Jacqueline (call her Jackie) has been swimming with CIBBOWS since 2014, and has served on the board of directors since 2016. A late bloomer to marathon swimming, she has completed swims ranging from 1 mile to nearly 16 miles. She is lucky enough to spend weekends out at the beach where her childhood bedroom is fondly known as “the cabana”.

A lifelong ocean frolicker  and noncompetitive swimmer, Mary Ellen plunged in to her first open water swim in the Hudson in 2003, and was hooked. She attended a CIBBOWS swim clinic in 2013 and has been a member since then, finding that the camaraderie and support of CIBBOWS multiplies the joy.  Mary Ellen holds a WOWSA Open Water Swimming Coaches Certification.
