Born and raised in South Florida, Ryan grew up in and around water. She started swim lessons as a baby and has loved the water ever since. As an age grouper and teenager, she swam for the Palm Beach Gardens Makos swim team, as well as her high school team. Ryan became a Red Cross certified lifeguard at the age of 15 and has been teaching lessons and coaching since 2016. She went on to attend the University of Miami (Go ‘Canes!), where she majored in film production and creative advertising, and minored in television production. Ryan was the executive producer of her university’s late-night comedy show, which inspired her to move to New York with the goal of becoming a producer in television. She is excited to bring her swim experience and outgoing personality to Imagine!
