Hi, I’m Ara. I’ve been life guarding for about a year now. Ever since I received my guarding certificate, I joined the UCLA recreation center, and have been life guarding there ever since. Aside from life guarding, I’ve always wanted to teach kids how to swim, for that reason I’ve been enrolled in the WSI class, and will be getting my certificate in about a month. To me, the most important part of life guarding is for swimmers to have a great time in the pool. And to that, I’ll be there to keep things safe. My first ever rescue was when I was seven, I managed to lift my two year old sister from under water 🙂 Way to go Ara!

Ever since a child I was always in the water. Being born in urban New York City my mother wanted me to learn how to swim. After completing all the learn to swim program levels, I decided to push myself further and become a lifeguard. Though I enjoy guarding, however my heart remains primarily as an instructor. Being able to positively change a child’s life, give them confidence in and out of the water is priceless. These are all things I wish to instill in my students, as well as my own son.
Being a lifeguard has been one of the most exciting jobs I’ve had in my life. Not only because it is a great responsibility but as well for the fun. A good lifeguard should always stand for safety, fun and being a good role model. All of which I can I promise to uphold.

Hi, I am Blake Brandley. My love for the water started with being a Jr. Lifeguard where I learned many things about the ocean, water safety, rescue and how fun water sports and activities are as long as everyone is safe! I play competitive water polo and am in the pool almost everyday swimming with Rancho San Dieguito Swim Team. I love to spend free time at the beach and on the lake in Lake Arrowhead with my family.

I have been lifeguarding for about a year now. My intention for guarding is to help create an environment that is the most fun, and safe, it can possibly be. My favorite part of lifeguarding would have to be seeing how much fun everyone is having in the pool on a hot summer day! Fun fact about myself: I swam for 10 years of my life, and hold a record in the 200 freestyle relay at my high school!
I serve the Houston communities of Sugar Land, Katy/Cinco Ranch, Pearland, and Bellaire, among others
HAPPY SWIMMERS BREATH OF LIFE AWARD RECIPIENT In July of 2017, Beth is credited with saving an adult swimmer at a pool party who went unconscious in the pool, and needed CPR for 10 minutes. Our deep gratitude to Beth and her fine service.
I’ve spent the past 8 years planning and supervising pool parties for children. This is my 1st summer as a certified lifeguard!
When lifeguarding, Safety is always first. I enjoy supervising events and watching people smile, laugh and play! I grew up in Florida and know that this type of environment is good for the soul and spirit. Many years I’d spend water skiing on the lake, surfing in the ocean or snorkeling at the springs. When I am not lifeguarding an event I can be found at the creek, the waterfall or participating in a water aerobics class. I also enjoy lap swimming and listening to my I-Pod at the Aquatic Center. Being around people and water is so natural for me!
I serve the Inland Empire and Orange County communities of Fontana, Redlands, Rancho Cucamonga, Pasadena, Upland, and Glendora, among others.
Swim Instructor Bio: Hello! I’ve been teaching for 8 years now and I absolutely love the water. It’s a great way to get in shape, cool off, chill out, or play around in. I also think it’s an important and valuable life skill to understand how to navigate our aquatic environment, that’s why I like to focus on water safety in my swim lessons. Fun Fact: I was raised at a pool, so it feels like my second home. It would be a pleasure to teach any and all levels.
Lifeguard Bio: Hello, Bria here, your friendly neighborhood lifeguard! With six years experience I’d like to say that I am well rehearsed in safety, prevention, and recognition. I’m a super sunscreen advocate, and I can’t get enough of that h2o – stay hydrated my friends!

I swam competitively for 15 years of my life. I started teaching swim lessons 6 years ago. I am currently working as a lifeguard at Pierce College and teaching swim lessons there as well. I also coach CCAT swim team at Pierce College. I like teaching swim lessons because I get great gratification out of seeing progress in my students and I love working with people. A fun fact about me is that I speak Spanish.
I started lifeguarding for private events 5 years ago. I began doing it on my own and when I was old enough, I applied to work for companies. Three and a half years ago, I started lifeguarding at Pierce College. I like lifeguarding events because you get to meet new people (Sometimes famous) and usually the events are very cool and exciting.
Hi I’m Brittany Woods and I’ve been lifeguarding for four years during the summer in the Town of Greenwich. I’ve also guarded at private parties and I enjoy lifeguarding and will continue to re-certify myself because of the joy I get from this job.

I will always provide a safe, fun, and family environment to our clients.
I serve the Las Vegas communities of Las Vegas proper or Norfolk va after july
My life guarding experience started when I was just in high school. At first I was doing it for extra money so my intention was to get paid, now I take a genuine interest in the patrons of any pool whether I’m guarding or not; my goal is to make sure everyone is safe and most of all having fun and enjoying the pools’ environment. And that’s what I enjoy most because my life guarding experience now is better because I’m not worried about getting paid I’m worried about the people at the pool first then everything else will take care of itself.
Fun fact about me is I want to do a lot of things as a career so while I want to be a pool operator one day and own my own Pool Company I also want to be a producer and make beats for musicians and artists while also having a few artists skills myself. Obviously, when I was in high school, I thought I would be an NBA player when it was all said and done so I definitely dream a lot, even now as an adult.
I serve the Atlanta communities of Decatur, Atlanta proper, Covington, & Brookhaven
Hi I’m Bryan, and I have been guarding for one year. I was always in the water when I was younger, not coming in till the sun went down. Lifeguarding is a passion for me since I always love being near the water. I really enjoy paddle boarding as I feel like it helps me clear my mind when I’m out there gazing at the water. I plan to go to medical school and be a psychiatrist. I am currently trying to learn German and Russian as well as computer programming.

I have spent two summers working for the City of Grapevine as an outdoor lifeguard, but after going off to Baylor University my summer lifeguarding days are now with Happy Swimmers. Summer is my favorite season and that is why I love my job: I get to spend time out in the sun while providing a safe place for those in the pool wanting to enjoy the summer as well. I used to and still occasionally do babysit, which can at times have some of those same responsibilities that tie into what is expected of me as a lifeguard. On a random note, I love to draw, paint, dance, sing(if no one can hear me), take scenic hikes, and I am also a cheerleader for Baylor- Sic ‘Em! So, that’s just a little about me.and have a great day!

I worked as an Assistant Aquatic Director for about a year, and now that I am not working full-time around a pool, I like to fit in guarding and teaching lessons as much as possible.

For the last 5 years I have been a professional lifeguard and athlete in the US Lifeguard Association. My Favorite aspect of teaching, is to help others acquire new skills. I love being active.
Welcome Chandler, we’re happy to have you!
Hello!, I am currently a Swim Instructor with U.S.A. Pools and it has been an honor working with them for almost 2 years and going strong. Therefore, I love teaching swimming lessons not only from 1 year old all the way to adults but from people that are disabled. I love seeing a person smile and seeing their enjoy after the lesson is done!.
It has been a pleasure being a Lifeguard for almost 6 years and going on for 7, I have been a competitive swimmer for 4 years. Therefore, being in the water is something that it’s relaxing and calming. I think as a lifeguard, I love being someone that keeps an eye out for people that are in need for a help or something to keep a “watch out” for. I would say I am very humorous guy that loves to tell jokes and have a good time that is the most important. To enjoy life and have a smile on your face!.!

Chelsea has now become a Lifeguard Instructor with Happy Swimmers and is entering nursing school in San Diego this fall.

Hi! My name is Chloe and I’ve been lifeguarding since the spring of 2016. My intention in guarding is to maintain a safe swimming environment where everyone is comfortable and confident. I enjoy lifeguarding because it is a service I can share with many people to improve the quality of their swimming or event experience. I became interested in lifeguarding because I was a competitive diver from ages 8-21 and saw how important it was to always be aware of your surroundings as you can never predict what is going to happen!

Swim Instructor Bio:
Teaching swim lessons is rewarding because you are essentially saving a kid’s life by teaching them how to be safe in and around the water. Nothing is better than seeing a child progress over a short amount of time from being a non-swimmer to a proficient swimmer. I have 12+ years of competitive swimming underneath my belt and have many tools to work with children of all ages and abilities to teach them how to become better swimmers themselves. In my spare time I like to go to the beach and surf, because I can’t stay away from water!
I have been lifeguarding for the past 4 years at many different locations throughout the Orange County area, and for the college that I attend. My experiences as a lifeguard and a collegiate swimmer have taught me to notice which kids are strong swimmers and which kids are not, that way I am able to keep a closer watch on those that are not as strong of swimmers. While lifeguarding I remain focused and on high alert at all times to be ready for anything. I have experience lifeguarding busy public pools and watching kids of all ages.
Common areas I serve: La Palma, Cerritos, Cypress, Lakewood, Long Beach, Los Alamitos, Buena Park, Anaheim areas
Hi, my name is Chris Perks. I’ve been swimming competitively for 9 years and have 2 years lifeguarding experience with CPR, AED, and first-aid certification.
I love ending my day at work knowing I created a safe and enjoyable pool environment. I have lifeguarded at various sized parties (even exceeding over 120 swimmers) and a wide variety of events. I believe a great lifeguard realizes the situation before it happens and takes action to prevent any situation from getting worse.
My composure under stress and observance resulted in the 5 rescues I had my first week as a guard (including saving 2 toddlers at once)!
I serve the Austin communities of Round Rock, Austin, Cedar Park, Leander, among others.

For questions up to making your booking, use the contact form for our owner, Jenn. Have a happy and safe party! Christina
Event Lifeguard Bio: From my first big swim in the Pacific, and subsequent pummeling from an unexpected wave, I have loved lifeguards. I became a Jr. Lifeguard at age 7 after my unfortunate tossing in the white water, and began to understand the importance of water safety. The foundational learning of this program gave me the passion for ocean and pool awareness I have today. During my formative years, I began to play water polo and lifeguard after practice for our school’s younger swimmers. I continued to play competitively in college and became a Jr. Guard Instructor as well as an Ocean Lifeguard. My love of the water has stayed with me even when I became a Zookeeper after earning my bachelor’s, where I swam for exercise. The observational skills and preventative efforts I practiced daily when caring for Orangutans and Harbor Seals helped maintain my lifeguarding prowess. When I became a researcher of Orangutans in Indonesia and began my graduate schooling, I knew event lifeguarding would be a great way to support my education while honing my observational techniques. Scanning the trees for primate behaviors is perfect practice for scanning the water area for potentially distressed swimmers and vice versa. I love all primates, humans included, and I will work hard to keep all of them safe and happy- inside the water and out!
Advanced certifications: Open Water Lifeguard Experience, Scuba cert
Swim Instructor Bio:
15+ years experience teaching swimming! Christina generally serves Santa Monica and the Westside, from the Ocean to West Hollywood Hills.
She says: The moment I see swimming “click” in a student, I feel a wave of happiness- their giant smile glowing, where once a timid or nervous excitement challenged their own self-confidence. I have seen hundreds of these smiles, from young ones to golden aged students, and it never fails to fill me with a sense of purpose.
I try to apply all my years of teaching swimmers to each and every new student’s learning abilities. What may work for one does not always transfer. When I was a zookeeper, I learned that positive reinforcement is the best and least stressful way to teach even the most stubborn tiger or sea lion to accept medical treatments, and swim beautifully (even the tiger!). Hopefully, none of my human trainees will be as tough, but I am up for the challenge!
As a Master’s student in Anthropology, I have learned to apply my observational skills to the pool too. Knowing how a student can adapt to the new challenge of swimming is not unlike understanding how different cultures learn to adapt to societies’ challenges.
I plan to use all my various experiences from Jr. Lifeguard instructor, Beach Lifeguard, Zookeeper, and Grad school to influence the unique and focused attention I will give while teaching a new swimmer.
Everyone deserves the ability to enjoy swimming and feel confident too. I can’t wait to welcome others into the water 🙂

I have been instructing swim lessons and lifeguarding for 4 years. I learned how to swim very young in Hawaii and continued swimming all the way until college when I received my lifeguard certification. I was fortunate enough to become an Eagle Scout and teach swimming in the Boy Scouts of America. After joining the Marine Corps I completed my certification for Marine Corps Instructor of Water Survival which is my current occupation. Within the Marine Corps I have been extensively trained in many different water survival and swimming techniques. I enjoy the outdoors and the I feel as though the beach is my second home. The thing I like most about teaching swim lessons and lifeguarding is knowing that I am teaching a skill to others that will potentially save their life one day.
Advanced LG certs: Waterfront lifeguard, Ocean Lifeguard Experience, Wilderness First Aid.

