Meet Laura DeLestry
Laura DeLestry has been the manager of the pool at the Eau Claire Golf and Country Club for the past there years. She strives to increase member satisfaction with weekly events and crafts. This past summer her attention has been drawn towards creating a more inclusive atmosphere for all swimming levels and abilities. In doing so she redid the swim lesson program to place an emphasis on the individual rather than skill. This past year, she saw a dramatic increase in swimming abilities and member satisfaction.
In the off season, Laura attends the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire where she is double majoring in Elementary Education and English Education. Laura is also double minoring in Language Arts and American Sign Language. She will be graduating in a year and a half and will then go on to receive her masters in American Sign Language to become a licensed interpreter.
When Laura is not at the country club she enjoys hunting and fishing as well as training for the American Birkebeiner (a 55k cross country ski race) and college rock climbing competitions.
