Rebecca grew up in Southern California and learned to swim without her floaties at the age of five. Her love for the water really took hold ten years later, during her freshman year at Great Oak High School, when she joined the swim and water polo teams. Between practices, meets, games, and ocean swims, Rebecca practically became a mermaid! After graduating, she moved to New York City and discovered Imagine while swimming laps at the BMCC pool. Currently, she is completing her general ed at BMCC and plans to transfer to NYU, where she intends to major in religious studies. Outside of the water, Rebecca enjoys traveling, going to school, and exploring the city. She looks forward to sharing her love for the water and aquatic sports with all her students.
