About the owner of Pool Pal, Joan Vienot:  "I practically grew up in a swimming pool.  My first job was at the city pool when I was 13, as an aide to a swimming instructor.  I worked 20 hours a week for $1.65 an hour, doing such things as demonstrating the "face float" and hosing the decks.  In the afternoons I played in our little 12' backyard pool and helped my sisters with the upkeep.  I continued working at the city pool every summer, promoting to lifeguard and swimming instructor, and eventually being tasked with management duties.  At the University of Northern Colorado, I obtained degrees in Fine Arts and in Health, Physical Education and Recreation, continuing my employment in aquatics.  I taught adult swimming lessons for the local community college, and I was the "professional" paid victim for the lifeguard training classes at the university.  I coached the girls swim team at a high school where I also taught Art from 1977 to 1980.  In 1980 I moved to Seagrove Beach, Florida, where I managed a commercial pool at a campground and RV park.  In 1983 I began offering my expertise in pool service, and Pool Pal was born.  I took the Certified Pool Operator Course and acquired my license as a Florida Registered Swimming Pool Servicing Contractor.  I continued my professional growth by becoming an instructor of the National Swimming Pool Foundation's Certified Pool Operator course, which I offer several times a year through Pool School Florida, to provide the certification required of public pool operators in Florida."