My lifeguarding has mainly been at the man-made Atlanta beach in Stockbridge. I have been a lifeguard for 9 years! I absolutely love lifeguarding!! Lifeguarding has always been one of my dream jobs and I want to continue helping and teaching about the safety of the pools. The reason I love lifeguarding so much is because of the patron interaction with the safety of lifeguarding and the rules of the pool. My best experience as a lifeguard has to be my very first save! The patron I went out to rescue, after I brought him back to shallow end, showed me much appreciation and just grateful that I was paying attention and got to him quickly.
I serve the Atlanta communities of Hampton, Kennesaw, Stockbridge, Mc Donough, among others.
4 years experience, serving DFW communities likeArlington, Fort Worth, Mansfield, Southlake
I’ve been life guarding in the Dallas/Fort Worth area for 4 years now. I’m certified to guard in shallow water, deep water, and water park settings. I’m also certified in CPR, AED, and first aid. I began working for the city of Arlington at a water park and since have guarded at various public pools, neighborhood pools, and private swim parties. I love the outdoors, swimming, and kids so life guarding is the perfect summer job for me. I’m currently attending school at The University of Mississippi; however, I look forward to my summers life guarding each year. I made some of my favorite childhood memories in the pool, so I hope to help other kids make memories of their own. Although safety is my first priority, I also strive to create a fun and happy environment at each pool I guard at!
I’ve been teaching swim lessons for 8+ years to children ages 2-18 (as well as adults). I’ve worked with children on every level – from those scared of the water, to kids on a swim team. As a life long competitive swimmer, teaching children to swim and instilling in them a love for the water has always been a passion of mine. In additional to helping children enjoy the water and learn the necessary survival skills, I am also capable of working on specific strokes and techniques with older or more advanced swimmers.
I worked as a lifeguard during high school and college for my local city quarry, and now work in the San Diego metro area. I’ve always enjoyed being in and around the water, so lifeguarding was an easy choice. Allowing people to have a great time while still being safe is something I pride myself in and I look forward to working with you, your family, and your guests!
I serve the San Diego communities of San Diego proper – Everything south of Carlsbad
I have been a swim instructor for 6 years and love teaching children how to swim . The best part of teaching swim lessons is seeing the progression of my students. There is nothing more satisfying than when a student understands how a certain swim stroke is swam!
I have also been a lifeguard for 6 years, and before I could work professionally I was a junior guard for 3 years. I always wanted to be a lifeguard ever since I was 11 and started swim team and would see the lifeguards up on the stands. The best part about lifeguarding is providing a fun, but safe swimming environment for others to enjoy. Fun Fact: I am going to school to be a music teacher and I currently can play 10 different instruments!
I serve the Sacramento communities of Roseville, West Sacramento, Carmichael, among others.
I have a current WSI certification
I am currently working my fourth summer as a certified lifeguard. I began my career at my local cabana club Los Paseos Association. I am currently working my fourth summer there, and also have worked one summer guarding for sports camps at Bellarmine College Preparatory, my former high school. When guarding, I like to maintain a strict, and quick to act approach. I like to shut down any signs of unsafely at the first possible occurance of them, making sure things do not escalate.
I serve the Bay Area communities of San Jose, Los Gatos, Mountain View, Saratoga, among others.
Hi, I’m Coco! I have been a swim instructor for a few years now, but have been working with kids for most of my life. It all started in Girl Scouts when I got to host my first event. I loved the energy the kids brought to the table, and from that moment, I knew I had to work with them. Experience in Girl Scouts helped me become a babysitter/nanny and camp counselor, and has eventually led me to teaching swim. Being a swim instructor seemed natural for me because I swam competitively in high school and love being in the water, as well as working with people. My favorite part about teaching swim is watching the child progress. The pride and excitement in their eyes when they finally master a skill they had been struggling with is priceless :~). A fun fact about me is that my favorite animal is the polar bear and I could talk your ear off for hours about why they’re so fascinating!
I became a lifeguard in high school and am now in my second year of college. I wanted to be lifeguard because I love swimming so much that didn’t want to be away from the pool while I was out of the water! I am also very concerned with safety ever since I took my very first CPR class with my Girl Scout troop. The instructor inspired me to continue on in my safety education and become AED and First Aid certified, and then eventually become a lifeguard and get my emergency oxygen distribution and blood borne pathogens certifications. I believe that people should have only good experiences in the water, and want to do everything I can to make that happen. I hope that everyone is able to enjoy the pool regardless of their skill level, and always feel safe in the water. A fun fact about me is that I love rock climbing!
I serve the OC, Inland Empire, and San Diego communities of Temecula, Murrieta, Menifee, and Orange, among others.
4 years experience! Serving communities like San Diego, Vista, Ramona, Oceanside, El Cajon
I am a San Diego native and in the water and sunshine is where I feel at home. I played on both the water polo and swim team all four years of high school and have always considered a job in the emergency medical field. I have been life guarding for four years and loving every minute. I take the job seriously and focus on maintaining a safe and fun environment. I am also pursuing a career as a San Diego beach life guard or fire fighter. EMT certified.
I serve the Atlanta communities of Atlanta proper, Riverdale, Stockbridge, Jonesboro, LoveJoy, among others.
I’ve enjoyed swimming long distances for a few years now, so I then figured, “why not use my skills to help others?” Shortly after, I decided to become a lifeguard! I’ve passed the certification course twice and have had experience guarding adults, children, and infants both at outdoor leisure pools and an indoor natatorium. I’ve even assisted non-swimmers at the beach! I swim a few kilometers a week and attend monthly lifeguard training. Needless to say, pool party hosts can rest easy while I make sure that everyone is safe while having lots of fun!
I serve the Houston communities of Spring, The Woodlands, Sugarland, Pearland, and Conroe, among others.
Hi, I’m Dallas. I have been teaching swimming lessons consistently since February of 2017. I teach a wide range of levels from beginning pre-school ages all the way to higher teenage levels. I work patiently and effectively with each child, giving each child equal time to work on techniques as well as making time for fun but educational activities. I find instructing an incredibly rewarding experience that allows me to pass on a skill to a child that they will use for the rest of their lives. I am a fully trained lifeguard with certifications in CPR, First Aid, and AED.
I was born in Salt Lake City, Utah in 1995. When I was 2 years old, my family moved to Southern Utah, near Zion National Park. I grew up spending most of my time outdoors rock climbing, hiking, camping, canyoneering, and most of all swimming during the long and hot summers experienced there. After graduating from high school, I moved to Seattle, Washington where I attended Highline College. There in Seattle, I experienced great music, incredible scenery, and made many amazing friends. Through my college, I was presented with the opportunity to become a lifeguard and a swim instructor. I found a true interest and love in the profession, building strong connections with fellow co-workers, regular patrons, as well as the children I taught. This summer (2017) I was given the unique opportunity to live in Hollywood, California. Here I aim to build more strong connections and increase my increase my experience within the aquatic community.
I serve the Greater Seattle area.

14 years experience as a lifeguard! General areas I serve: Los Angeles, Pasadena, Bel Air, Westwood
I swam and played water polo for 12 years. I competed and won national tournaments in both sports. I swam and played for the Commerce Club Team and played and swam in Bell Gardens High School. Every year since I graduated I have worked as a life guard either full or part time. I have been around water since I was 8 years young and I know the worry that parents have over having someone professional looking after their kids that they can trust. I take my job very seriously and enjoy giving parents a day off where they can enjoy themselves knowing that a professional is taking care of their kids.
–Thank you Daniel for being such a pro! We love you!
In my first year as a lifeguard, I aim to keep people safe in an environment that I know and love. Having grown up swimming and playing water polo, I’ve become very familiar with a huge variety of situations in pools. Being able to guard at different pools each shift further builds my familiarity with all sorts of different situations each time.
I serve the Bay Area communities Pleasanton, Dublin, San Francisco, San Ramon, among others.
I taught swim lessons at camp and privately for the last 3 years working with children of all ages. I love helping children learn how to swim and their “aha!” moment when they finally get a stroke and become comfortable with it. I actually learned how to swim pretty early on. At the tender young age of just 4 years old I would swim on my own!
I’ve been lifeguarding for the last 5 years and teaching swim lessons for the last 3. I always keep a fun and safe environment for my patrons and love to see a smile on their faces after a job well done. Event lifeguarding is so much fun and you meet so many new and interesting people.
I serve the NYC Tri-State Areas of Paramus, Philadelphia, New York, Manalapan, among others.
I have always loved the water and being a Lifeguard allows me to be in that environment. I intend to provide positive safety information and best practices each shift that I work. While doing all of this keeping the atmosphere Fun and upbeat for a complete guest experience.
I serve the North Bay Area communities of Monte Rio, Santa Rosa, Rohnert Park, Windsor, among others.
I have been a lifeguard for 4 years.
I started guarding at the local YMCA. I was then hired at a summer scout camp where I served as Assistant Waterfront Director for two years before being promoted to the Waterfront Director. I love guarding because I can keep people safe while also interacting with them. My goal is to provide an enjoyable environment where people don’t need me to be there but want me there. One fun fact is that I coach varsity high school diving.
I serve the greater Boston area communities of Boston proper, Worcester, Plymouth, Foxboro, among others.
Swim Instructor role: Growing up in the West Valley with a backyard pool, I learned to swim at a young age and got into water polo during high school and college. Water sports like surfing and sailing are hobbies of mine and I first started teaching private swim lessons shortly after I started my teaching career at Hoover High School in 1996. I still currently teach Health and PE while also serving in my Coast Guard reserve unit in San Pedro as a First Class Marine Science Technician. My son in grade school has been competing for two years on a swim team and loves it. All kids should have that opportunity.
Event Lifeguard role: Aside from the last two years working for Happy Swimmers, friends and family would ask me to act as a life guard for pool parties and functions when I became Red Cross certified for water safety and CPR. A good life guard takes preventative measures to mitigate potential hazards by identifying them early before the function begins. Done properly, pool saves are few and quick. I love the anticipation of potential challenges that each venue may pose and being a part of a random family”s fun safe memories they will have.
Hi, my name is David. I am a caring, funny, and a friendly person. I have been swimming since I was age 4 and I started to like swimming. I have swam for many swim teams including my high school swim team. I have formed many relationships and being able to swim with my friends. I have life guarded many town pools, camps, and party events for 2 years. My favorite part of lifeguard is being able to see the kids enjoying the water and having a fun time, but being able to keep them safe too. My favorite place to hangout during the summer is the beach with my family and friends. I love to watch basketball, football and hockey. My favorite food are pizza, french fries, and sushi.

