Aquatics Coordinator, Rochelle Kelvos: I am proud to say that I have has 24 years of service with the Town overseeing the Aquatics Division. I studied Aquatic Engineering and I am currently a LGI, WSI, AFO, plus a proud member of the Association of Aquatic Professionals. Moreover, I am currently working on my professional designation as an Aquatics Professional AQP. My aquatics team was recognized by Aquatic International Magazine for winning the 2017 Summer Lifeguard Challenge. Additionally, we conducted over 17,000 swim lessons to the children of Davie as well as surrounding areas this past fiscal year. In 2015, with the Fire Chief of Davie, we started and implemented the#SAFERBY4 campaign in the Town of Davie. This campaign started as water safety education program and has grown to be the incentive of some astounding aquatic programs.
Please let us know how we are doing, please email me at [email protected] to share any feedback, questions, or recommendations.
