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 🙂

Emily Nizberg, Lifeguard for Hire

Tulane University, New Orleans

I have 5+ years lifeguarding experience!

Hi I’m Emily and I’m a neuroscience major at Tulane University in New Orleans. During the summers I live on Long Island. I am a certified EMT in New York State. My goal is to go to medical school after I graduate.

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. To me, lifeguarding isn’t a job – rather a hobby – I get to be by a pool all the time – it’s my happy place.

I serve the New Orleans area when back at school, and in early to mid summer, the NYC Tri-State Area/ Long Island communities of Manhattan, Queens, Great Neck, and Hamptons, among others.

Erin Stickley, Lifeguard for Hire

New Orleans

I got my lifeguard certification in high school and started working at a summer camp in Yosemite called Camp Mather during the 10 week summers of 2015 and 2016. There I got tons of experience guarding both the lake and the pool at camp 6 days a week. I’ve loved all my time lifeguarding and am very excited to further continue my experience!

I serve the Greater New Orleans area during the school year, and when home in early Summer, the SF Bay Area locations of San Francisco, Penninsula, East Bay, North Bay, among others.

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.
