Lya Pillot, General Manager

Hey you Welcome to SafeSplash!

My name is Lya (lee-ah) and I am your Assistant General Manager at the Aurora/Southlands location. I was born in San Juan, Puerto Rico and I am the daughter of a scuba diver instructor. I was introduced to the water at a very young age and I’ve loved it ever since then. I’ve been in the aquatics business since 2012, it has been the most fun and rewarding career that I’ve decided to pursue. I started my aquatics journey as a Lifeguard at the age of 16 guarding the LEGOLAND Water park. Soon I after jumped into the position of an Aquatics Manager right before the age of 18. Growing up as an athlete has helped me become a great instructor, mentor, and friend to all my students. The SafeSplash team has helped me grow as an instructor and professional over the past year. What I love about SafeSplash is that we love building relationships with our students and families in addition to caring and constantly wanting to provide the best swim lesson experience each time!  

Fun Fact: I am one of the Florida’s 2012 Girls Wrestling State Champions and top 6 in the Florida Swimming District Finals 200 Yard Medley Relay event in 2012.
