Hammerhead Coaching Staff

Head Coach:  Beth Ann Zubia


I am a retired Lieutenant Colonel from the United States Air Force.  I served as a Personnel Officer for 16 years after serving as an Enlisted member of a civil engineering unit for 7 years.  I was deployed to Kabul, Afghanistan in 2006 and have been stationed or traveled all over Europe, Japan, the Middle East, Central America and most of the United States during my 23 year career in the Air Force.

I am the proud wife to another Air Force member (Manny) who is currently in the Air Force Reserve and works in the financial arena in Buckhead.  We parent 7 children, with only 3 still living in the home.  They are Marshall, who is 16, Madi, who is 6, and Lili, who is 3.  We moved to Georgia in August of 2015 where we chose to retire after 5 military moves.

Swimming Resume

As a child growing up in New Orleans, we were always around water so it was imperative that we learn to swim.  I had been on and off of swim teams from the age of 8 through high school graduation.

In high school I was certified as a life guard which led to teaching swim lessons and coaching swimming.  Below is a quick look at my coaching roles through the last 30+ years:
