Annemarie Salama-Siroishka – Manager

Hey Elm Park! My name is Annemarie and I will be managing Elm Park for summer 2018. I grew up at Windermere in ALPS, but this is going to be my fourth summer working at Elm. I love being a part of the Elm family and I do not see myself working anywhere else. I am currently finishing up my second year of Nursing at John Abbott College and I am enjoying every moment of it! I am also on the John Abbott synchro team and a captain of the John Abbott swim team. On top of working at Elm, I will be volunteering as NAA VP synchro for my second summer. I was a part of the DDO synchro club for over 7 years and swam as an elite national athlete for 3 years. I really enjoy being involved, therefore, while I am not studying, I try to balance sports, work and hanging out with family and friends. I am really looking forward to seeing you all this summer. Let’s make it the best one yet!
