Here’s a little about us…

Happy Swimmers private lifeguard service began in 1991 in Los Angeles, and over the 20+ years, we’ve expanded to many Southwest cities, only able to do so because of our solid reputation in each area we serve. Our aim is to be your hired professional eyes for your party, truly preventing many of the drowning and near drowning accidents we’ve all witnessed in the news. In 2009 we opened in Austin and Houston, 2011 in Dallas and now San Antonio! We are the largest private event lifeguard service in the country and dare I then say, the largest in Texas!

4 years experience.  General areas I can serve: San Antonio, San Marcos, Austin, College Station

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.

Oscar E. Fumero Gonzalez, Lifeguard for Hire

Houston

I have 2 years lifeguard experience.

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. Fun facts about me, I did martial arts for 5 years, I’m currently ranked 57th in the nation for weightlifting, I’m a DJ, and I’m a personal trainer.

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 have worked for City of Glendale and Los Angeles County as a lifeguard and I am currently working for city of Pasadena as a senior lifeguard. something interesting about me is that although I am a very good swimmer and a lifeguard, I am actually scared of the ocean, maybe for the fact that I do not know whats under the water since I can not see it . I am also fluent in Armenian and Farsi

Teresa Harkins, Swim Instructor, Lifeguard

San Antonio

General Areas I serve: San Antonio, Cibilo, Shertz, New Braunfels

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.