I just recently started swim instructing about half a year go and have loved every moment. The satisfaction the children get when they have learned a stroke or how to improve it is pure bliss. I feel amazing knowing my job is done when parents come up to me informing me what their child has done at their own pool. Ensuring safety is also a big role in this job and teaching children how to swim makes that so much better.
I have been Lifeguarding for two years now and have loved every moment of it. Maintaining a happy and positive attitude while ensuring safety plays a big role when Lifeguarding, enjoying the job just makes it that much better.

I have been swimming practically my entire life. With a lifetime of swimming experience and involvement in teaching nearly all levels of swimmers, from children to adults, I have acquired the skills to ensure everyone has fun in a safe water environment. When it comes to lifeguarding, I constantly have the goal in mind of valuing the lives of every swimmer in front of me as if it were my own. I know I am providing a great service and that is what will drive me to always keep my skills “test-ready” and alert for any possible emergency. I like to be firm but kind while guarding a scene.
I’ve been a lifeguard for over a year now. I love to keep people safe and help them enjoy the water as much as I do! I’ve worked in a lot of crazy environments such as scuba diving experiences, caves, and dolphin pools so I’m up for any challenge!

From my love of the water sprang a lifeguarding job when I was sixteen years old. I started working at Golfland Sunsplash and loved every minute of it. I enjoyed watching the water, ensuring people were following the rules and being safe, and stepping in when emergencies did arise. Over the years at Golfland Sunsplash, I saved a number of people and always felt grateful to have a job being around a place that I loved so much. My love for water shows in the way that I interact with guests because I want them to have as enjoyable of an experience as I do being around it and in it when I’m scuba diving. I hope to work your event because I believe in not only keeping you and your guests safe but also being upbeat while doing so. To leave off, a fun fact about me is that I have scuba dived in Okinawa, Japan and also Monterey Bay. I hope to someday scuba dive in Antarctica.

I love to swim, it’s one of my favorite things to do ever since I was a baby. My mother even calls me a fish! I love being a lifeguard and watching people swim and making sure they stay safe.

Hi, my name is Emma Tenery. Although I may be a new lifeguard, that is not holding me back. I am excited and anxious to begin this next chapter in my life. My dad lifeguarded all throughout high school and college; he raved about his job. I wanted to experience a job similar to that, and lifeguarding was the perfect opportunity. I think it takes a certain type of person to be able to hold the position of a lifeguard, and I could not be more excited to fulfill this new role.

I was a Senior in high school when I decided to get my lifeguard certification, taught by Happy Swimmers trainer of course! Lifeguarding is something I decided to pursue after I had been teaching swim lessons at my local YMCA for a year. I have worked for two YMCAs (one in San Jose and one in San Diego) before I decided to take up Happy Swimmers’ Lifeguarding events too.
Happy Swimmers is a great company to work for, especially when it attracts such great families who are always so friendly and inviting. I think this job has really improved my people skills, just from having to meet so many people out of the blue! (thanks Eric! we have great clients and great staff… owner Jenn)
My favorite part of teaching swim lessons is being able to help kids gain confidence in the water! I find nothing to be more gratifying than when I am able to teach a child how to swim and see how far they are able to come throughout our lesson. I have taught swim lessons and assisted with our Jr. Swim program for 3 years at our community pool. I have always loved the water and want others to be able to not be afraid of it. Fun fact: I taught my little sister how to swim when she was 3 and I was 5!
I have been a lifeguard for my community pool in Sutter, Ca for the past three years.

Hi I’m Evan and I have been teaching swim lessons for 3 years now, not only that but I have also been a assistant swim coach for a Club Swim Team for about 3 years as well. I have taught so many kids with different levels of ability that everyday I go into work it’s always something new which is what I like cause it keeps me on my toes and gives me new opportunities to learn more about teaching swim lessons. Kids swim lesson are not the only teaching I have done, I also teach adult swim lessons, and special need children how to swim and enjoy the water. My favorite part about teaching swim lessons is when the kids get in the water and they kinda freak out a little bit or even a lot. This makes my day because this is something so new to them and I’m the lucky one to teach them. Once we get used to the water I am able to work with them and let them become less hesitant with the water to then be able to teach them how to swim. As they become more experienced as the lessons go on you see a change from the first time they jump into the last time, this makes it all worth it.
I’m originally from Illinois and I decided to move across the country to call this my home! Why because of the beautiful weather, go to college to become a Nurse Practitioner and there are so many fun things to do California.
My intentions while guarding are to maintain a safe pool environment, maximize the fun the kids can have (or even adults), and also get to know the patrons on a personal level. I love lifeguarding because I’m able to meet so many people and they all come from different backgrounds and I’m lucky enough to be able to meet so many amazing individuals.

I have worked as a Lifeguard at Brigham Young University and a private lifeguard for parties and special events.

Fun Fact!! : When I was a baby I almost drowned for inhaling soap foam when I was being showered, I was rescued by my mother who knew CPR and that motivated me to become a lifeguard!
I serve the Los Angeles communities of Culver City, Santa Monica, Beverly Hills, Inglewood, Hawthorne, among others.

Hello, my name is Garrison Taska! I have been a lifeguard for almost 2 years now, and it is the best decision I have ever made. I love watching kids and adults get to kick back and swim while I get to keep them safe. I love being outdoors and this makes lifeguarding great for me.

One fact about me is that I will be going to play college baseball next year at San Jacinto CC. I’m looking forward to a great summer with Happy Swimmers!
I will serve the greater Houston area.
To me lifeguarding is less of a job, and more of a responsibility to care for other people. I have been lifeguarding for the past 4 years now, and in my time guarding I have learned a few things. The meaning of hard work, customer service, and above all the importance our job titles carry. To literally guard lives. I love my job, and I love helping people. It is my goal that everyone enjoys their time in the water, while all the while remaining safe.

I have lifeguarded at an aquatic center for one year and have absolutely enjoyed it. I intend to lifeguard because I love children and am happy to ensure their safety.
I serve the Dallas-Fort Worth communities of Dallas, Plano, Arlington, Irving, among others
Watching someone swim on their own, after teaching them, gives me a great feeling as an instructor. My goal when teaching someone how to swim is to make sure that they’re doing it safely and efficiently. The skill level of the swimmer determines what I will be teaching them.
When lifeguarding, I intend to make sure the area I am responsible for is a safe environment (inside and outside of the water). I believe that safety and fun go hand in hand, because it’s no fun when a swimmer gets injured.
I serve the Central Coast/Los Angeles communities of Santa Maria, Santa Barbara, Pasadena, Los Angeles, among others.

Hi, my name is Glori. I started swimming before I could walk and fell in love with the water. I began swimming competitively at age 6 and did that through high school. I have also life guarded and taught swim lessons for 15 years. I love teaching others to swim and hope to share that love of the water with others. I also teach preschool during the week. I have taught kids and adults and individuals with special needs. I love swimming and want everyone to have a great experience in the water. My picture was taken in the Mediterranean sea a few years back.
Why a Lifeguard at my age? I was teaching water fitness and I asked myself would I be able to respond to a water emergency? No. I became certified within 3 months. Being in the water has always been natural to me. Lessons starting at 4 and the Swim and Dive Team by 10. Fun Water safety and being water safe that’s my motto. Being older I believe I have that extra edge. That experience, the intuition. Call it loving what you do and enjoying the moment. Anything you enjoy doing you do well.
I Love caring for kids and being a Lifeguard. I have been a babysitting for 5 years and been CPR certified for 2 years.I feel that being a lifeguard is so rewarding and making sure your kids are safe is my number one priority.

Hello patrons, my name is Graham Thompson. Over the past three to four years, I have been an active participant in competitive swimming. I became interested in being a lifeguard some time last year, and got my certification early this 2017 summer. As an event lifeguard, I intend to watch every individual inside the pool, and out, like a hawk. However, I am no robot, and am more than willing to mix it up by supervising pool games such as “sharks and minnows”, while combining the fun with unwavering safety. A fun fact about myself that I am proud to share is that I was the captain of my high school swim team just last year during the August-October 2016 swim season.
I serve the Phoenix communities of Phoenix, Glendale, and Peoria, among others.

We catered to both seasonal swim lessons and swim teams. I have worked with ages 6 months – 76 years old and groups of 1 to 15! Swimming is such a important skill to learn and it doesn’t matter what age you start at. With some toys, games, rhymes and more, I love trying to make a fun and informative environment to learn in! Also, with a lifeguarding background, safety is my top priority for every lesson.

Lifeguarding is a really important and meaningful job that I get the honor of doing and thanks to Happy Swimmers, I can help keep backyard pools safe now too. I am a swimmer myself and swam on Red Mountain’s Varsity Swim Team in High School. Currently, I am going into my junior year of college pursuing a degree in Economics.
I serve the Phoenix communities of Mesa, Chandler, Gilbert, Tempe, among others
I first started swim instructing last year, working all seasons and now summer. I’ve taught kids from all age groups 6 months to 15 years old. I’ve also taught kids who are very scared of water and kids who are naturals. Previously, I competed on a swim team for 6 years, two in college and four in high school. Therefore, I’m very familiar with proper techniques and stroke work. Because I have also taught kids who didn’t know anything about swimming or just were just too fearful of water, I have learned to make sure kids are having fun while learning but are also safe!
I’ve been lifeguarding for three years, starting at a water park and now I currently work at a pool. I primarily guard birthday parties and know a lot of water games kids love to play. I always make sure the kids are having fun and smiling but most of all are being safe. Lifeguarding and teaching are my passions so I take my job very serious, however I always make sure to have a smile on, ensuring everyone is having fun.

I have been lifeguarding for 2 years, going to my third! I started guarding at a summer camp in Wisconsin and absolutely loved it! I enjoyed being outside making sure people were having fun while being safe in the water and occasionally joining in on the fun of splashing around in the beach area that was made from the river. I also guarded the Olympic-sized pool at the University of Denver where many activities such as water polo, kayaking, swim lessons, and swim competitions took place.

Seeing people laugh and create memories in these environments, while also being safe, is what I enjoy most about lifeguarding.

