Swimming Technician

Having been born and raised in Serbia, I got involved in sports at an early age. Soon enough my passion for swimming was discovered and at the age of 11 I became a vice-champion at State Championship. Throughout my competing career I have won over 250 medals and awards internationally. 

As always being eager to challenge myself I moved into the sport of women’s water polo and won the National Water Polo League in 2008 and International Cup with my hometown club. After starting my dentistry studies at Medical University in Novi Sad and being transferred to WPC Vojvodina my international water polo pursuits started to evolve and I got the chance to gain more experience and play in the international arena.

My teaching and coaching career in water polo and swimming started back in Serbia in 2011 and I have worked for 2 years in Dubai with a top swimming company. I then joined Nord Anglia International School Dubai. The main goal I’m aiming to accomplish is to introduce our students to the world of water polo and together with my knowledge and dedication I want the students to excel in both swimming and water polo in the outstanding facilities at NAS Dubai, surrounded by a great team and splendid atmosphere. I’m more than happy to be a part of the NAS Dubai family!
