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 🙂

Claire Fulkerson, Lifeguard

Arlington, 4 years experience guarding!

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!

Drew Winsauer, Lifeguard, LGI

Hey guys my name is Drew and I’m currently studying genetics at the University of Georgia. I’ve been a lifeguard for 5 years now! I lifeguarded at Pleasant Glade Pool in Grapevine, TX for 4 years and last summer I worked for Happy Swimmers USA in addition to shadowing doctors and taking summer classes. I love lifeguarding events because it’s rewarding to know that I’m providing a safe and fun family environment for our clients. In lifeguarding I believe that it’s extremely important to be alert and take care of minor issues before they ever become serious.

Katherine Hill, Lifeguard for Hire

Dallas Fort Worth

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.

Kendrick Perry, Lifeguard for Hire


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!!!

Hello! I have been teachings kiddos how to swim for the past three years and I LOVE it!! I began working for a community pool in Tarrant county and then began teaching with Happy Swimmers. I teach all ages, but 3-5 year olds are my specialty.

Lifeguarding for Happy Swimmers is the best job I have ever had! I enjoy keeping the kids (and adults) safe and having fun while everyone enjoys the party! My guard history includes summer camp for two years, community pool, and YMCA for three years. NowI guard the campus pool at Tarleton State.

Milcah Ntende, Lifeguard for Hire

Dallas, TX

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.

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.

Sean, Lifeguard for Hire


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.

I serve the Dallas-Fort Worth communities of South Lake, HEB, Grapevine/Colleyville, among others

Tanner Vig, Lifeguard for Hire

I have recently been certified as a lifeguard and I look forward to helping provide a safe atmosphere where people can have fun! What I enjoy about lifeguarding is the ability to work poolside and know that what I am doing is making a difference.

Travis Smith, Private Swim Instructor and Lifeguard


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! I also was in Boy Scouts till I was 18 and left as an Eagle Scout!

I serve the DFW communities of Dallas, Lewisville, Keller, Irving, Frisco, Grapevine, among others.


Victor, Mansfield/Irving area Lifeguard for Hire and Swim Instructor

Mansfield, TX

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.
