Our Team

Get to know our team here at Swimtastic Fox Cities!

Mandy Ruys, Owner

I started working at Swimtastic in June of 2000. I started before the facility was even built! It has been a pretty incredible journey along the way! I fell in love with teaching swim lessons and fast forward 19 years later, I am now the proud owner. I am truly passionate about every child learning how to swim. It's the only activity that can save a life and I am lucky enough to be part of thousands of children's swimming journey. Outside of Swimtastic I am a mom of of 2 very active kids who are 11 and 12 years old. We are at a basketball, softball, baseball, football, or volleyball game/tournament every weekend and I love every minute of it! If I am not in a gym or on a field I enjoy going for walks and reading.

Ashley Bossell, Assistant General Manager

I started working at Swimtastic Swim School in 2007 as a Swim Instructor. I fell in love with teaching swim lessons and the connection I was able to make with the students. I was thrilled to be promoted to Office Manager in 2009 and have continued to share my passion with our employees and many families ever since! My drive is knowing that I am making a difference in all of the lives of those that join us at Swimtastic. Outside of work I enjoy time with my family and being active in our community.
