    Who's better to lead a Goldfish Swim School program than a mom of a Goldfish swimmer! Cathleen, or "Cat" as we call her, is not only an employee of Goldfish Swim School Richmond West End but also a mom of a student as well! 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 Assistant 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!

    Amanda is no stranger to children's athletics, she worked in a Dance Studio in Iowa before moving to Richmond, VA in 2018. She has an unparalleled work ethic, and this trait has been contagious (lucky us!) amongst the Goldfish Crew. She is the mother of 2 amazing boys. She and her husband enjoy exploring car shows and teaching their boys all about cars, inside and out. I am sure it won't be a surprise to you, but her favorite movie is "The Little Mermaid". She is Lifeguard, CPR, First Aid certified, and has completed our Proprietary Curriculum Training, and gained her Spa and Pool Operator Certification.
