Claire Wright is a mermaid from the desert. She has over 15 years of experience working with children. Her very first job when she was 14 was lifeguarding and teaching swimming lessons. Claire was a competitive swimmer for 8 years. Swimming was and continues to be a very important part of Claire's life, providing an excellent outlet for energy, personal discipline, and a full-body low-impact means of getting exercise. She feels it is very important that everyone learns how to swim, especially those of us living in a place so abundant with water!
