Rebekah Craig
Founder, Executive Director, Lead Instructor

Rebekah started the Aqua Angels swim program in the summer of 2021 with a cohort of 40+ adult swimmers. What started as weekly swim lessons became a movement. In 2022, Rebekah turned the Aqua Angels program into a non-profit in order to build a community-driven business that gives back and ensures everyone has access to life-saving water skills.
