Elizabeth is a junior at Dedham High School. She is an American Red Cross certified lifeguard and swim instructor. In elementary and middle school, Elizabeth took swim lessons and joined her first swim team at the Rec Plex in the summer. She's been swimming competitively year round ever since and is now a varsity swimmer for Dedham High. Because she was inspired by the teenage instructors when she was a kid at the Plex, Elizabeth came back to lifeguard and teach lessons over the summer. Her goal for the summer is to inspire and motivate young swimmers the same way Rec Plex instructors did with her six summers ago. Outside of working at BC, Elizabeth is captain of her school's debate team, involved in YMCA Youth & Government and competes nationally in mock trial.
