Chloe MalikotsisManager

Hi Elm Park! My name is Chloe and I will be back at Elm for my fifth summer as Manager. I am currently finishing my first year at Georgetown University in Washington D.C. where I am completing my undergraduate degree in business. I swam competitively for over 10 years at DDO as well as in the US and spent my summers at outdoor pools for as long as I can remember. When I am not at the pool, I like running, spending time with friends and family and baking. I am anxiously counting down the days until summer. I can’t wait to see everyone again and make this the best summer yet!

Hi Elm Park! My name is Xavier, the upcoming summer will be my 5th summer at the pool, and I cannot wait. This summer, I will be an assistant manager. I just finished my first semester of Concordia University, where I am studying urbanization and political science. From December to May I plan on taking the semester off to work in the COVID-19 vaccination campaign. I have been a water polo player for 8 years now and I hope we get to play some this summer. I can’t wait to get back outside and see all of you!
