Meet Our Team!

Director - Julia HamFull Name:
Julia Ham


Title : Just Julia the Shark

Just Julia the Shark has been teaching swimming since 1999, when she established Hampton Swim School whilst training and competing for Australia. Her love of child development saw her open a land-based program, TumbleTastics, in early 2011, an early learning movement and activity centre.

After many years on the front line of teaching and administration, Julia continues her role of Director working closely with her team to continuously grow, develop and improve the services Hampton Swim School and TumbleTastics delivers to our wider community. Julia’s personal business philosophy is to ‘Nurture, Achieve & Celebrate”, which stands at the forefront of both businesses daily and strategy operations. Julia is mother to 2 young water babies, Ollie and Archer, who she dotes on and fosters their development everyday. If Julia was an animal she would be a Great White Shark – loves her food, swims fast and is grossly misunderstood!
