MINNESOTA // KELSEA SMITH // @jolynmidwest
Ever since my parents threw me in a pool at age 1, I’ve had a connection to life in the water and that grew into the life of a swimmer. My first two years of college swimming I was at Minnesota State. Sick and tired of freezing my butt off, I moved to Florida and finished my collegiate career swimming for the Nova Sharks. I loved living by the beach, practicing outside every day, and a 98% chance of sun ;) Minnesota-born with a beachy soul, I’ve been told many times that I don't look like I belong in the land of 10,000 lakes, but rather in a coastal state with lots of sun, sand, and waves. Outside of the water, I love to run, hike, and go for walks, enjoying the great outdoors!
It was by divine design that Jolyn came into my life. We took our athletes to Hawaii for their training trip and had left for a day on the beach. Over an hour away from our hotel I realized I had forgotten my suit. One of the girls said I could use her extra suit but said “it’s not your typical bikini”. I immediately fell in love and haven't worn anything but Jolyn since. Jolyn has everything I want in a suit, fun, cute, bold, quality, and an athletic edge. So happy and blessed to work with an amazing team and brand that I will always adore!
