Certified Instructor since 2008
I am a proud mother of two beautiful girls Elizabeth and Emma. I was born and raised in the Central Valley. I left my career in banking management after 14 years to become a stay at home mom.
I was first introduced to ISR when my husband showed me a YouTube clip of ISR. The video was very eye opening for my husband and I, especially since we have a pool in our backyard. When we researched getting our oldest daughter lessons, we realized that the closest instruction site was 1 ½ hours away from us. After much thought and research into the ISR program, I decided that I would bridge the gap and become an instructor so that my community would have this important program available locally. I completed ISR’s intensive training program in San Diego. I had over 60 hours of supervised in-water training and completed rigorous academic course work as is required of all instructors. This included education and testing in child psychology, physiology and behavioral science.
I am dedicated to teaching Self-Rescue (TM) skills to infants and young children in the Central Valley. I feel I can make a difference by providing an added measure of safety for families. This is my opportunity to not only teach survival, but to build their confidence so they too can enjoy swimming and water activities. I want to share the ISR experience with as many families as I can, while also educating our community on drowning prevention and aquatic survival.