I began my instruction career at the Rutgers University pool. I began with teaching adults and then transitioned to teaching children. I also taught a few children’s lessons over the summer at the YMCA camp. I thoroughly enjoy teaching children because of their typically energetic attitude just to be in the water. The most amount of joy I get from teaching is when I see the amazement in an adult’s eyes when they are swimming when they came in with the thought they’d never learn how to swim.
My background consists of learning to swim as a small child and becoming a competitive swimmer in my youth through to high school. I began Lifeguarding five years ago at Rutgers University, where I am now a Head Lifeguard. I also have experience being a lake lifeguard with the Frost Valley YMCA camp. I thoroughly enjoyed my time working with the camp. My intention for being a Lifeguard and Swimming instructor is to help make any aquatics setting as safe and comfortable as I can for as many people as I can. I enjoy interacting with energetic people, and being able to provide a form of safety and security for people that is very unique and in a setting where people can thoroughly enjoy themselves.
I serve the NYC Tri-State area communities of Long Branch, Manasquan, Atlantic City, among others.
I am a newly certified lifeguard and I am checked out in CPR/AED. I love working with young kids and any type of person. I enjoy making sure that they are safe at all times in a pool not only that but outside of the pool as well. I enjoy creating fun pool related games to keep children active and staying safe at all costs. I am also the type of person who will confirm and show up early before designated time upon my summoned arrival for any event. I love what I do and I will show up with a smile on my face and be prepared for any type of emergency on hand.

I was a lifeguard for the large majority of last summer. Over that time I never had to save anyone, that kind of situation never seemed to occur while I was on duty and I hope to keep it that way. Being a lifeguard gives me another opportunity to keep people safe. I enjoy the feeling of responsibility, the interactions with people about how to remain safe, and the experience enabling me to help people in general. Being an advanced scuba diver, I honestly enjoy the underwater world more than the world just above the surface.

Lifeguarding has been a passion since I was a little kid. When I was a little kid, I was swimming in a wave pool and blacked out from lack of oxygen. Although the pool had many lifeguards, none of them noticed me. My mom brought me back and thankfully I survived. Because of that, I always wanted to be a lifeguard to make sure a situation like that never happens again and so that I can be the one to jump in and save the day.
I serve the LA communities of Lake Forest, Irvine, Newport Beach, Laguna Beach, among others.
I have been a lifeguard for about two years. I am an attentive lifeguard, continuously scanning the pool and my surroundings. I was a lifeguard for a Day Camp at a lake and I not only guarded but also taught swimmers from the age of 3-12 years old how to swim. I love to play water games such as sharks and minnows, red light green light and relay with the swimmers. When I was younger my mom would always have to remind me to eat because I could swim all day if I had the option too. This is why I take pride in being a lifeguard it’s not just a job for me but kind of a lifestyle where water is my element.

Living on Kaua’i island, Hawai’i most of the year, and traveling to Australia, Los Angeles, San Francisco Bay, and Houston regularly to lead Lifeguard Courses and CPR training, Jenn has been the director of Happy Swimmers for over 25 years. It is a passion to assist in the empowerment of children learning how to swim in a medium once considered a fearful, uncertain place, magically turned into a supportive, fun environment to be explored with friends. The same goes for lifeguarding and training new lifeguards–there is no greater inner joy either in saving someone’s life as a lifeguard, or teaching others how to perform lifesaving skills. It is an honor for me to watch my students grow–where once there was doubt or panic, now there is strength and confidence.
Thank you for looking to become a Happy Swimmer!
–Jenn Tyler, owner, and founder
My experience in the water has grown tremendously throughout the years, for I began at the age of two. I was taught by my grandfather, Ed Cazalet, and aunt, Shirley Cazalet—both of whom were World Class Competitive Swimmers.

I have been a lifeguard for about 2 years now. My first lifeguard position was a community center where we averaged 20-30 children and teens a day. My most recent employer was Savannah State University, the college I attend now. I have been a lifeguard with my college for about a year and a half where we average 15-25 students daily. What I have come to love about lifeguarding is the numerous different personalities of people I get to interact with on a daily basis and build a relationship with. I enjoy the attentiveness I have to keep in order to be a lifeguard, this job keeps me alert and focused on the task at hand to make sure every patron is safe under my supervision. Don’t hesitate to book me 🙂

I love working with kids and always keep water safety as my top priority.
2 years experience, traveling generally in the areas of Irvine, Costa Mesa, Huntington, Newport
The water has been my happy place since as far back as I can remember, but being from the Pacific Northwest, the weather wasn’t always the most accepting of my true love. So I decided at a young age I was going to go to SoCal for college, where I can be in the water year round. With this passion of mine, getting my lifeguard certification was an obvious choice, which I obtained as soon as I started school in California. I have now been a practicing lifeguard for the last year and a half, and I can proudly say I made a great choice choosing to get my certification. It has been nothing but rewarding and wonderful and I look forward to continuing my lifeguard career.

Greetings ya’ll from Music City U.S.A. (Nashville, TN) I’m Julie Spence and this season kicks off my 25th summer of water antics and shenanigans!! Being a LG or SI isn’t just a job, it’s MY passion.
I grew up in a small town in the Mojave Desert of Southern California. Swimming wasn’t just something recreational-it was a MUST if you wanted to survive the 120* summers. My parents introduced me to the water at the age of 3 & I have been a water baby ever since. I have competitively swam and coached swim teams, taught swimming lessons, lifeguarding, to even cleaning and managing pools.
After High School I was employed by the U.S. Army in Vicenza, Italy for 3 years, to teach the Airborne troops how to survive a water landing AKA “Drownproofing” I also conducted the Pre-qualification swim tests for soldiers wanting to go to Ranger or Special Forces school.
Upon returning stateside, I made Nashville my forever home. I fell in love with TN and all it has to offer. I also have my love for the water. I believe that accidental drowning is 100% preventable and I’m dying to show you and your children how to make the pool safe and fun for everyone to enjoy.
One Love, One Mission

Lifeguarding was an easy choice due to my natural love for the water. I started my lifeguard career in Bermuda as a Beach Lifeguard. The Bermuda Lifeguard Service instilled the responsibilities of lifeguarding and the importance of prevention. Thanks to comprehensive training, we have prevented countless number of incidents from escalating. 3 years in the Bermuda Lifeguard Service gave me the opportunity to lifeguard in Washington DC and Australia. I have gained lifeguard experience in marathons, corporate functions, lounges, recreation centers, fitness gyms, private homes, and even birthday parties. Anything to put the heart near the water.

Hello, my name is Katherine and I have been a certified Lifeguard for three years. I have previously been a guard for Brook hollow Golf Club in Dallas TX, as well as events and parties. I also babysit during the summer for families who require CPR and lifeguard certified sitters. I am currently pursuing a degree in kinesiology at Stephen F Austin, in order to become an occupational therapist. I chose to work for Happy Swimmers because I enjoy the personal aspect of guarding for events rather than overseeing hundreds of people I do not get to communicate with at club pools. Lifeguarding for events and parties is a big responsibility, and it is rewarding to know that I am there to protect the lives of those who may not have that protection without the help of Happy Swimmers.

I am proud to say Lifeguarding has become a way of life for me. I have ALWAYS lived by the water as I was born and raised in South Florida before relocating to Los Angeles. I bring to you multiple years of experience as a Head Lifeguard at my local YMCA, a lifeguard for triathlons, lakes, pools, any body of water, you name it, I’ve guarded it. Safety is my number one priority as I have seen far too many unnecessary boo-boo’s during my career.

When I arrive at your home or event, you can expect and I will deliver the utmost amount of professionalism and safety.

Hello, my name is Kendrick. I’m a recently Certified American Red Cross Lifeguard. In addition to my day job, as a Fixed Income Specialist, I am an Assistant Scoutmaster with Boy Scout Troop 773 in Irving, TX. I made the decision to become a Lifeguard after completing BSA Aquatic Supervision & Water Rescue Training. I developed a love for swimming as a form of exercise following 20+ years as an amateur cyclist, and the addition of a few extra pounds. An important component of safety comes from “Being Prepared” (Scout’s Motto) for emergencies should they occur, but perhaps more practically, Prevention. I have over 6 years experience working with kids through scouting, and believe in living the 12 points of the Scout Law (ask me to recite them sometime ;). As a business professional, I strongly believe in providing excellent client service, and developing lasting relationships by treating individuals the way I expect to be treated.
In addition to the above certifications, I am Red Cross Certified in First Aid, CPR, and AED. I’m Originally from Lafayette, Louisiana and have been living in the DFW area since 1995. I completed my Bachelor’s in 1991 at University of Southwestern LA. I Eventually earned my MBA at University of Dallas in 2002. When not involved with work or scouting, you’ll likely find me either in the pool, on the bike, or thinking about one of the above. Other interest include cooking (indoors & out), geocaching, and in general pushing myself to learn and do new things; rest is good too 🙂
Having a qualified and responsible Lifeguard is very important in keeping kids and adults safe at your events. I’m very honored to be part of the Happy Swimmers Guard Staff!
I look forward to working with you!!!
I serve the DFW communities of Irving, Dallas, Arlington, Southlake, among others
I have 2 years Swim Instruction, Coaching, & lifeguard experience.
As a swim instructor, I teach kids to not only learn how to swim but to love swimming. I want them to be safe in the water and not depend on anyone else to help them. What I enjoy most about teaching anyone how to swim is seeing their progress and seeing them start to really love swimming and enjoy being in water. I love taking a kid who was originally scared and timid in the water and getting them to absolutely love swimming and love coming to swim lessons. Teaching swim lessons is a very fulfilling job and I love feeling like I have an impact on a child’s life. I still remember my swim instructor from when I first learned how to swim and I hope that the kids I teach will remember me and all I teach them. I have taught over 100 people ranging all different age groups, from as young as 6 months old to adults over 50. I was also a part time swim coach for a summer league team and a year-round team. I’m great with teaching freestyle and backstroke and moderate on teaching the harder strokes breaststroke and butterfly. I have also taught some more experienced kids how to do dives and flip turns. I have taken kids from fearing the water to swimming all the way across a 25-meter pool with no help.

I have been a lifeguard for 1 year now, and during that year I was a Surf Instructor for kids and adults ages ranging from 6 to 45. I also have guarded multiple private events for Happy Swimmers. Through watching 45 kids in the ocean, saving people from rip currents, and guarding at a pool party, I have gained first hand experience as to what it takes to be a successful Lifeguard. I know water is a dangerous place for both kids and adults, and I want to use my experience to protect everyone around me. I enjoy giving people that sense of safeness because I am watching them or their kids, and I enjoy being outside and anything to do with water.
Some of the areas I serve:San diego, La Mesa, Del Mar, Carlsbad

As a young child I began my teaching career babysitting my younger siblings in the shoreline of Haleiwa, where we were raised. We grew up in the ocean learning to dive, sail, fish and surf, and I never missing an opportunity to learn more about the water. I passes on what I knew to my siblings and as a young adult began teaching others as well. After graduating from Kamehameha Schools, I began beach guarding for the City and County of Honolulu as well as Hawaiian Water Patrol, both specializing on beaches along the North Shore of Oahu. I continue to serve this duty and teach the youth thru programs like Jr. Lifeguards and Surfers Healing, a non-profit organization that takes/teaches children with autism how to surf.

Hey I’m Kyle, and I moved to Honolulu from Orange County, New York about a year and a half ago to study nursing at Hawaii Pacific University. When I lived in New York, I was a lifeguard for about three years, although in New York, the lifeguarding season is typically only during the Summer. For two Summers I independently lifeguarded at various sized private pools in New York and New Jersey that ranged from having 0 – 40 patrons of all ages in the pool at any given time. The Summer after that, I worked in a team of lifeguards at the YMCA on Coney Island in Brooklyn, New York to supervise two separate very large and busy pools. Throughout my 3 years of lifeguarding, I or one of my team members have never had enter the water to save a drowning victim while I was on the clock because myself and my team have successfully prevented any serious emergencies before they happened.
I serve the Honolulu communities of Honolulu, Kailua, Kaneohe, among others.

