Jen grew up in a competitive swimming environment in Hong Kong, where her main stroke was breaststroke. She has previously coached young swimmers in Hong Kong, Florida and New Zealand, including working with Larissa at Water Lions. Jen is particularly interested in coaching young competitive age group swimmers (8-12 years old) and enjoys their energy, curiosity, and competitiveness. She likes to challenge her swimmers everyday - not just physically but also mentally; helping them see that hard work never goes unrewarded and the importance of working on the little things and the key skills such as turns, underwater work, and starts. Most importantly, she wants her swimmers be proud of their achievements and have fun during training.
Outside of coaching, Jen is a nurse with paediatrics training. She also speaks Cantonese, Mandarin and Spanish.
