In addition to being an instructor, Shelly Wickerd is our Office Manager. She graduated high school in 2011 and is planning to attend CPCC and to later transfer to UNCC in order to attain a business degree. Shelly, who has been working with children for the past eight years, began working at Charlotte Aquatics in 2013. She has always loved working with children and volunteered to babysit for neighbors, friends and family. Shelly absolutely loves everything to do with water; having grown up in San Diego, California, where beaches and outdoor activities abound. Here in Charlotte, Shelly takes frequent day trips to the beach on her days off. Swimming competitively for nine years and throughout high school created a deep devotion to swimming. Knowing her way around the water has made Shelly very cautious about safety. “I believe that being safe and secure in and around water is one of the most important lessons we can teach young children.” Shelly also enjoys spending time with her friends, family and her dog, Hemet. Freedom Park is one of their favorite places to take long walks and runs together. “I love all that I do here at Charlotte Aquatics, and am very lucky to be a part of something so wonderful!”
