It is the best feeling starting with a beginner swimmer, then in some months they are able to swim on their own. I like to feel like I made a difference in someones life and I will never be forgotten. I have been teaching swim lessons just as long as I’ve been guarding, 7 years. I started with family then began working for the YMCA. I also coached a swim team for 2 years.
Fun Fact: I swam across the Boston Harbor
I grew up in the Greater Boston area, Dorchester to be specific. While my mother is petrified of the water, she made sure all her kids knew how to swim. Me being the youngest of 6, learned my swimming and guarding techniques from my siblings. At the age of 16 I began to lifeguard and I’ve been doing it since. There is a sense of comfort knowing I am in charge of peoples safety on the pool. I like to be able to prevent incidents from happening while everyone is still having fun.

Hi! My name is Aidan and I’ve been a lifeguard for 3 seasons with the City of Austin. In my opinion, it’s a dream of a summer job, because I get to be outside at the pool all day. I have so many fond memories in the water as a kid, and it makes me happy to help parents feel comfortable with their children swimming, hopefully building summer memories of their own 🙂 I currently go to school in Boston, so I’m excited to soak up some Texas heat and spend a summer doing what I love in my home city!
Hi, I’m Aidan, while I have minor experience lifeguarding thus far I am excited to pursue lifeguarding with Happy Swimmers; as I am very confident in my lifeguarding abilities. I grew up in LA and also have had my fair share of pool events, so I am so excited to keep others safe while enjoying the pool. I hope to continue on this path to become a reliable responsible lifeguard hopefully for a few years. I have already learned a lot about lifeguarding and I hope to continue learning throughout this summer and next year. A fun fact about me, I am ambidextrous which means I’m not a righty or a left; I’m both!

There is nothing more valuable than teaching a skill like swimming that will offer one a safe experience & can literally open doors to increased self-confidence & competence in any body of water—be it pool-sea-or lake. Years of coaching water polo & operating Los Angeles Jr. Lifeguard program enabled me to amass an enormous tool box of skills to help teach people of all ages to swim & handle themselves safely in the water.
As a 30 year veteran of Los Angeles County Lifeguard & Fire Dept Paramedic I know how rewarding & important maintaining a safe environment for the public & swimmers can be. Spotting & preventing danger is a learned skill that when actively applied can literally make the difference between a fun day or one wrought with tragedy. Turning people onto the stoke of water play is really a gift that should be shared with everyone.

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.
Proud Parent to a beautiful son.

I’ve lifeguarded for several different facilities both in SoCal and NorCal and enjoyed the learning experience from it!

I’m Andre, I’ve been a lifeguard 4 years now and I’ve been recertified for cpr and lifeguarding every year. I proud to say I haven’t had a single rescue due to my prevention-based lifeguarding skills all while still being able to have fun.
I started lifeguarding over a decade ago in high school and I’ve continued to lifeguard off and on since then at various facilities from indoor college campuses to crowded, outdoor public pools. As a guard I’m scanning the scene constantly, I find that being proactive can help more than anything, though I’m always ready to react to the unexpected. It’s been very rewarding to see youngsters find confidence in the water and themselves, and knowing that I’m there to protect them is something I’m proud of. Pools tend to attract the wildest of critters as well, and I find that to be a perk of the job, having wrangled everything from baby bunnies to giant centipedes.

Swim Instructor Bio:
I have been a swim instructor professionally and privately for 4 years and have coordinates swim lessons and staff at an aquatic facility for 1 year. It is a joy teaching kids how to swim and watching them progress because this is the earliest form of life-saving in my eyes. If you teach kids proper swimming and survival skills they will less likely need saving from lifeguards although still possible.
I had been a lifeguard for 3 years and managed lifeguards for 1 year. I have always enjoyed keeping kids safe in and out of the water and feel proud of my knowledge of this safety because it can help people in many situations even outside of the workplace.
This is my first year lifeguarding and I hope to be a great one and sense of security for people. I love the water. A fun fact about me is that I am on the Varsity Water Polo and Varsity Swimming teams of my high school. I hope that I will be able to make great experiences while lifeguarding!