Hey ya’ll! My name is Lauren and I am happy to serve you here at Happy Swimmers. Along with being a certified American Red Cross Lifeguard, I also am a swim instructor. I have taught swim lessons for two years at a public pool. The age group I have experience teaching with is toddler through school age. However I can assist any age group, kids are just so fun! Seeing kids progress is what makes my job fun. I love to see children grow in their skills and become comfortable in the water.
A fun fact about me– I know American Sign Language! Maybe I can teach you a few signs!
Hello everyone! My name is Lauren and I have been an American Cross Certified Lifeguard for 3 years. I began my lifeguarding experience at a public pool and progressed from there to working for an after school program. Now, I am here at Happy Swimmers.
I have been a lifeguard for 3 years.
My goal as a lifeguard is your child/children’s safety. I take a preventative approach and try to stop the hazard before it happens. However, real life doesn’t always work like that; rest assured I am trained to act and do the best I can to ensure patrons’ safety.
My favorite part of lifeguarding is seeing everyone have fun. Swimming and water activities are one of the best parts of summer.
A fun fact about me–I attend The University of Texas at Austin and am majoring in Speech Language Pathology with a minor in American Sign Language.
Hi! My name is Lauren and I’m so glad to be a part of the Happy Swimmers team! I have spent most of my life in a swimming pool and have 12 years of competitive swim experience under my belt. For the last few years, I’ve served as a mentor/coach to the young swimmers on a local Arizona swim team. To me, it is so important to learn how to swim, and it is equally important to learn how to love swimming. I can work with any level, starting with teaching to love and be comfortable in the pool all the way through to the specifics of strokes and turns in competition. A fun fact about me is that I broke a 25 year standing record in backstroke when I was 8 years old and that I just got back from working in Australia! Can’t wait to work with you!
I have been a lifeguard for one year and am extremely comfortable in the pool and watching over it. To me, it is very important to have lots of fun in the pool, but safety is always number one. I want to make sure everyone at your party is having a great time while keeping it safe.

Teaching from ages 3 to 37, swim lessons have always been a true joy for me to teach! Over the years, I always adjust all of my lessons to each child, teen or adult. Every swim student learns differently, which has taught me several different approaches on how to instruct them in way that is both encouraging and easy to grasp. Whatever age, level, or fear you have of the water, I am a very patient Swim Instructor who sincerely cares about teaching anyone to become a better, confident swimmer! My favorite part about lessons is being able to see the improvement of my students, seeing them smile knowing that they have gained control over a vital skill that could one day save their life.
I first started lifeguarding when I was 16, over the years I have learned so many useful, lifesaving skills that are essential to not only my job, but to my community.

Swim Bio: Hello, my name is Armando. I am a Hispanic male i am 5’10 and weigh about 175. I am very athletic and love to exercise. I’ve played many sports throughout my youth. I swam and played water polo throughout high school. I also played other sports outside of school such as soccer,football, and baseball. I began to lifeguard my first year after high school. I taught swim lessons to kids from the ages of 5-12. I really enjoyed working with the kids, they always made my day. It’s truly an amazing feeling knowing you played a big part in teaching a child a valuable lesson that goes a long way. Swimming is a life skill you must learn in my opinion sort of like riding a bike. I take great passion in what I do and safety always comes first.
Lifeguarding in the Summer is one of the best jobs for a college student I believe. What’s more fun then being by the water and soaking in the sun in the midst of Summer? I remember going to the pool every summer and talking to the lifeguards. I always thought they looked so cool and what kid didn’t want to be cool? I have guarded for a little more then a year now and I can honestly say I love it knowing the importance of saving one’s life or being able to prevent a terrible accident is a very important job. Makes you feel like a bit of a hero.

Serving Washington DC, Baltimore area, All of northern VA, Loundon County, Fairfax County.
I’ve had three years of lifeguarding history at three companies. My goal whenever I’m lifeguarding is to prevent as many possible rescues before they even can take place. As I have only had to make one save in the past three years, this could have been a much greater number if had not been vigilant of my surroundings at all times. The thing l like most about lifeguarding events is I’m in charge of so many people’s lives it’s nerve wracking of course but it’s also gives me a sense of authority that when it comes down to it I have to act to save someone’s life.~~great awareness, Matthew and thanks for bringing your A-game 🙂 owner Jenn

I have been a lifeguard for over 4 years now. It seemed like the best job for me to do since I have been around the water ever since I was a little boy. I love going to these lifeguard events and seeing all the kids having a great time because it reminds me of when I was young and would go to the pool all the time. I love being the ‘cool’ lifeguard that kids can play with but at the same time I always make sure kids are being safe and everything is under control.
This will be my fourth consecutive year working as a Red Cross certified lifeguard. I worked at Andover Country Club for three years, where I performed two rescues and aided many young kids with minor injuries. In my third, and final, year at Andover Country Club I became the head Lifeguard. Which means that I was given the responsibility of testing the pool chemicals and safety equipment/procedures, along with working well and collaborating with my coworkers. Since I have gone to college I have gained experience Lifeguarding and assisting at Special Olympics events, and swim lessons or swim meets.
My goal as a Lifeguard is to make sure the patrons are having the best experience possible, while maintaining a safe environment in and around the pool. I make sure to re-read the Lifeguarding manual often to make sure I am up to date on all procedures and rules.
My favorite part of Lifeguarding is being able to watch the patrons enjoy themselves and have fun by the pool.
2 Fun Facts about myself:
I’ve been a competitive swimmer for 8 years now
I’ve been Skydiving twice
I serve the greater Boston communities of Andover, Boston proper, Worcester, Barnstable, among others.
I have been teaching swim lessons for the last 6 years. I genuinely have an excitement for using the performance techniques I learned as an actor at Chapman University to creatively get children to fall in love with the water! Not only should kids learn how to swim correctly, but more importantly they should have fun in the water!
I was a competitive swimmer for ten years as a teeny bopper and fell in love with lifeguarding and swim lessons when I was in high school. I think that every child should learn the safety of the water, as well as feel comfortable enough in it to have fun! My favorite thing about lifeguarding events is meeting new people in my community!
I serve the LA communities of Culver City, Studio City, Beverly Hills, Brentwood, among others.

30+ years of swim lesson teaching experience and lifeguard experience. 10 years of Lifeguard Instructing.
Serving the communities of the Greater Houston Area.
Swim Instructor role:I have been teaching and coaching swimming for over 30 years to children of all ages, in a variety of settings and environments. I also currently work with triathletes in improving swim technique for open water. I thoroughly enjoy the excitement a child (regardless of the age), when a goal is achieved. I can share many stories about swimming and teaching, but nothing is more satisfying when a child has a big smile and is thrilled to see you because they enjoy the swim time. When teaching swim lessons, I am thrilled to see the self-confidence of each child building as they progress.
Event Lifeguard role: I am now entering my 35th season as a LG. Each year brings many rewards. It is joy to see kids having fun at their parties and playing in the pool. I am present to keep everyone safe.
Additional certifications in: Lifeguard Open Water Certified — lake/ocean, WaterPark Certified, O2 Certified,
Red Cross Lifeguard Instructor (LGI) and CPR Instructor roles: My goal in training lifeguards is to instill the understanding that we are there to protect and serve. It is our job to prevent injuries before they occur and respond rapidly when an incident does happen. I teach the skills and practice the skills, so the participant can successfully meet the requirements to become a lifeguard. I train both pool and waterfront guards.
I have been teaching CPR for over 20 years. It is interesting to see how the various certifying agencies have become more stream-lined in their presentation of this lifesaving skill, creating an environment of being able to work together. It is rewarding when a participant reaches out to share how they were able to help someone because of the class.
I have been a lifeguard for 7 years, working for orange county parks and recreation at kelly park (rock springs), Discovery Cove Orlando, and now currently working for RDV sportsplex in Maitland. I have always had a strong passion for lifeguarding and helping and serving others. I am very excited for this adventure with happy swimmers and can’t wait to experience the different events. A little fun fact about myself is that I absolutely love the outdoors. Most days you can find me either hunting, fishing, or on any body of water possible!

A little over ten years ago, I was drawn to lifeguarding; as a competitive swimmer, I had a deep passion for the water, and wanted to ensure that others were able to enjoy the water (hopefully as much as I do), safely. Since I first got my certification, I have expanded my qualifications to include Emergency Medical Technician and several military related swimming instructor and responder qualifications. They were a natural fit for me because I have been a swimmer forever; from the time I was small, through high school, and even at the Coast Guard Academy, where I graduated in 2014 with a BS in Civil Engineering, swimming has always been my first love. Fun fact: I have acted as a lifeguard in in more countries than states (6 countries/4 states)! I look forward to working with you!

I’m looking to go into that field later on. One thing that I enjoy about being a lifeguard is that you meet a lot of different people which makes for a good experience. A fun fact about me is I’m into sports and I like to surf.
In the past, I worked at a series of public pools in my community. My intention in guarding is to gain experience and build relationships with new people. I love to talk to new people with different backgrounds and stories. Meeting new people everyday have probably been some of my favorite experiences while guarding.
I serve the Washington DC metro communities of (Maryland)Bowie, Crofton, Annapolis, Laurel, Columbia, among others.
I’d love to gain as much experience as possible in lifeguarding, possibly becoming a LG instructor in the near future, while making sure everyone is safe and having a good time! I’m fluent in English and Greek and love getting to know different people from different areas of the world.
I serve the communities of San Diego, Portland, Phoenix, Tucson
I have been lifeguarding for over three years, and every year I still see something new, which helps keep me on my toes. I always wanted to be a doctor so in high school I thought, why not become a lifeguard since they also keep people safe? I love that lifeguarding is kind of like health. Prevention is the key. Even though I’m now studying Industrial Engineering in college, something totally not health related, I am happy to be there to give parents a peace of mind, knowing their kids are safe. I love the outdoors, and I love that lifeguarding let’s me be outdoors, this picture is from the painted desert in Arizona.
I serve the DFW communities of Dallas, Fort Worth, Richardson, Plano, among others.
Hi, my name is Miriam and I’ve been a lifeguard for 3 years now. I love lifeguarding because it allows me to save people from drowning and helps me make a difference in the world for others. Lifeguard events are my favorite places to lifeguard at because I love meeting new people and being able to save lives at the same time. I also did competitive USA swimming for 7 years so I’m a great swimmer and I always make sure everyone stays safe!
Last summer I lifeguarded at a summer camp, spending my afternoons watching kids splash in the river and my nights applying aloe vera. Lifeguarding to me is all about making sure the most fun is possibly had by my swimmers while still staying safe. Lifeguarding isn’t about ruining fun or being a buzzkill, it’s about making sure everyone has the best possible time in a safe environment!
I have been teaching swimming lessons for three years now and I enjoy teaching kids the most because they are sponges. They learn quickly and I find it very rewarding to see a child’s progress. I also like teaching adults because you can rationalize with them when it comes to fear or their corrections. Teaching lessons is enjoyable for me because I know what it’s like to have that fear of the water and I love helping people get over that.
I have been lifeguarding for three summers too and working in different pools has taught me to be aware of surroundings that you would think wouldn’t cause any trouble. I like lifeguarding events because not only am I guarding lives, I also get to see kids having fun and it reminds me of my childhood. One fun fact about me is that I didn’t know how to swim when I joined water polo in high school, I was actually terrified of the water.
I serve the NYC communities of Queens, Brooklyn, Manhattan, among others.

