  • Pagal sa hirap, makamit lang ang kalayaan, masilayan lang lumayag ang pusong nabihag sa dilim. Araw ng kalayaan. Malaya ka ba?

Drowned in despair, in exchange for transcendental liberation, all to witness my furiously beating warrior heart set its chains on fire so she may sail away up the freedom sky. It's Philippine's independence day. But are you truly free?

Exponte a tu miedo màs profundo, despuès de eso, el miedo no tiene poder, y el miedo a la libertad se reduce y desaparece. Eres libre.....
Proud of my roots, proud of my brown ness, my chinese ness, my hispanic ness. I wish my country of birth true freedom. (I little bird told me lockdown is relaxing, can i go to my happy place now by the island and get my tan back?) #ashtangiforever #yoginiontheloose #poolaide #tannedgirls #summervibes #fbf #yogaeverydamnday #airbenderinthemaking #pathofthephoenix #yoginionfire #ashtangisbelike #fiercetravel #travelforyoga #yogionvacation  #soulmedicine #nusaduabali  #travelforyoga #hispanic #marrΓ³n #orgullomarrΓ³n

  • I'm not trying to beat a horse to death, I actually need to post this for me.

There's been days during the last two weeks (since POOLaide ended) that I've been frustrated other personal and business projects aren't further a long. What have I been doing with my time?! Oh wait. Putting these statistics in one place gives me the grace to be kinder to myself when I wonder where the last two months of my life went. I wouldn't change it for the world, but it does make me realize that it's ok that my house is dirty and that I haven't been exercising regularly and that other projects are still not started.

As Thomas Edison once said, Opportunity is missed by most people because it's dressed in overalls and looks like work. I'm ready to start fresh tomorrow, are you? Link in bio if you missed POOLaide.

  • I took down the sign today! I hung up my Lakeview sign in the garage - my husband's man cave - over two months ago. That was before 1,580 poolies attended 27 live POOLaide Webinars with 35 presenters for 64 + hours and 98,000 (!) minutes of view time on YouTube!

My goal was 250 poolies - and I figured a lot of people I know would show up because they felt bad - so thank you for smashing that goal! Hard work yields results. ❀

This is not goodbye, this is more of a see you later to live webinars and online meetings as there are SO MANY now! We're taking next week to finish & post show notes and video recordings (May 8, 15, 18, 20, 22) before we rest and recalibrate for POOLaide 2.0

Please follow us on Facebook - link in bio!- for sneak peaks and announcements coming in July.

  • After I spent today telling 137 VSMAC conference attendees that the immediate future of aquatics is bleak due to COVID-19 (sorry, it's the truth! πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ) it's only appropriate that tomorrow's POOLaide presenter help us to get on track with health & safety documentation that needs to be updated anyway!

Kira is a colleague with whom I adult by getting Vietnamese followed by DQ blizzards and/or or Wendy's frosties. She's the only person I know who can consume 2 (!) XL Tim Horton's coffees in one day and still be standing; she's a Pinterest worthy baker; tolerated me buying her a beta fish, and she's the most chill person I know when it comes to your health and safety documentation being a hot mess. Not saying that was me, just... she is!

Join us tomorrow (Wednesday) at 1pm EST | 11 am MST (link in bio) if you need ideas where to start!

  • I need to say a big, belated THANK YOU to the Association of Aquatic Professionals (AOAP) for naming me the May 2020 Competitor Aquatic Professional of the Month!  It is a huge honor to join the ranks of other dedicated poolies who make it their life's work to advocate for water safety and drowning prevention.

I also just received the April stats for our YouTube channel: you LOVE playing the recorded POOLaide Webinars! Never could I have guessed that 2,776 viewers would watch 54,954 (!) minutes of aquatic content recorded with my sometimes-awful internet. Thank you, again, for believing in this pet project. And thank you to whomever nominated me for the AOAP award. πŸ₯°

  • Don't you love it when you attend a conference session and you leave with worksheets? To me, it shows that the presenter is extra committed to my learning by providing me with the resources to implement their ideas.

