Emma Doll has been swimming since she was 6 years old. The late Coach Ed Kelly inspired her to not only be the best she could be at swimming, but in life. Emma swam for Hurricane Swim Club and Northshore High School, was a top contender in the state, named to the All-Metro team, and served as team captain. Emma earned a college scholarship to swim competitively at the University of Arkansas-Little Rock specializing in the sprint freestyle events. During her career at UALR, Emma owns 2 individual school records in the 50 and 100 freestyle, and is a part of all 5 team relay records. Emma believes that the sport of swimming has shaped who she is today, and she wants to be involved in that experience for future athletes. Emma is USA Swimming certified and is excited to be back on the pool deck in a different capacity. She has just recently complete both her NASM Personal Training Certifications and her CrossFit Level I certification! Health and fitness is something Emma became passionate about during college, as training and preventing injury on land is a critical part of getting better in the pool.
Emma just graduated from the University of Arkansas-Little Rock with a degree in Health Science. She is excited to be joining the Lakeside Aquatics staff so she can help swimmers accelerate their swimming while having FUN!
