Haylee Estey

Pool Manager

Haylee has been involved in aquatic facility management and instruction the past seven years, most recently with Lone Mountain in Bozeman.  She looks forward to bringing her knowledge and well-rounded experience to Riverside Country Club.
 
Haylee recently graduated from Montana State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Management. Spending time in the water isn’t the only thing she’s in to – she enjoys spending time outside with her golden retriever puppy and spending time with family and friends!
 
Haylee has spent the last seven summers at a local pool in Whitehall, MT. She started as a part-time lifeguard and then held the manager role for the past four summers. “It has been an incredible experience building relationships with patrons at the pool and with students.”
 
Before landing in Bozeman in 2014, Haylee graduated from Whitehall High School and then pursued a degree at Montana State University. She has also worked at Lone Mountain Gymnastics and Swim School for the past four years as a swim instructor and administrative assistant. She has built quality relationships with the families and students at Lone Mountain.
 
 “We are excited to have Haylee as part of our Riverside Country Club team.”  Says Mark Amberson the General Manager for Riverside Country Club.  “Haylee brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to us and we are excited about her being part of the Club.  Her enthusiasm for helping people of all ages and particularly children is incredible.”
