My name is Natalie Lavoie, I am one of the SafeSplash managers in the Seattle area. I never would have guessed how much swimming has shaped my life and helped me achieve goals.
Making a difference in the lives of other people is my passion in life; the ultimate wellbeing of individuals. In pursuing that passion, I recently graduated from Wayne State University’s (WSU) Masters of Social Work (M.S.W.) program. My ultimate career goal with my degree is to become a school social worker and work with children in a K-8 educational system. My ultimate desire as a school social worker is helping students have a wonderful experience in school such as academic success and strong interpersonal relationships with peers and faculty members. I am passionate about giving back to the community in order to help students and families in general, as well as overcoming other issues such as poverty. In addition to becoming a school social worker, I am passionate about swimming and water safety.
