Shane and Jenny Whildin - Owners
As the proud new owners of Simply Swimming, Shane and Jenny are no strangers to the world of swimming………
Shane has been swimming since he was 5 years old and ultimately retired from competition by graduating from the University of Missouri. Moving on, from the pool, he spent the next 11 years on the pool deck as a swim coach where he landed at Stanford University coaching the Women’s team and finally at University of Wisconsin in Madison. All of this exposure to the various aspects of swimming motivated him to move to the retail business side and Speedo USA where he was one of their top sales reps selling to colleges ad universities all over the country.
Jenny, Shane’s wife and co-owner of the business, is no stranger to the swimming world either. Both Jenny’s father and brother swam competitively. Although she swam in high school Jenny moved out of the water and after college, Jenny managed several medical practices during her “before kids” life.
Both Jenny and Shane bring a huge amount exposure in all facets needed to launch into the retail arena of swimming. With both Shane and Jenny’s backgrounds fully evolved, they took the natural next step and acquired Simply Swimming
Shane and Jenny have three children; Cash (4), Shay (7) and Stella (12). Both girls have ventured into the swimming world and Stella swims competitively year round.
