About Ang

Hello All! I am Angela K. De Haan-Lovaas. I was born and raised on a ranch just outside of Bozeman, Montana. I have always had a strong love of all animals and being outdoors. I graduated from High School in 1994 and went directly to Montana State University and obtained a teaching degree in Technology Education with a Health Education minor.

After many years of being in and around the water (swimming and waterskiing) one of my closest friends finally convinced me to get my Lifeguard Certification. Once I completed the course and was hired on at the Bozeman Swim Center and Recreation Department, I became interested in the water fitness classes.

After a short time I was trained to instruct the classes on my own. After doing an initial training in water fitness, I then completed a certification course. Since completing that first course, I have received several other certifications within the aquatic fitness and water professional arenas. My certifications that I have held include:

  • Aquatic Group Fitness Instructor–Exercise Science Alliance
  • Adaptive Fitness Training for Adults with Chronic Conditions–Exercise Science Alliance
  • Aquatic Therapy Certification–Exercise Science Alliance
  • Sports Nutrition Certification–Exercise Science Alliance
  • WaterART Fundamentals Instructor–WaterART Fitness
  • WaterART Senior and Special Populations Certification–WaterART Fitness
  • Lifeguard Instructor–Red Cross
  • Water Safety Instructor–Red Cross
  • CPR/First Aid Instructor–Red Cross

Besides all of my work in and around the water, I enjoy woodworking, welding, riding horse, and just being outdoors in general. Much of my spare time is spent at my family's ranch with my husband.

In the last couple years my priorities have started to change, I have since resigned from my position with the City of Bozeman and have started my own business.  I now work a few hours a week building and updating a couple of individuals' web sites.  The rest of my time is now spent helping my father out on the family ranch.
