April Staff Spotlight: Megan


Tell us a little bit about yourself and your role here at the DAHLC: I am a group fitness instructor here at the DAHLC.  I currently teach aqua, swimming and cycling classes.

I have been instructing at the DAHLC for about seven years.  Prior to this, I was a middle school English teacher for 13 years.  I currently co-coach the Century Girls' Swimming/Diving team with my husband.  We have been coaching in Rochester together for over 20 years.  In my spare time, I love being a mom to our 13-year-old daughter and 9-year-old rescue dog, Henry.  

What is your favorite way to spend your free time? In my free time, I love being active.  I try to spend as much time outside as possible.  I really enjoy reading, non-fiction preferred.  I enjoy the small moments of life ... a good cup of coffee, the sunrise, a brief connection with a friend or stranger.  

Favorite book or movie: Gulp ... Dirty Dancing!  It is a Patrick Swayze thing!  🙂

Favorite Food: Sandwiches.  Any kind, any variety.

Favorite Vacation: I love the beach, and I love swimming in the ocean.  It never, ever gets old for me. 

What is one of your favorite memories from the past year? This past year, I moved my parents to Rochester to live closer to us.  I am grateful that the move went well, and I am grateful for this gift of getting to spend time with them at this stage of life. 

If you were stranded on a deserted island, what three things would you bring? Sunscreen, sandwiches (!) and a comfortable beach chair!

What is one thing most members don’t know about you?  I completed an Ironman in 2017.  It was one of the most physically demanding and mentally challenging goals I have ever completed in my life.  The journey to get to the starting line was probably more impactful than the actual day.  I learned a lot about myself.  🙂
