high school years .
At 16, she joined the NSRI. It was here that she realised the importance of Water Awareness and Safety, and she endeavours to share this lifesaving knowledge with all the students at Hout Bay Swimming Academy. Alex also holds and Internationally recognized Safety and Rescue certificate from the STA.
Alex has gone on to manage the administration and communications of HBSA and she ensures that operations run smoothly.