I've seen the worksheets for today's POOLaide Webinar session, and they are AWESOME! What is an inclusive aquatics inventory? I don't really know, so join us at 1 pm EST | 11 am MST today so that we can find out together! Link in bio. .

  • Thanks to the wonderful person who sent me this kind feedback via email this week! πŸ’™

The POOLaide Webinars in their current form will be ending on Friday, May 22. We've loved connecting with each and every single one of you from all over the world, and we don't want that community to go away forever, so we're already thinking about the form POOLaide 2.0 might take in the future! We hope to release a sneak peek at our final session in two weeks. .

  • Yoni Gottesman. That's either a name you know very well or not at all. Yoni drowned at a summer camp in California in 2005 after being repeatedly (12+ times) dunked by his camp counsellor. One of the most compelling pieces of evidence in the court case is the video footage you can see on the memorial website the family maintains: www.yonigottesman.com

Criminal and civil litigation of fatal and non-fatal drowning incidents are not going away anytime soon. Join us Wednesday to hear from Trevor Sherwood, an expert witness in over 50 drowning cases, discuss procedural failures often made by aquatic facilities. .

  • It's May 1, and we're no closer to swimming pools opening in Alberta. Depressing, right?

What's not depressing is today's speaker, Jason Simituk.  I met Jason a few years ago in the cash cage of a casino (yes, really) where we volunteered for the Alberta Parks & Recreation Association (ARPA) fundraiser. There's nothing like counting $1 million in bills in a 50 ft room for 12 hours to get to know someone really well.

Jason's also someone who I took inspiration from in making the apparently-seamless transition from safe, corporate gig to freestanding consultant. Jason's business, Quantum Recreation, and Katie's business, Lakeview Aquatic Consultants, have collaborated on a number of strategic initiatives for aquatic facilities.

The thing I love about Jason is that he's FUN - yes, really! For today's session he's going to break down how YOU can make compelling arguments for your swimming pools, aquatic programming and service to the community in a way that it's difficult for the dry people to say NO to what you need. This recording is now available on our YouTube channel.

  • Thank you to @swimangelfish for presenting a great session this morning!

My internet was particularly slow - I got kicked out of my own webinar with 280 people several times - so this is the series of faces I made when I came out of the "office" to find my husband livestreaming Sirius XM: πŸ˜ πŸ˜¬πŸ˜³πŸ™„πŸ˜«πŸ™ˆ

  • For those of you who think *I* am passionate about pool operations, allow me to introduce you to Brent Miller aka @poolgeek He makes me look like pools are my hobby. Did I mention he was recently appointed to the Council for the Model Aquatic Health Code (CMAHC)?! .
.
Brent will be leading our pool operations startup session this Friday, March 27. And although we don't know if we're going back to our pools in two weeks or two months, everyone who operates a swimming pool needs to develop a plan to reopen it. The complete recording is now available on our YouTube channel.

  • I took down the sign today! I hung up my Lakeview sign in the garage - my husband's man cave - over two months ago. That was before 1,580 poolies attended 27 live POOLaide Webinars with 35 presenters for 64 + hours and 98,000 (!) minutes of view time on YouTube!

My goal was 250 poolies - and I figured a lot of people I know would show up because they felt bad - so thank you for smashing that goal! Hard work yields results. ❀

This is not goodbye, this is more of a see you later to live webinars and online meetings as there are SO MANY now! We're taking next week to finish & post show notes and video recordings (May 8, 15, 18, 20, 22) before we rest and recalibrate for POOLaide 2.0

Please follow us on Facebook - link in bio!- for sneak peaks and announcements coming in July.

.In this application in Virginia from last fall, someone is meeting the letter of the law (Americans with Disabilities Act requirement to have a lift) but not the spirit or intention of the law (stairs to reach the lift).
