Welcome New Instructor Linde Jelsma

In April, Linde Jelsma traveled from the Netherlands to Colorado to obtain her Infant Aquatics certification with Judy Heumann and Kyla Heumann.

Linde, a competitive swimmer and an avid sailor, was a sports management professional and master of culture and change with 7 years of experience working for KNRM (Royal Netherlands Sea Rescue Institute). She is acutely aware of the dangers that water can hold and is excited to follow her passion for saving lives by teaching self rescue swimming to infants and young children as the owner of Blijven Drijven.

Linde’s husband Paul and 12 month old son Tijmen arrived during her training and Tijmen successfully completed the swim float swim course to equip him with the lifesaving skills needed to survive in the water.
