When Debbie Koenig was 4, she watched her younger sister crawl and fall in a pool. She could swim, so she jumped in and pulled her out.
Her sister choked and threw up on her, and Debbie says she knew, even then, that teaching swimming and water safety would be a lifelong mission.
Today, the Napa native and Green Valley resident owns and operates Debbie’s Swim School, specializing in students, young children to senior adults, who harbor a fear of water.
She and her staff also offer private lessons and teach advanced stroke mechanics and aqua aerobics, but her mission is to prevent drownings and help people achieve their swimming goals.
