Meet our staff

Lifeguarding and cashiering at the swim center was my first job as a sophomore in High School. My employment continued for 8 years getting me through college at the University of Nevada, Reno where I graduated with my BS degree in Human and Community Sciences. I went on to work in other professions, lived in other states, until I chose to return to Douglas, the community I was raised in. I was at a point in my life where I wanted to “give back” to the community that gave so much to me and my family. I was elected to the Board of Trustees for the East Fork Swimming Pool District and served for 3.5 years until resigning to apply for the Assistant Director position and now serve as the Director. I have certifications in aquatic risk management, school of executive leadership, pool operations, lifeguarding, CPR, AED and Oxygen use. I am also a graduate of “Leadership Douglas County” class of 2015. I am blessed to be a part of a profession and facility that provides so much to our community. Through the swim center, I am given the opportunity to work with all ages, be part of an amazing team of professionals and watch what incredible healing occurs around water and the sport of swimming for our patrons. We are “Your Community Pool.”

Office Administrator/Cashier Supervisor

I became a lifeguard in 1996, and started working at CVSC in 1999. In 2001 became Aquatic Specialist and 2006 became a full time Aquatic Supervisor. I am certified as an EMT, Lifeguard Instructor, Certified Pool Operator, Water Fitness Instructor, and a United States Swim Coach. I enjoy working with the public, teaching swimming at all levels and abilities, teaching lifeguards, aquatic programing, and working with our amazing staff.

Sarah Davenport
Aquatic Supervisor EMT

I have worked at the Carson Valley Swim Center seasonally for over 10 years starting in 2006. In my time here I have worked as a swim instructor, lifeguard, cashier, maintenance, senior guard and now aquatic supervisor. This has allowed me to have an extensive knowledge of the ins and outs of the entire facility. The Carson Valley Swim Center is a place that I have grown up at, and I'm happy that I can give back to it. I have obtained my bachelor's degree in cell biology and neuroscience, and I hope to one day be able to use my knowledge to better help people.
