 Kris Carson
Senior/Gold & Administrative Coach

I started my swimming career at the age of 7 with the Naperville Park District swimming organization. I expanded my swimming to the Naperville YMCA swim team, and later switched to the Academy Bullets. I swam and played water polo at Waubonsie Valley high school, and went on to play water polo at Baylor University in Texas. After graduating high school, I began my coaching career at White Eagle in Naperville (NPD swim team) and started with Express at the age of 22. I have been an assistant for the Downers Grove North girls team for 10 seasons now, and was with the boys for 3 seasons. I was the head coach of the Nazareth Academy girls for 2 seasons before the school cut swimming. I have also coached water polo at Oak Park-River Forest high school. I have also had the priviledge to work the swim camps at Auburn University for 3 summers where I was able to work side by side with and learn from the best in the swimming world! I am also currently the head coach for the Breckenridge Breakers in Naperville in the summers. I currently work at Downers Grove North as the pool supervisor. When I'm not at the pool, I fill my time selling Tastefully Simple, volunteering in my church nursery on Sunday mornings and am one of the leaders of Stephen Ministry at my church. I have also recently gone back to school to get my teaching certificate in Special Education to fulfill my dream of becoming a high school Special Ed. teacher.

Kira Murphy
Silver Coach

I have been a competitive swimmer since age 8. I began swimming for Express, in the teams first season, at age 11, and my career with Express continued through high school. I attended Downers Grove North High School, where I was a 4 year varsity team member and 3 time sate qualifier. I went on to play division I water polo at Marist College, in New York. I continue to have an active swimming career competing in Master's meets and open water swims. My favorite events are 50/100 free and 50/100 back and I never turn down a chance to be in a relay! My coaching career began with Express my senior year of high school, continuing summers during college. Since 2009 I have been coaching Express year round. In the past 8 years with Express I have coached all age group levels from Super Squad to Gold, but have been really enjoying the past few years coaching the Silver groups
. I also have my master's in art therapy and currently practice at a therapeutic day school in the northern suburbs.
