New to the team this year is head coach Jen Carullo. A resident of Washington Township since 2014, she is excited to get involved in her community and share her love of swimming. Coach Jen began her coaching career as Head Coach of Williamstown High School’s Swimming and Diving Team from 2011-2014. In that time, she more than tripled team membership and brought the team to a winning record while coaching two athletes to the NJSIAA Diving Championships in 2012 and 2013. Coach Jen is more formally known as Mrs. Carullo at WHS where she is a social studies teacher and the Class of 2018 co-advisor.
As a swimmer, Coach Jen helped to create the Oakcrest High School Swimming and Diving Team during her freshman year of high school. She went on to eventually become the captain of that team where she specialized in breastroke and freestyle. In the summer, Coach Jen swam for the Mays Landing Mantas (now the Mays Landing Mariners) until 2002.
Growing up by the beach and a self-proclaimed “fish out of water,” Coach Jen wants to instill a sense of camaraderie and love of swimming that helps to build strong and confident young people. According to her, “our children are our greatest resource, we owe them the very best of what this world has to offer.” She believes she can accomplish this goal by being a positive influence and guiding force for the Greenwood Park Frogs.