I love lifeguarding because I feel as though the job is very important and I feel a sense of satisfaction knowing that I always try my best to keep patrons safe. My favorite thing about lifeguarding events is the change of scenery from guarding my regular city and college pool. I love learning new languages as I am currently studying spanish and portuguese. I also enjoy traveling and reading and dancing!

Hey! I’m Briza and I’ve been lifeguarding for a little over 3 years now! I have been certified in guarding both shallow and deep water. I’ve worked at many Las Vegas casinos, resorts, and water parks including The Mandalay Bay Beach and Cowabunga Bay! I absolutely love what I do and I enjoy guarding all of our wonderful happy little swimmers! I am a water treading, danger spotting, whistle blowing, life saving, lifeguard. I will always provide a safe, fun, and family environment to our clients.

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 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 enjoy lifeguarding because it is a service I can share with many people to improve the quality of their swimming or event experience.

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!

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.

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.

Hello my name is Dano (Day-Noh),
I have been Lifeguarding for close to 5 years and have always loved the water ever since I took swim lessons as a kid. My intention is to prevent any life threatening injuries while on duty and educate pool patrons about safety in or out of the water. It is a commitment of mine to engage w/ the event staff and proactively develop an appropriate EAP (emergency action plan) incase we need to activate a rescue. In addition, to keeping a safe environment it’s always fun to play some pool games and share some swimming techniques with the pool guest. Feel free to ask for an early arrival time as it’s fine if you need some help setting a few things up prior to event.
In addition to lifeguarding, I spend most of my extra time pursuing my dream as an Actor, Model and Voiceover artist. This is one of my biggest passions in life.
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.
As a Miami Beach native, I’ve been enjoying our beaches and pools since I was a baby. Because everyone would tell me I was very good with kids and so comfortable in the water, I started teaching private swimming classes. I became a Lifeguard in 2015 and a Water Safety Instructor in 2016. I am told I motivate my students to improve their swimming techniques and to work hard to reach their swimming goals. I particularly like to work events as I enjoy meeting new people. I have repeat parents who call me to be a lifeguard at their kids’ parties. A fun fact about me is that I am probably one of the tallest lifeguards you can hire but can relate to your child as if I were as small as them.
Serving: Plantation, Davie, Sunrise, Lauderhill, Miami, Fort Lauderdale, and Boca
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.

I have life guarded many town pools, camps, and party events for 2 years.

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. Making both the parents and children happy and safe are very important to me.

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.

Fell in love from day one. I take pride in providing and maintaining a safe environment, as well as enjoy seeing people have lots of fun!

I serve the San Diego metro area and communities of La Jolla, Encinitas, Rancho Bernardo, and Poway, among others.
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.

15 years swim lesson teaching experience! Go Glori!
Some of the communities I serve:Houston, Bellaire, Katy, Sugar Land
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.
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.
Hello, my name is Hannah and I have been a lifeguard for six years as well as a pool manager for two years! I started swimming competitively when I was five years old (hard to believe that that was 16 years ago!) and I am passionate about sharing my love of the water by ensuring that it is safe and fun for all those who want to enjoy it! I am also a nursing student at the moment (one more year and I will have my BSN and RN degrees) and love using my knowledge to make extra-sure that everyone is safe and having a blast at whatever event is occurring. I love lifeguarding events: I am a big people-person, I love the outdoors, and I love the water! I want to make sure whichever event I am invited to I can help the event run smoothly as well as make it enjoyable for all parties present. A fun fact about me: I just got back from 3 months in South Africa working in clinics and going on adventures, so if you want to see cool photos and videos of shark cage diving, bungee jumping and safaris, I would love to share!
I love teaching people how to swim! I have taught swim lessons for six years excluding my own personal experience with swim. I have taught between the age ranges of 6 months to 84 years old, so I am comfortable with teaching just about everything! I can teach the basics of strokes, refinement of stroke technique, as well as simply getting comfortable in the water and learning how to swim and be safe in water for the first time! Swim lessons hold a special place in my heart because I would never be who I am today if I did not having amazing instructors help me not only gain skills swimming but also making me feel comfortable with my abilities as well as gain confidence. Fun fact about me: my favorite stroke is backstroke, and my favorite race was the 200 meter back– not a popular favorite but loads of fun to me!
Serving: Sacramento, Granite Bay, Carmichael, Folsom

