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!

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.

Taylor Barnard, Orlando Lifeguard for hire

Orlando, FL

Hi there! I began lifeguarding at an aquatic park two summers ago in college and have since guarded birthday parties, company gatherings, and celebrations with all ages. Although my background is not particularly lengthy, it has however been incredibly condensed with experience and passion. My utmost priority is assisting in maintaining a safe swimming environment and to do so in a fun, happy and interactive way. My intention is to convey that I take on this responsibility with great care and dedication in order for my guests to feel that they can trust me with their, and their children’s, lives. Fun little note about me, I was born and raised in South Africa up until high school :).  ~~Welcome Taylor, 🙂 owner Jenn
