I have seen how seconds count in an emergency after being in the Fire/EMS services for over 25 years. Coupling that with my passion for teaching and helping people led me to start teaching CPR & First Aid.

My method is a hands-on approach to training. I believe in the learn, do, teach, and then master philosophy. Knowing everyone has a real-life experience they bring and using it to help form their classroom experience.
