Blog Author: Diane DeLorenzo | As the Aquatic Manager, I will be responsible for overseeing the operation of the Hunt Club Park Aquatic Center, FitNation Gurnee's Indoor Pool, Swim School at Fitnation, along with swim lessons indoors at Warren High School and outdoors at the Aquatic Center.  I am very excited about working with Gurnee's talented recreation team to continue to build programs. The Gurnee Park District aquatics team will continue to stay focused on high safety standards and enhance the overall facility experience for Gurnee Park District families.

At 15 years old, I unknowingly started my career path as a lifeguard for the Des Plaines Park District. I LOVED being around a pool and more importantly, teaching others how to be safe and responsible in aquatic environments. From there, I decided to attend Western Illinois University, where I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Recreation, Parks and Tourism Administration and Physical Education (K-12). GO LEATHERNECKS! I began my career with the Hoffman Estates Park District and have 20 + years of experience working for other local park districts, hotels, resorts and YMCA.

My husband and I live in Round Lake with our 2 dogs, Bella and Bear. In our free time we love to explore the art of cooking, trying recipes from all over the world.
