Bio: I have lived most of my life in Georgia.  I graduated from Berry College in 2005.  I have experience working in both retail and customer service for over 10 years now and I really enjoy it!  I love meeting and getting to know new people who love the excitement of learning.  Watching children learn how to swim always brightens my day. I am very happy to be a part of the staff at ASA.

StaceyStacey Buras | Swim Administrator

Bio: I was a swim instructor for 2 years, teaching children ages 5-13. I attended Kennesaw State University, and eventually pursued acting at Second City in Chicago. I love the energy that kids have, and their willingness and courage to try new things. I love to write, in my free time I write for sketch teams in Atlanta at various comedy clubs.

StefanStefan Williams | Swim Administrator

Bio: I grew up in Jamaica so I was constantly around water. Most of my holidays I spent at the beach or river. I have a Bachelors of Science degree from Oglethorpe University. When I was younger, my parents had a difficult time getting me out of the pool. My favorite thing about helping kids learn to swim is the fact that I can help them develop a new skill. My hobbies outside of ASA include: watching or playing soccer, volunteering at non-profit organizations, and photography.

SydneySydney Phlegar | Swim Administrator

Bio:  I was first introduced to swimming in 2007 by using water aerobics as a way to rehabilitate my core muscles after a sports-related injury. I have lived in Cobb County for the majority of my life; graduating from Allatoona High School in 2012. I am on track to graduate from Chattahoochee Tech in December 02 2018 with a degree in Business Technology. Swimming is a great way to stay in shape and build muscle throughout the body. Interacting with children within the community is something I have always done in my free time. Outside of ASA I enjoy paddle-boarding, kayaking and hiking.