Swim Instructor Bio: Hello!! My name is Nanci and I have been teaching swimming lessons since the earth cooled! I’m a very patient instructor, having been in education for close to 28 years as a teacher and university professor. I’ve worked with all age levels. The best part of my day is when your child actually realizes that they can be successful and swims to me unaided. It’s very rewarding! I look forward to meeting you and your family!
Lifeguard Bio: As a parent and a lifeguard, safety has always been my number one concern around a pool. I am diligent at my position and take it very seriously. I’ve worked small family parties, and also at large public pools. I look forward to caring for your needs!!

As a young avid swimmer, becoming a Lifeguard was always a focal goal to tackle. My favorite part about being a Lifeguard is the opportunity for people to trust you. When passion leads, purpose follows.
“If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.” – John Quincy Adams
5 years experience teaching swim lessons!
Areas served: I’m willing to cover a wide area of northern LA! I go as far west to Thousand Oaks, to the most eaters point of of Glendale!
Swim Teaching: Hi there! I come from a long background of aquatics, and am always up for a challenge! I get my teaching experience and understanding on the mechanics of swimming, firsthand from 4 years of swimming on my high school team. I began coaching in the spring of 2012 for a small swim instruction company based in Moorpark CA, while simultaneously volunteering with the special olympics for three seasons as a coach in the SanFernando Valley. I pride myself on the fundamentals of water safety, on all levels of learning. I push the boundaries of comfort for my students at times (just as in any challenging subject of learning) but never force students, or have them do anything that exceeds their own abilities. I am patient dedicated, and have the same level of respect for ALL.
Lifeguard for Hire work: Vigilant, preventative, and alert, are all words that belong with a pool side lifeguard on duty. I can help bring a little extra peace of mind to any event or occasion. I bring to the table tactics similar to those of my swim lessons. On duty, I am constantly on the lookout for any possible problem(s), and to the best of my abilities prevent whatever I can before it happens. Water safety is my #1priority when I am present.
I have been a lifeguard for 5 years
I have 2 years lifeguarding experience
I am currently in my second year of lifeguarding, and have never stopped loving it since I started. When lifeguarding, I try to limit accidents and dangers by catching them before they even happen. I lifeguard in a professional manner, yet still make the event enjoyable for all involved. Lifeguarding for events such as parties is a unique experience because I not only get to keep people safe while they have fun, but get to know new people. I have been swimming on my summer league for over 12 years, so I am very comfortable near the water and know what to look for in people’s swimming abilities. When you don’t find me at work lifeguarding or at home studying, you will almost always find me with a fly rod in hand on any local body of water.
I serve the Austin communities of Round Rock, Spicewood, and Elgin, among others.
I’ve maintained my Lifeguard certifications for over 3 years now. While I do love the flexible hours of lifeguarding, making sure everyone is safe is priority. A somewhat interesting thing or or two about me is that I can sing pretty well and the tallest in my family.
I serve the Houston communities of Houston, Sugar Land, Cypress, and Sienna Plantation, among others.
11 years lifeguarding experience! WOW! Serving areas from Santa Monica and all the Westside.
I love guarding at different pools and working with a wide variety of ages and personalities. If it’s safe and feasible, I’ll start a game with the kids or throw a ball around with them. I have years of experience as a lifeguard in different atmospheres including camps, private pools, and lakes. When I’m not lifeguarding, I’m working in marketing or traveling the world. I hope to make your party safe and fun!
I have been Lifeguarding for 7 years since I was 15. I have guarded pools at gyms, a high school, backyards, camps, and a community college. My intentions as your lifeguard are rooted in preventing accidents from happening in the first place while providing you with peace of mind that if an emergency does happen I am able to respond quickly and effectively. What I like most about Lifeguarding events is meeting new people and seeing all of the unique pool designs that I have encountered over the years and how creative some can be when designing their pool. A fun fact about me is that my favorite marine animal is a sea turtle because they take things nice and easy, plus they love the water!
I serve the NYC Tri-State Area communities of Hamilton, NJ. New Brunswick, NJ. Hightstown, NJ. East Windsor, NJ, among others.
Serving areas including Miami Beach, Aventura, Sunny Isle, Coral Gables
I have been working for three years as a private lifeguard in Miami Shores and have great people skills. Lifeguarding private events keeps me on my toes and allows me to branch out and reach new people that need lifeguarding service or that just need connections into the lifeguard industry and private pools. I am extremely athletic and an avid waterman of many different sports, and I also swam for 6 years so I’m not the worst person to get swimming instructions from.
I have 2 years of experience in the fields of lifeguarding and swim instructing. I love working as a lifeguard and take the responsibility in ensuring the safety of everyone very seriously. I enjoy lifeguarding events because it allows me to make sure kids are having fun while staying safe and out of harms way. I’m currently an 18 year-old student athlete attending West Campus High School. I consider my education top priority, second to my athletics. I stay very active with wrestling, volleyball, and other high-intensity activities. I look forward to working with you!

I serve the NYC Tri-State Areas of Nassau County, Suffolk County, Queens, among others.
I began teaching swimming lessons five years ago! I have taught group and private swimming lessons at a private country club in Georgia. I then started teaching swimming lessons for Whittier College here in California, last summer. I really enjoyed teaching that Sports Camp at Whittier College because not only did my kids have fun, but I did too! I have been teaching private and group swimming lessons at my local YMCA in Whittier since August of last year. I also teach private and group lessons for babies and parents and special needs. I love teaching swimming lessons because I want the children to love the water as much as I do! My absolute favorite part about teaching swimming lessons is watching the children improve. Knowing that I taught those kids how to swim the correct way is my whole motive!
I began lifeguarding five summers ago at a private country club in Georgia and that is where my love for lifeguarding emerged! I lifeguarded at that country club for three years before I moved here, to California, where I began lifeguarding at Whittier College for the summer! I loved lifeguarding there because they had diving boards and a very deep end which made things a bit more interesting in a day’s work! I have been lifeguarding at my local YMCA since August of last year and it has truly been awesome getting to know the patrons that spend so much of their time coming to the Y, just like me. My intentions when I guard are always to keep the people in and around the water as safe as possible. What I enjoy most about lifeguarding for private events is the closeness and respect I always receive from the hosts and guests. They’re always so grateful and kind to me for my services and that makes me very happy to do my job!

I feel accomplished and that my job was truly successful when that happens. A couple of fun facts about me is that I have a twin brother who lives in New Jersey, I can wiggle my ears and I can play the guitar.

I continued through Jr. Lifeguarding at Calabasas Swim and Rec until I was old enough to be Lifeguard certified this year. I am also a member of the ELCO water polo and swim team. I am always prepared for whatever comes my way around the water, and enjoy helping others. Outside of water sports, I enjoy drama, writing, surfing, snowboarding, guitar and mountain biking.

I started lifeguarding because I enjoy taking care of others and socializing. I have found this to job to have been one that I keep coming back to because I enjoy meeting new people and providing a safe environment for everyone. The most rewarding part of this job is knowing that I made a positive impact on a kids life and them telling me that when they grow up they wanna be just like me and that they wanna be a lifeguard too.

I took the Happy Swimmers Lifeguarding Class and have been regularly working at my local Cabana Club, but now I am at Happy Swimmers too! My intentions with being a lifeguard are to keep swimmers who want to have fun at their pools safe and allow them to have a sense of security, knowing (especially parents about their kids) that they will be watched over. My absolute favorite part of lifeguarding events is interacting with people at the pool. When I’m off duty at my Cabana Club, sometimes smaller kids will come up and talk to me, and even parents will offer the lifeguards snacks or dinner. I love the community and how being poolside is just so much fun. Outside of lifeguarding, I do a lot of music. I play cello and piano, and am part of both the Palo Alto Chamber Orchestra and the Cambrian Symphony.
I serve the Bay Area communities of Mountain View, Milpitas, Santa Clara, Los Gatos, Morgan Hill, among others.

With background knowledge in hostile and verbal environments, as well as, friendly interaction-based job positions, I truly believe I am the best for solving any standard issue.

I look forward to our future friendly encounters with Happy Swimmers. 🙂

HI!!!! My name in Rakeisha. I am a Canadian student-athlete currently finishing my degree in Biology on the medical track and playing soccer at Saint Leo University. I have been swimming since I was eight and have loved the water ever since. I have been a certified lifeguard for seven years now and have done so for camp, family outings, Saint Leo University’s pool, and at my own house. Though I am not a certified swim instructor I have taught a few kids in my community, so proper certification is something I will pursue. I understand how fun swimming can be but I also understand its dangers so I make it my business to ensure a safe environment for those who want to enjoy the water!
I am a service oriented individual who has always been eager to help those in need whether be it on the medical field or as a lay person. I am new to the lifeguard field, graduated and licensed Emergency Medical Technician in the state of Florida with a competitive swimming history.

Hi I’m Raimy! I have been a swim instructor for 4 years total and a certified WSI (Water Safety Instructor) for 2 years. I love teaching swim lessons because it is such an important skill to learn in life and truly saves so many lives. I am very patient with new and/or scared swimmers. At a young age, I was a very fearful child in the water myself. I can empathize with a child who may be fearful and work past their uncertainties and get them swimming as quickly as possible!
I have 4 years of lifeguarding experience, anywhere from private pool parties to private swim lessons. I love lifeguarding for special events, because it gives every parent who may have a young swimmer, peace of mind knowing there is an extra set of eyes making sure their child is safe in and around a pool!

A little bit about Christine: After working as an LAPD scientific investigator for 11 years I transitioned to completing my M.S. degree in Chemistry then followed a teaching and research path in university academics for several years. I then moved to Hawaii in 2008 where I first joined the JTA CPR/ Happy Swimmers team as a CPR/First Aid instructor. During these years I had always made a priority in volunteerism being active in the National Ski Patrol and the USC Catalina Hyperbaric Chamber. Today I reside in Houston and presently support Help America Today turning elementary aged kids into the volunteers of tomorrow through grassroots community service projects. My passion for teaching and making a positive impact on our society is why I love teaching CPR and First Aid, particularly for those never certified. I am proud to now expand into the administrative staff of the company and be a part of turning children into happy swimmers.
I’m your Region’s Manager of Swim Instructors. Contact me through the website contact form, for anything swim instructor related once swim lessons have begun with your instructor.
A little more about me… I’ve been actively teaching swim lessons for six years and enjoy this more than any other profession I’ve ever been involved in. There is nothing better than doing what you love for a living and being able to teach and share it with others. I get to teach a child; learn life long skills that last a life time, as well as safety and the joy of the water. I’m always amazed at how students learn so much in a short period of time. It is also fun to watch them “Strut Their Stuff” when they become confident at what they have learned. I started swimming at age 3 and have never enjoyed anything more than the water. I have been a competitive swimmer, PADI diver and Coast Guard Auxiliary member for many years. Welcome to Happy Swimmers! I am happy to help.
I am a certified lifeguard and I love making your events as fun and safe as possible! I’ve been a competitive swimmer since I was six, and have tons of experience working with kids. I can’t wait to help you out at your next event!

