Founder (& Development)

I’m the founder and lead developer of YourPool. I love playing volleyball in my pool with my two kids Ella and Nelson. My kids are pretty good at it, but I’m still the king of the pool.

I also like to relax in my pool – it’s a great way to escape the Texas heat. I was a failed collage swimmer, but that didn’t stop me from going pro at chillaxing.

Swimmer (& Content)

Hi, I’m Christine. I’m a swimmer and the Lead Editor of YourPool. I’ve been working with content for as long as I can remember, and I really enjoy finding inspiration for our readers. Right now, I’m living in a small pool (literally), but my dream is to have a complete oasis one day. Stay tuned—I’ll make it happen!

Inflatable Flamingo (& Content)

Hi! I’m Kate and I love spending time in the pool. In fact, I’ve never really been talented at anything, a part from finding ways of spending as much time as possible on inflatable things in a pool. So I guess that’s a talent? Swimming is one of my favorite mother-daughter activities. We can both get some exercise and spend some quality time together!
