Red Cross via YMCA Camp Seafarer

Lifeguard and CPR Instructor

I took on the tremendous responsibility of educating people on how to effectively, safely, and properly save someone's life with tactical skills and techniques. Being a CPR and Lifeguard instructor, I had to be thorough and diligent so that I could allow for these pupils to be well informed, certified and not negligent of potential dangers and proactive with preventing harmful situations. It is important to emphasize the necessity of being calm in stressful, high intensity situations while allowing yourself to think clearly and appropriately. I was able to exude my leadership skills in the classroom and through the students by using my keen creativity skills for new, more effective ways to instruct a life skill that will save lives.
