How did you get started teaching?
I was a competitive gymnast from the age of 6-18. I then started coaching and had to take a CPR/First aid class to become a coach. During that class I discovered a love for emergency care and this led me to eventually become a paramedic. While working as a paramedic I started to notice a difference in survival rates when a lay provider started emergency care. I then decided to combine my college education with my EMS experience and education. I started teaching first and and CPR in 2004 and have loved teaching every day.
What types of students have you worked with?
I have taught:
Family members of new babies
Describe a recent event you are fond of.
I am proud that I am able to teach life saving skills. I teach people how to save lives or loved ones or complete strangers. I get satisfaction from the fact of knowing that I have helped to make this country/world/community a safer place. I breathe easier knowing that there are thousands of people who have learned life saving skills by attending my classes. I am proud that teaching a class may eventually safe a life and given loved ones the gift of life.
What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?
Make sure you hire someone who has actually worked in the medical field and performed CPR not someone who took a CPR class then became an instructor. The knowledge that someone with real world emergency experience can bring goes byond the mechanics of performing CPR and or first aid. We know the logistics of the 911 system. We know the apprehension you will feel and the panic that will come with performing these interventions because we have been there.
