She went on to play Division I Lacrosse at UMBC from 2005-2009 and graduated as a double major in Media Communications and American Studies in 2010. Coach Swift began her coaching career with TLC in 2009 as a head coach. In 2014, she was hired as the administrative assistant to Athletics at The John Carroll School, along with becoming the head coach for Varsity Girls Lacrosse. In her first season, Coach Swift took the team from 9-9 the previous year to 12-5 and a trip to the semifinals of the IAAM A conference, one of the most difficult high school leagues in the country--a feat which earned her recognition as the 2015 Baltimore Sun Coach of the Year.
