Jodie Aczel

Owner/Director

I took over Little Fish Swim School with my sister, Hayley, in April 2015. I love the business and enjoy being able to provide such an important service to local families. I'm passionate about Little Fish and our wonderful team of Instructors.

I'm Bachelor qualified and my background is as a Marketing Manager and Consultant in the tourism industry and small business. I've got 2 children who attend school locally and have lived around the area for most of my life. My main role is to ensure our customers are happy, children are progressing and overall management of the business. I have my AUSTSWIM Teacher of Swimming and Water Safety so you might see me teaching when we have staff away.

What I love most about what I do: It's wonderful seeing children build a relationship with their teacher, gain confidence in the water, be safe and learn their swimming strokes. I love seeing children start in our baby program and go all the way through to our higher stroke levels. It really is skill that will provide a life-time of enjoyment.

When I’m not in the office you’ll find me: Driving the kids around – isn’t that what mums are for! Seriously though, I do love doing stuff with my children and when I do get a moment to myself I enjoy a bit of shopping, exercising or hanging out with friends. 

My perfect weekend: I love going up the coast and spending the morning at the beach with my family. Followed by a nice lunch out and maybe a glass of wine to top off the afternoon!
