Catching up with TBAY Alum Chelsea (Nauta) Colwill


Even though she’s been away from competitive swimming for a few years now, Chelsea Nauta Colwill still gets her competitive fix on a daily basis.

But instead of in the pool, she fulfills her natural desire in her new position as a healthcare solutions provider for Greenway Health in Tampa, Fla., her hometown.

It’s all part of her innate desire to be the best at whatever she does.

“I really like winning; some people say they hate losing, but I think winning drove me in swimming,” she said. “In my profession now, I compete with my colleagues all the time, and I realize that I like the winning part more than the reward of winning…even though financial compensation is nice, too.”

In addition to her professional life, Colwill married two-time U.S. Olympic diver Chris Colwill last May. The two met while both living and training at the University of Georgia, where they were both All-Americans.

Colwill enjoyed a successful swimming career with the Bulldogs, and also made the U.S. National team. Internationally, she was part of the 2011 World University Games Team and 2011 Pan American Games Team. She won gold in the 800m free relay at WUGs and Pan Ams, and a silver medal in the 200m free at Pan Ams.
