I haven’t been this excited about an issue of the magazine in awhile. This is our second iteration of what we’re calling our “Power Women” feature where we highlight some of the amazing women leaders in our industry. It was such a hit last year that we’ll probably do it every year until you beg me to stop.
We also have a great article on commercial pool service featuring Precision Aquatics from San Diego. I didn’t write this article — those kudos go to Seraine Page — but Dustin and the guys from Precision were kind enough to meet up and show me around some of the properties they care for. I learned a ton, and honestly, they were fun to spend time with.
Finally, I’m thrilled to introduce Bethany Branscum as managing editor. She has already kicked our editorial team into high gear and is one of the reasons why I’m so happy with how this issue turned out. Additionally, our art director, Brittany Alloway, doesn’t often get a lot of public recognition, but these pages also look fantastic thanks to her. And not to forget — we’ve also added a new copy editor, Kaleigh Carroll. Can you tell we’ve been busy?
That being said, this issue feels like a fantastic way to start off the 2023 pool season. Best of luck, and we’ll see you on the other side.

P.S. I was so humbled by all the kind words that people had for the magazine when we were at The Western Pool & Spa Show. Thank you so much for all the love and support!
