2021 STAFF



Nicole Harbaruk-Syverson

Hi everyone. My name is Nicole and I’m the pool manager again this year. And I am so happy about that. I love working at the pool with all the young people. They keep me laughing, are creative and I always cherish the feeling of family we have by the end of the season.

My 3 favourite things are travel (I miss this so much), I’m definitely a foodie (I love all kinds ) and friends, family and dogs .

I am looking forward to seeing everyone at pool

Ashley Gartner

Hello everyone With the pool scheduled to open in just 2 weeks (YAY ) I wanted to introduce you to the great staff we have for this upcoming season. I will be the Headguard for the Macklin pool this summer. I grew up living here in Macklin my whole life. In April, I completed my Education degree at the University of Alberta. Interests of mine include traveling, teaching, swimming, engaging in any outdoor activities, and spending time with family and friends. Three favorite things of mine would be: pizza (my favourite food), Christmas (my favourite holiday), and Friends (my favourite TV show). In relation to the pool, I have always enjoyed swimming. I’ve worked at the pool for around 6 years now. I enjoy guarding as well as being a swimming lesson instructor because I love being outside and teaching individuals of any age how to swim. I look forward to this upcoming pool season!

I decided to become a lifeguard because I have always loved to swim as a child and I love being outside in the summer as much as I can!
