I have been swimming ever since I started swimming lessons at 3 years old, and have been working at safesplash since 2015 starting out as a front desk and lifeguard and working my way up to the instructor and now MOD! I am a native to Colorado and the Lone Tree area. I love the weather here as well as the beautiful nature. I am a student at the Metropolitan State University of Denver and pursuing a degree in Business Management. When I'm not working me you can find me exploring downtown Denver or the mountains, hanging out with my family, friends, and dogs, or at a DU hockey game!
Hello! My name is Hannah Watson, and I am so excited to begin my new position as a manager on duty. Originally from a small town in California, I grew up swimming in my backyard nearly every day after school and became fond of my nickname "little fish." In 2012, this "little fish moved" to a much bigger pond here in the Denver Metropolitan area and have discovered so many new things since! I am currently a student at the Metropolitan State University of Denver where I am studying Recreation Management and am so proud to say that my love for exploring the outdoors has translated into my passion for helping people in my community recreate their body, mind, and spirit through the endless leisure activities available to us in Colorado. I have been with SafeSplash for four years now, starting as a lifeguard and now teaching new little fish how to swim in what has become my backyard pool. I am looking forward to continuing to learn and grow with this company and our wonderful community!
