    Dana could not be more excited about opening Goldfish Swim School – Park Ridge in early 2018! As a lover of the water and a lifelong swimmer, she understands the importance for children to learn this essential life skill, AND to have fun while doing it! Dana grew up in Birmingham, MI where she was first introduced to swimming at age 4. Her love for the sport developed quickly and continued on throughout college, where she was an NCAA All-American and the 2011 captain of the University of Arizona swim team. After college, Dana relocated to California following a marketing career in the wine industry. In 2016, she was ready to get back to her roots and pursue new and exciting opportunities. As the Owner and General Manager of Goldfish Swim School – Park Ridge, Dana has the chance to combine her passion for swimming and children, with her background in Business Marketing and Brand Management. She is looking forward to welcoming you and your little ones to the Goldfish family this up-coming year!
