Head coach of Swimsmooth Singapore, Merle Talviste, only switched to sports as a career later in life. She was a landscape architect previously, doing city and regional planning, and her job took her to Dubai.

Always armed with a love for swimming, Merle found like-minded friends in swimming in Dubai who then got her into the sport of triathlon. It was also during her time there that she started considering a career switch to become a swim coach.

Merle started her first swim squad in Dubai before moving to Singapore, but she has something bigger in the works now.
