March Staff Spotlight

Meet Sharon Flessas
Kidzone Attendant and Swim Instructor

How long have you worked with the Y?

Since July 2019

What is your role at the YMCA?

Providing a safe and fun environment for children to play while parents work out.Teaching children to swim and enjoy being in the water.

What is the most interesting part of your job?

I love working with children. Watching a child take off and start swimming is so rewarding and makes me so happy to be able to be a part of that.

If could be an animal, what would you be and why?

I'd be a (momma) grizzly bear with three cubs. I would be the protective momma bear.

What you really do at the YMCA?

A lot of playing! Some mornings you may find me playing on the floor with some babies. Other times you find me in an intense game of Spot It or Uno. In the afternoon or evenings, you will find me in the pool teaching kids to swim. On Saturday mornings you will also find me in the pool, teaching “Swim Starters” and more swim lessons.

Our Mission: To put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all.
