Amy Yvonne Hassinger, founded Charleston Swim in 2010, with a mission, to provide quality lessons and fantastic customer service that was convenient to the client. Growing up, Amy was always in the water. She enjoyed many water sports and was a lifeguard and swim teacher throughout her school years. Since starting swim lessons in Charleston she has worked with over 600 families. She holds certifications and training such as: CPR, AED, 1st Aid, PCIT (Parent-Child-Interaction-Therapy), Positive Discipline for Toddlers, and Neuro-linguistic Programming. Her aquatics training is through the RedCross and YMCA. Amy loves helping people overcome fear, gain confidence, and accomplish goals. After studying Child Psychology and development at Charleston Southern University, Amy realized accomplishing this was more than a cookie cutter lesson plan on water skills. That's when she decided to open Charleston Swim; because life is not just about getting by and being safe but living to your fullest potential and enjoying every minute of it!
