    Who's better to lead a Goldfish Swim School program than a mom of a Goldfish swimmer!

Cat has grown with Goldfish over the past 2 years and has held positions in the pool, behind the Front Desk, and most recently as your friendly neighborhood General Manager. Cat adds value to the Goldfish brand by sharing her passion for swim safety, her dedication to providing safe and engaging work environment for the Henrico County workforce, and a culture of warmth and compassion to all Goldfish family members. She is always available to answer a quick question, calm a nervous swimmer, or simply slap you a high-five of encouragement!