I started lifeguarding at a summer camp I have been going to for 8 years. Gold Arrow Camp is in the Fresno area on Huntington and Shaver lake. I lifeguarded young children ages 7-15 on the doc at the lake. I have always wanted to be a lifeguard mainly because I think it is an amazing experience but also because you get to call yourself someone that could potentially save a life if necessary. I like Lifeguarding because it uses all of my strengths such as being organized, focussed, while still having a great time in the water. A fun fact about myself is that I learned how to swim when I was 2 years old, I play softball, and I love food from all over the world (I once ate a camel burger in Morocco). Overall I think Lifeguarding is so much fun and I love it.
I serve the LA communities of Beverly Hills, Brentwood, Westwood, Bel Air, among others.
Since I was a child I was always close to the water, in my adolescence I spent three years in the national swimming school in Cuba, as swimming instructor since 1996 I worked several summers in Cuba. In 2007 I went to live in Spain where I also worked as a swimming instructor in 2012 I went to live in Sardinia, Italy where I worked as a private swimming instructor for three years, I like this job because swimming is the most complete sport, it is also very important to learn to swim by your own security, there is a risk of death by drowning very high in the world, I personally think that all people should know how to swim or know how to be safe in an aquatic environment
As a lifeguard I worked two summers in Cuba, before starting in the university, where I studied pedagogy in appreciation of art. In 2007 I went to live in Spain where I also work as a lifeguard in 2012. I like lifeguarding because there is a lot of responsibility in safety of clients at beaches or pools, I like to know that I am able to react in a stressful situation, each situation is different in each place, the work dynamics are fun and also very serious
I have been lifeguarding for 1 year with Happy Swimmers and 2 years with The City of Mesa Parks and Rec. What I like most about lifeguarding is meeting new people and having fun with kids. One fun fact about me is that I am training to become a student pilot out of Falcon Field Airport.

After 18 years falling in and out of love with the swimming, nothing I find rewrites the influence the water has had on me. It’s an effective, sustainable exercise people can spend their entire lives enjoying. My intention as a lifeguard is to protect swimming enthusiasts from mistakes and, if necessary, rescue them from consequence. Fun fact: I share a name with the Urdu word for beach, shoreline, coastline, riverbank…essentially wherever water meets earth.
I serve the Los Angeles and Ventura communities of Thousand Oaks, Agoura Hills, Calabasas, Encino, among others.

Hello, my name is Samantha Tu and I’ve been a lifeguard and swim instructor for 3 years and a Lifeguard Instructor for 1 year.

Once I became old enough to join a local junior lifeguarding program at the community center, I jumped right into that and began learning how to teach lessons and save lives. My hobbies include helping others, swimming, water polo, and cooking.
Samantha typically serves areas like Milpitas, San Jose, Fremont, and even the City and Napa–she gets around!

Hi, my name is Sarah Isela! There is a quote about lifeguards that says, “A lifeguard is like a storm shelter, you may never need it, but if you do it can be a lifesaver.” During my five years of lifeguarding, I have been the storm shelter and lifesaver to countless people. My 5 year lifeguarding career began in 2013, when I received my American Red Cross Lifeguard certification. Since then, I have gained an incredible amount of experience lifeguarding every year: 2013-2015 at an indoor aquatic center (North Arundel Aquatic Center), and 2015-current (Summer 2018) as the beach “Baywatch” of Sandy Point State Park. When I lifeguard, I work to the best of my ability to ensure the safety of every child/ swimmer/ patron. If the time comes that I must become your “lifesaver,” you are in good hands. I have handled over 100 water assists, as well as four serious water rescues over the past five years. I have even received the Superintendent’s Award from the Natural Resources Police (NRP) for assisting in a water rescue of 5 people from a jet skiing accident in the Chesapeake Bay.

I have been teaching swim lessons for about 8 years now for children as well as adults. I love being in the water and feeling safe and comfortable and only want the same for my clients. I have experience working with special needs children as well as older adults who are fearful or reluctant to get into the water. I am extremely patient and believe in working in baby steps if necessary to get my swimmers to achieve their goals!
I have been a lifeguard for two years now. My intention when it comes to lifeguarding is to maintain a safe and fun swimming environment. What I enjoy most about Lifeguarding is being out in the sun with the smell of sunscreen and watching people have a great time in the water!
I’ve been lifeguarding for 5 years, since I was 16, and have loved it since I started! I worked as a camp counselor and lifeguarded for the camp members. I also worked at a beach club this past summer, lifeguarding at the pool! I hope to provide a safe environment where kids can swim and have fun without having to worry about their safety! I love meeting new people, so lifeguarding events allows me to do so!

I consistently train to improve my speed while swimming to ensure my optimal rescue time.
Hello, my name is Sean Snyder and I want to share with you why I love being a lifeguard. First, and most importantly, I love the experiences I’ve had protecting and serving others. Whether it’s making sure the chairs are clean or saving a kids life in the water you always feel the appreciation for your efforts. Secondly, I’ve already saved a life and I can’t think of any better way to live than by making others feel safe. Knowing that a person is moving forward in life because I performed my job correctly is an amazing feeling. Third, my knowledge is useful outside of my profession and it makes my family and friends feel safer, what a bonus! I carry my CPR mask with me almost everywhere I go just in case a situation may arise elsewhere. You never know when your training may be needed. Finally, it is the best job I’ve ever had and I am proud of the work I do. Honestly, I couldn’t ask for more.

Serving the areas surrounding San Francisco, Daly City, Huntington Beach, Newport Beach for 3 years as a lifeguard.
I started Lifeguarding in high school at age 16 for the City of Huntington Beach and became a Water Safety Instructor as well. After 2 years, I moved to San Francisco for college and became a Lifeguard and Safety Officer for the Waterpolo team at my school. Each summer I go back to Huntington Beach and work for the Hyatt Regency Resort & Spa as a Lifeguard. I really enjoy Lifeguarding, especially the rewarding feeling that you get when you actually do need to help someone! Something that sets me apart from other Lifeguards is the fact that when I’m not teaching swim lessons or lifeguarding, I’m usually teaching surf lessons or surfing myself!
I have had one summer of experience of lifeguarding. I love working at parties and making sure kids are safe while having fun. I like interacting with kids and starting pool games. I am a swimmer and am the expert at sharks and minos.

I am also fluent in Armenian and Farsi
Areas I commonly serve: Los Angeles, pasadena, Encino, Studio City
Lifeguarding isn’t just any job, it’s an opportunity to protect lives. I am blessed to have an opportunity like this and the second I was certified and began working I loved it. I have been a lifeguard for a year and I love lifeguarding events because I am able to prevent anything bad that could potentially happen. It feels good to know that I am able to save lives. I love anything related to swimming or water like pool parties, the beach, or just swimming laps.

The 5 years worth of experience at luxury residential buildings, has exposed me to a variety of individuals of all backgrounds.

Lifeguarding allows me to constantly learn, expose myself to the new and striving for the spontaneous. “Carpe diem”

Hi, I’m Sydney and I’m currently a sophomore at The University of Texas at Austin. Being by the water is my favorite place to be during the hot summers in Texas. I was a competitive swimmer for 14 years and still enjoy swimming laps in my free time.
For the past five summers, I have been a private and group swim instructor for ages 3 to 20. I have a wide spectrum of experience from children who are afraid to get in the water to competitive swimmers who need stroke instruction.
I enjoy building trust with the children I’ve taught and allowing them to progress into confident swimmers. I believe encouragement goes a long way and try to make the learning process as enjoyable as swimming is to me!
For the past five summers, I’ve lifeguarded at a city pool and for private events. When life guarding, I work to maintain a fun and safe environment for everyone inside and around the pool.
Because I am constantly scanning the pool and assessing the swimmers abilities, I saved lives each summer that I was working and prevented more accidents by enforcing the rules of the pool as well as general pool safety procedures. Last summer I was head life guard for our staff before retiring from my hometown pool. I take pride in my job and strive to continue to be a dependable life guard.

I became a lifeguard in 2013 and have loved it ever since! For two years (2013-2014) I worked as a lifeguard in the Summer and late Fall at Oakwell Farms neighborhood pool. Last summer (2015) I worked briefly as a lifeguard at Inwood Hallow neighborhood pool as a sub, and then moved onto a full time job at Fort Sam Houston Outdoor Aquatic Center. Towards the end of the summer last year, I was a lifeguard for kids’ birthday parties. My intention for lifeguarding this summer is to provide safety, protection, and a positive attitude for the people I will be serving. I love meeting and interacting with new people, which is my favorite thing about lifeguarding private events.
I have been teaching swim lessons for roughly a year now under Fort Sam Houston outdoor aquatic center. Last summer I had 17 swim students ranging from the ages of 3-7 and one 12 year old. I love teaching swim lessons because it is a unique opportunity to grow closer to kids of all ages in a fun and educational environment. I love kids, I have had the pleasure of babysitting my nieces & nephews as well as neighbors kids over the past 5 years. Lastly, I have a very flexible schedule and a friendly, nurturing, and patient personality.
I have been a swim instructor for two years. I have taught numerous people from infants, kids, teens, adults and even tri-atheletes. Many swimmers I have recently worked with have been the younger kids – infant to four or five – and have picked up a little bit of a specialty working with those who are special needs kids.
I have been an EMT and a lifeguard for three and a half years, I have worked on the beach front for a school in Southern California and at multiple pools in SoCal, and work as a standby EMT lifeguard for special events.

Hi, my name is Travis! I’ve been doing private swim lessons for 3 years now working with around 15-20 kids ranging from ages 4-13. I think one of the things that make me special is my ability to connect with children and get them involved and happy with being in the water. The part I like most about teaching swim lessons is seeing the face of a child light up when they do something they thought was impossible. That feeling is completely unique, I also love that I’m influencing the kids in a positive way for the rest of their life. I worked as an AVID tutor at the high school and middle school level for 3 years as well! As you can probably tell I really love to teach!
I’ve always loved swimming! The idea of becoming a lifeguard seemed like a dream! Now that I’m finally certified I’m excited to do my best and to ensure the safety of all clientele. A fun fact about me is that I learned how to swim at the age of 4 and I’ve been swimming ever since. I even ended up competing at a state level on my high school swim team!

Swim Instructor Bio:
I have been teaching swim lessons for the last 6 years and continue to do so. I have taught lessons at the community pool, for local swim teams, and for Happy Swimmers. I am currently the head coach of Indian Hills Swim Team in Jurupa Valley. I have been a swimmer for 17 years and my specialty is backstroke. I swam for CBU for all four years and my best events were the 50, 100, 200 back, 50 and 100 free, and the 200 and 400 IM. I absolutely love passing my knowledge down to the next generation, especially in the regards of competition. I do believe that EVERYONE should be water safe, but it is my goal to pass on my love of this growing sport.
I first began as a small community pool guard for one year. I then began working for my local school district and assisting at local parties of friends. I took a break from guarding to focus more on lessons and coaching swim until I began working for Happy Swimmers, whom I have happily worked with for the last 3 years. My number one goal in guarding is safety. I believe if an issue can be dealt with or addressed before it happens, it is far less likely to occur. The best thing about any job is interacting with the children. Parties are intended to be fun and I fully encourage it as long as it is safe.

