NICHELLE–I started Wet Kat Pool Service, LLC in April of 2000 after spending eleven years in the health and fitness industry. I began my love of pools at age 12, when I got into competitive swimming. I spent time as a lifeguard and swim coach, and one could say, water is mixed with my blood.

 

Originally an east coaster, I am now a happy Oregonian. I believe that it is our responsibility to take care of the less fortunate in our society and to live consciously to help save our planet. In my free time I enjoy all water sports.

I recently started stand up paddle-boarding, but my favorite past times are playing the ukulele and spending time with my family.

 

SHARONSharon is the Operations Manager at Wet Kat Pool Service and has been in the position since 2013. In 2011 she started out as a technician and quickly transitioned into the administrative role of Office Manager by the end of that pool season. At the end of 2012 the growth of Wet Kat presented a need for an Operations Manager and Sharon’s skills, experience, creativity and passion made her the ideal fit for the role.

 To date, she has helped the company support their belief in being environmentally conscious by integrating an electronic system to handle much of the company’s previously paper based admin. She has written and implemented countless new procedures and policies to ensure a system of checks and balances are in place. She continues to dedicate herself to making Wet Kat Pool Service the best company for its customers and employees.
 
Sharon is pursuing her dream of working in the Natural Medicine field and will be starting a Master’s program of Acupuncture at Bastyr University in the fall of 2016. As a retired international athlete, she is extremely passionate about the sport of rugby and currently directs and coaches the Washington State High School Girls All-star program. She loves to be outside exploring the PNW with her partner in crime, her 4 and a half-year-old dog, Billie.

At Wet Kat Pool Service, I am part of the office staff.  With my organizational skills, I try to keep all certifications, registrations, payments and banking functions current and up to date.  I am somewhat of a detail person, so that helps!  I enjoy working with the mostly female Wet Kat staff in a position of responsibility and trust.

I am a yogi, gardener, reader, hiker and lover of all things outdoors (and in Portland, that includes walking in the rain).  I am a transplant to the beautiful Pacific Northwest, but after 13 years,  I know I am definitely home.
