Crystal Schinzler, Water Safety Instructor

After losing her niece Kameryn in a drowning accident, Crystal became passionate about water safety and competency. She later became certified to teach swim lessons. She knows she can’t change what happened to Kameryn, but truly believes that by teaching swim lessons and water safety, she can help other families not have to go through what her family went through. Crystal loves working with children and has taught dance as well as served in Children’s ministry for over a decade at her church. She has been married to her husband for 20 years and has 3 children.
