Agnes C. Davis is a renaissance woman with a mission to inspire, empower and inform. She is a unique individual who has lived through the seasons of life and weathered a few harsh winters along the way, both personally and professionally. Now in her mid-50’s, Ms. Davis has reinvented herself and is reveling in the spring of her rebirth. She has successfully launched a swim company, now in its 9th year, and is enjoying her role as a health and wellness advocate.
Davis is the CEO of swim swim swim I SAY, a successful sports and recreational business with several dedicated staffers, servicing over 100 clients. As a cardiovascular perfusionist at a top New York City hospital, she has worked alongside some of New York’s top surgeons including Dr. Mehmet Oz, managing the heart/lung machine during open heart surgery.
“Having a full-time job on a cardiac surgical team, I know the importance of putting one’s self as a priority. I have dedicated myself to total health and fitness by staying active, swimming, working out, eating healthy and getting my mind right. My gift is teaching wellness and courage. A great accomplishment is when I see a student who had a fear of water jump into the pool; or an adult, who once complained of achy joints, now in the pool getting fit and active. That’s good stuff,” says Agnes.
Davis’ passion as an advocate for health, wellness and swimming, has been lauded and featured in national platforms, such as: Associated Press, USA Today, WBLS-FM Steve Harvey Morning Show, NBC Weekend Today, ABC News, Yahoo Parenting, Miami Herald, San Francisco Chronicle, Jones.com, The Network Journal, Washington Post, as well as Black Enterprise, Crain’s New York Stories, and Sirius XM Radio.
