Allyson Ortner

Allyson started swimming with her club team when she was 10 years old. She then continued to swim up until she graduated college in 2016. Allyson's favorite stroke was freestyle, but her best was butterfly.  She has been teaching swim lessons for 8 years and loves teaching young swimmers how to be safe and comfortable in the water! This will be her second summer season with the Oakwood Mako Sharks!

"I can't wait to help introduce young swimmers to the world of swimming." - Allyson
