Today, swim classes are offered for both children and adults, and Jackson resident Laura Uecker has created a unique part-time business that specializes in teaching adults to swim. It’s the age of the Internet, and Uecker has gone high-tech. At her website TheSwimGirl.com clients can look at her schedule and register online to take classes.
Uecker, 35, also has access to an underwater camera and films clients for an additional fee so they can perfect their technique by watching themselves swim. She also edits the video on her home computer. Check out our story in The Clarion-Ledger.