I’ve been an Australian Bondi Surf Lifesaver since 2008 with a certification in Rescue Boat lifesaving. I am passionate about first aid and survival skills and when I’m lifeguarding I pride myself on safety and prevention.

One of my favorite things about guarding for events is seeing all of the varied celebrations, it is certainly a treat to be able to see so many different family and cultural traditions!
When its too cold for the pool I love to ski and work as a ski instructor and on the ski patrol at nearby resorts.
Some of the communities I serve include:Fairfax, Potomac, Arlington, McLean, Great Falls
I have 3 years of lifeguard experience.
I started teaching swim lessons when I was 16, since I had just learned how to swim I understand the fear of the water. Not only that but with 4 years of experience now I can confidently say I can teach children how to relax in the water and then take it further from there. I want to be able to build a strong foundation in swimming with anyone I teach, and watch as it blossoms into a hobby or even a passion. A fun fact was that just last summer I two of the seven year old kids I had qualified for TAAF State Championship.
I’m looking to make an impact on the life’s of the people I meet. I want to be able to provide not only a fun but safe environment for everyone this summer. I enjoy the opportunity to be a role model for not only what a lifeguard should be, but what everyone should be in the water. Funny enough I didn’t learn how to swim in till I was 15 and now the water is a second home for me.
I serve the Dallas-Fort Worth communities of Dallas, Forth Worth, Arlington, South lake, and Richardson, among others.
Hello! My names Victoria and I have been teaching kids to swim for over 3 years. Prior to swim instructing I was swimming at the competitive level for over 10 years. I love teaching kids of all ages and my experience ranges from teaching ages 4 months to adults. In my experience the earlier kids start the better, the water is waiting! I love teaching kids both the technical aspects of the strokes and also just helping them get comfortable in the water. Teaching swim lessons is so rewarding to me because I know I’m helping someone learn such an important life skill. A little fun fact about me is that I love to travel the world!

I been teaching Swim Lesson for around 4 years already using Red Cross guideline techniques. A lot of the times I use my own imagination in order to have fun an an effective learning experience. Some of my background experience touched special children that needed extra help in order to remain confident in water.
Every weekend in one of the pools I’ve been working in weve scheduled event parties with usually families or a group of people (avg. 50) renting the pool. Usually we had to decorate the pool in one specific theme so everyone will have fun. In some cases a lot of kids were involved so we had to be extra prepared.

10 years swim instructor experience. I began swim instructing while working at summer camp working with young kids up through adults attending camps for the blind. Whether they’re a first time swimmer or an advanced swimmer, I love to see people become more comfortable in the water, challenge themselves to improve their skills, and enjoy the freedom and feel of the water.
18 years lifeguarding experience. My lifeguarding career started with summer camp waterfront. Not much can beat helping people of all ages and capabilities safely enjoy the lake activities for the summer. Camp provided a wide range of lifeguard leadership from water ski shows and group water games, to canoeing rivers and kayaking to islands, and to blobs and rope swings. As a result, I lifeguard preventatively so that people can continue to enjoy the activities to the fullest. Waterfront Lifeguarding and Scuba certified.

After moving to Washington, DC, I began working at the American University aquatic center where I was eventually promoted to Head Lifeguard of Swim Instructors. In this position, I helped to manage and teach the swim lessons run through AU Recreation and Fitness. The most rewarding part of teaching swim lessons would have to be watching the improvement and excitement of the student grow. My passion is to see a world where everyone can feel safe and have fun in the water!
I started lifeguarding at my community pool the summer before my junior year of high school. Five years have passed and I have worked at a variety of pools and events for communities, families, and high profile clients too.

I serve the Los Angeles & Orange County communities of Pasadena Area, West LA, San Fernando Valley, among others.
I spent 5 summer seasons as a lifeguard in San Diego. Lifeguarding is a very serious job because I have the duty to act in a life threatening situation. As serious as it is, lifeguarding is also a very rewarding job where I can share my water safety knowledge with children and parents while also being a role model to those I protect. I also have extensive experience with bathroom accidents in the pool so no need to worry!
I have supervised and taught swim and water polo to children ages 4-13 at a sports camp for a summer. I have played water polo for 9 years and have been swimming since I was 4. I consider myself a strong swimmer and will be ready to handle any emergency. My first priority would be the safety of all children and second would be their ability to have fun.
I serve the Los Angeles communities of Pasadena, La Cañada Flintridge, Glendale, Arcadia, among others.
Hi, I’m Wyatt! I have swum competitively for six years and have graduated high school. I have only just begun my lifeguarding career with the intention of ensuring that people can enjoy the water in a fun and safe environment. The water has been good to me, and I firmly believe that everyone should not only know how to swim, but also understand that the water is nothing to be afraid of.
I serve the Los Angeles communities of Woodland Hills, Malibu, Calabasas, Santa Clarita, among others.
Having been a lifeguard at my local YMCA, I believe that I am good at what I do, and I intend to expand my lifeguarding experience to a wider variety of areas. I enjoy the social aspects of lifeguarding–meeting new people and learning from their past experiences. I will be starting medical school later this summer, so this is my final year to make my lifeguarding experience count!
I serve the Atlanta communities of Marietta, Kennesaw, Sandy Springs, Roswell, among others.
Swim Instructor Bio:
I have been teaching at a swim school for three years. My students ranged in age from 2-15, as well as adults as old as 70. My freshman year in college I was honored to be able to teach adults with both mental and physical disabilities. Some of which had never been in a swimming pool. I really enjoy making a difference in peoples lives and possibly saving lives.
I am American Red Cross certified in lifeguarding, first aid, CPR, and AED, and have been the sole lifeguard on duty for camps as well private parties for four years now. While lifeguarding, my goal is to provide a safe environment that will ensure that people of all ages are able to enjoy their swimming and water experience. Lifeguarding allows me to enjoy and appreciate the outdoors while watching people having fun. A fun fact, I like to collect crystals and watch old classic movies.
Common areas I serve among others: Woodland Hills, Calabasas, Agoura Hills, Westlake, Thousand Oaks, Simi Valley, Malibu
I am currently a lifeguard for an upper class swim and racquet club as well as Happy Swimmers. This constant exposure to lifeguarding keeps me sharp on the necessary skills to keep the pool safe. I enjoy swimming, helping others and hope to get my EMT certification next Spring.
Serving the general areas of San Jose, Saratoga, Los Gatos, Los Altos and traveling throughout the Bay Area.
I have been lifeguard at Tigertail Lake Recreation Center for 1 year. I knew the minute I learned the first lifeguarding technique that I would forever wear the white cross on my chest. I love the aspect of protection when it comes to lifeguarding because you’re essentially a guardian angel watching over everyone. Fun Fact: I have Nordic (Viking) blood in me!
I serve the Miami/ Fort Lauderdale communities of Fort Lauderdale proper, Boca Raton, Delray, Deerfield, among others.
I’ve been a lifeguard for over a year. Most of that time has been watching a kids pool with a slide at a resort. My favorite part of lifeguarding is seeing everyone have a good time, and being there to keep everyone safe. I enjoy working with kids. My experience with kids includes, babysitting, teaching kids how to read at school, giving reviews sessions for the 5th grade science STARR test, being a teacher’s aide, and working a fun, “kid Zone” with bounce houses, mini golf, and all kinds of other fun games.
I serve the Austin area communities of Austin, Buda, Bee Cave, and Pfluggerville, among others.
Hi! This is my third year lifeguarding and I am lifeguard/CPR/first aid, pool operator, and NOCTI certified. I started out as a regular lifeguard and eventually became manager at my pool. I absolutely love this job and interacting with people of all ages. I have worked with children from pre-school to high school, including kids with special needs. I am currently a pre-medicine student at VCU with the goal of becoming a trauma doctor.
5 years experience, communities served like Point Loma, La Jolla, Carmel Valley, Del Mar
Water is my life! I have experience teaching swim lessons (levels ranging from mommy& me to coaching swim team), lifeguarding and competitive swimming. I absolutely love being anywhere near the pool or the ocean! I am inspired to promote fun in the water with an emphasis on water safety practices. I have a special passion for teaching, as I am currently finishing my credentials to be a kindergarten teacher. Teaching has taught me patience and attentiveness which is an instrumental component of serving my duties as a lifeguard to my best ability.
Extra certifications, specialties: Waterfront/Lake certified lifeguard; Mommy and Me special training.

Yumi and Jere were wonderful lifeguards when they guarded our end of year pool party on Wednesday June 11 from 11-2. They were in touch with me, were on time and prepared, and were very responsible and knowledgeable. I was so happy to be able to put two adults in charge of our fourth grade class party.
Based on my experience with Yumi Temple and her cohort Jere, I would highly recommend Happy Swimmers.
Thank you for a wonderful experience. So happy we used your business.
Hi Jenn.. wow today was really scary. I had to use my first aid skills on my mom! We work at the same preschool & she had an allergic reaction & went into shock! I did everything I remembered until the paramedics came.. I really can’t thank you enough for teaching me everything I needed to know!
Everything about my experience with Happy Swimmers has been amazing! From the scheduling to the fantastic teacher they sent for my 5 and 6 year old. The instructor, Emma, had to contend with 2 very different personalities along with 2 different levels of swimming experience. She was more than equipped to deal with that and gave each child unparalleled support, encouragement and instruction. I highly recommend this service to all parents that want to give their child a great experience in being water safe!
We have three kids ages 7, 4, and 2 & 1/2. This was our second year having Happy Swimmers, with instructor Trisha Commons, come teach our kids (the two oldest) to swim. I tried another company the year before I tried Happy Swimmers and although the kids learned swim safety, they were bored and did not learn how to enjoy the pool. Trisha got our son, who did not really like swimming, having fun and by the end of last year could swim the entire length of the pool on his own.
Trisha is great with the kids and is flexible in her teaching style to work with different personalities. She is able to get the kids confident in their abilities and teaches them how to swim, but also teaches them how to have fun! I will definitely be asking Happy Swimmers and Trisha to teach the kids again next year.
I have a toddler and a pool and wanted to make sure my son learned water safety. After taking some group classes last summer, I knew I wanted more one-on-one attention at our home. This summer I reviewed several in-home companies and was impressed with Happy Swimmers approach of water safety.
Trish worked with my stubborn 2-yr old 2-3 times a week. Within the first lesson he knew how to climb out of the pool and to ask permission before getting in. Although our goal was to get him water comfortable more than “swimming”, he indeed learned to swim within a few weeks. We extended our lessons and really appreciated Trish’s approach. We will sign up again next summer. Many of our friends with children happened to be present on several lessons and I expect they will also sign up next summer as well.
Hired a happy swimmers for private life guard for a party for over 200 people at my house. The lifeguard was great. She called to confirm before, came on time, and stayed later then we originally signed up because the party went over. She also showed up on time despite there being a black out that because of storms the day before. I highly recommend Happy Swimmers.
