My name is Jenna Klepper, AKA Mermaid Azora. I am the owner and founder of Mermaid Azora, LLC. I have been a mermaid and overall swim enthusiast who has taught swimming since 2004! My current qualifications include: American Red Cross: Water Safety Instructor, Adult, Child, and Infant CPR Instructor, AED & O2 Administration, and Preventing Disease Transmission. I enjoy the outdoors, but mostly love being in the water; race swimming, synchronized swimming, water polo, triathlons, scuba diving, snorkeling, free diving, mermaiding and any other aquatic related activity! I was a teacher for 10 years, ranging from pre-school age to 8th graders with special needs.

Mermaid Azora Swim Lesson Key Principles:
Safety- Living so close to the water, safety is our number one priority. We want to make sure that you and your family are safe in and around the water at all times.Our instructors are all trained in how to respond to an emergency, should one ever arise. Our instructors teach lessons in a safe way and promote safety throughout every swimming level to help keep all swimmers educated in case of an emergency.
Fun-After safety, our biggest goal is to make lessons fun! We want our swimmers to look forward to lessons and enjoy spending time in the water with and without their instructor. We believe that the more fun the lesson, the more eager a student is to learn; therefore, a student will learn quicker. We want to make everyone a mermaid like us!
Swimming- Our instructors have a long and strong background in swimming themselves. We believe that safe swimming as well as technique are equally important when enjoying the life-long sport of swimming. Our instructors develop technique while teaching water safety in a fun way. We want to get our swimmers just as excited about swimming, safety, fitness, and health as much as we are!
