Owner / Studio Director
Mr. Rob, as he is referred to in the studio, has been teaching and coaching children of all ages since high school.
An All American High School Swimmer, he served as a lifeguard, swim coach, and swim instructor while swimming pool manager at a Grand Rapids Country Club.
After marrying, Rob and Jillian decided it was best to interrupt Rob’s CMU education to build the studio. He was able to return to CMU completing his degree in 2000.
While working to build the studio, Rob also served as the assistant swim coach at Alma College for five seasons, taught swim lessons for the Lucky Duck swim program, and assisted with the Lucky Duck intensive summer camp for swimmers ages ten and up.
In addition to the many hats he wears at the studio (He has even taught his own dance classes), he is also a substitute teacher in Alma Public Schools. Mr. Rob serves in our community representing DDD as a board member of Child Advocacy and Pine River Arts Council.
