Kari Ottosen

My name is Kari Ottosen. I have lived in Sahuarita since 2004 with my husband, 3 kids, and Brody, our golden retriever.

I came to believe in ISR after our youngest daughter and son went through the program. I was so amazed by the skills they learned that I knew I wanted to become an instructor to help bring these skills to as many families as possible.

When I’m not teaching ISR, you’ll find me at the pool helping with my kids swim team. Away from the pool I enjoy spending time with my family, baking (especially cheesecakes), going to my kids swim meets and other sporting events, working out, and going for runs with Brody.

There are several conditions that may preclude a lesson on any given day. The most common among those are vomiting and/or diarrhea during the last 24 hours, a fever of 100 degrees or higher during the last 24 hours or eye discharge during the last 48 hours.
