Swim Lesson Program Director
Angie Baker was born and raised on the pool decks of Redding and began swimming competitively at the age of 6. She has always had a love for aquatics and is excited to share that passion with her Redding community. In 2003, Angie moved to Arcata for college; where she earned a B.S. in Kinesiology at Humboldt State University and met her husband, Joe (at the pool).
While attending school, she worked as the Head Age Group Coach for the Humboldt Swim Club and a Swim Lessons Supervisor for the Arcata Community Pool. From there, Angie interned as a P.E. Teacher at The International School Villa Amalienhof in Berlin, Germany. She and her husband then moved to San Diego in 2010; where Angie was the Head Coach for Coronado Navy Swim Association and taught private lessons for 2 years.
She and her husband have slowly been making their way back north, from the Bay Area to Chico; where Angie continued coaching and teaching swimming. Angie and her husband moved to Redding in September of 2015 with their new little boy, Che, to settle down and raise a family. She is looking forward to being a part of the SOAR Team and thrilled to bring her swimming expertise and enthusiasm to Sun Oaks.
Angie’s personal motto is, “Attitude is Everything.” She believes that with a positive attitude and a strong work ethic, you can accomplish your goals. Stop by and say hi to Angie on the pool deck!
