Please join us in welcoming Gertrude Suhajda, our new YMCA Aquatic Director.
Gert has a passion for developing high-quality aquatics programs and teaching lifesaving swimming skills to children and adults. She comes to us with more than 10 years of comprehensive aquatics, customer service and management experience.
Gert has a fun, outgoing personality and is a strong relationship builder and leader. She’s excited to work with her team of aquatics staff to deliver an incredible experience to Y swim lesson participants, members and guests.
Outside of aquatics, Gert enjoys scrapbooking, art, singing in her church’s worship band and spending time with family. She and her husband have lived in the Lake Geneva area for more than 12 years. They currently reside in Como with their two children and are gearing up to host their seventh foreign exchange student starting in August.
Please say hi to Gert the next time you're at the pool. We are very blessed to have her on the Y team.
