I started competitive swimming following a family tradition, as my father is a retired water polo coach. At age 5, I won several medals in national competitions. At 12 I started playing water polo for Brancoveanu, a newly established team, and together we won the national title.
Shortly after this performance, I was selected for the national team and moved to Steaua Bucuresti. With this club I managed to win the national title, after a fierce battle with Dinamo.
Next season, I was selected by Dinamo, with whom I won the national title again.
At age 24, I quit professional sport due to injury. I have decided to pass on what I learned in 19 years of experience, so I graduated from the internationally accredited School of Coaches.
I’ve been teaching swimming for ten years for people of all ages as well as for children with disabilities. I love what I do and practice the profession with passion; I believe that the desired results are achieved with patience, calm and good humour.
