In 2000, the company I was working for was required to teach all employees CPR. I volunteered for the job, and became a certified instructor through the Red Cross. My coworkers enjoyed my teaching style - even third shift employees did not go to sleep in my classes.
After finding that I have a knack for training, I went on to pursue instruction full time. Since then, I have presented seminars in schools, multinational corporations, and factories; in Washington, D.C., Prince Georges County, MD, Falls Church, VA, Philadelphia, PA and many other towns and cities in between.
This year during a class, one of my students walked toward me and before I knew it he collapsed in my arms. I slowly lowered him to the ground and followed the emergency steps I had been teaching my students. The paramedics were pleased with the care I gave him while waiting for them to arrive.
My classes cover a wide area of topics, including First Aid, Adult, Child, and Infant CPR/AED, Babysitting, Professional Rescuing, HIV Awareness, Conflict Resolution, and Strategic Management.
In order to highlight the importance of Pet First Aid and knowing the correct emergency steps to take, ABC News interviewed a client of Philly CPR Classes and his adorable pets.

On December 1st, 2010 I was recognized with a Ten year service pin and was the only instructor honored with a plaque for outstanding service. The event was held at Voorhes, NJ at The Mansion restaurant. There were about 200 people attending the event.