Hi I’m Heather! Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve loved swimming! I swam for my country club in the summers, as well as for my school, Greenwich Academy, in middle school. I was a lifeguard at Riverside Yacht Club two summers ago and loved it! In addition to maintaining safety in and around the pool, I loved getting to know the kids who would come to the pool everyday. I also have lifeguarded a private birthday party for the family I babysit. I will be attending NYU this fall as a freshman, majoring in Hospitality and Tourism. I love theatre and have been in many plays at my school. Also, I’ve played on the varsity tennis team for my school for the past four years. I love dogs and my favorite food is nutella! I look forward to making your private event safe and unforgettable!
Serving: Greenwich, Rye, Old Greenwich, Stamford
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 serve the San Diego communities of Imperial Beach, Chula vista, La jolla, Coronado, Del Mar, downtown San Diego, La mesa, East lake, mission valley, among others.

Serving: Pasadena, Sierra Madre, Arcadia, Monrovia
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. As a guard I intend to create a safe yet fun environment for those who are participating in aquatic related activities. Seeing people laugh and create memories in these environments, while also being safe, is what I enjoy most about lifeguarding.
I serve the South Florida communities of Kendall Area, Doral, Homestead, among others.
Former YMCA and Lifetime swim instructor with 5 years of teaching experience. I was also on a competitive swimming from the age of 7 to 15 until my new calling came; lifeguarding. I have experience with special needs children, adults, infants and everything in between. Every one of my students brought out the inner child in me because learning to swim is fun! We can both make this learning experience something unforgettable! Ask me about my songs I sing to my student!!!
Take nothing but memories, leave nothing but footprints, kill nothing but time. Everyone’s life is precious. Former competitive swimmer and also experience assisting at a daycare for 10+ years naturally put me in a place of lifeguard. Water safety is my priority over everything!

I have been a lifeguard and swim instructor for 5 years.
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.
Common areas I serve: San Jose, Palo Alto, Mountain View, Los Altos

I serve the Washington DC metro communities of Bethesda, Mclean, Potomac, Chevy Chase, among others.
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.
I serve the OC range County communities of Mission Viejo, Rancho Santa Margarita, Aliso Viejo, Laguna Niguel, Lake Forest, among others.
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.
Greetings, I’m Arthur! I have been a Lifeguard and Swim Instructor for over 25 years.
I’m from Chicago. I’ve had a beautiful relationship with the water since I was a child. I was on the swim team in high school and the water polo club in my neighborhood park where I first learned to swim as a child. Years later at that same park I became a Lifeguard for the Chicago Park District. I later lifeguarded and became a Swim Instructor at Richard J Daley College and also at the YMCA in Illinois and in Hollywood, California. Since 2002 I’ve been a Behavior Specialist, Lifeguard, Water Safety Instructor and CPR Instructor at a non public school in Cheviot Hills (West LA). I work with emotionally disturbed children who are diagnosed with Autism, bipolar disorder, ADHD and a host of other Mental illness and psychiatric disorders. I love the water, it’s one of the most consistent things in my life. I also love the joy of someone overcoming their fear of water and finally embracing it.
Serving: West Los Angele, Westwood, Beverly Hills
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.
Home turf areas for me: Pelham, Whie Plains, New York City

I intend to improve upon my sense of responsibility and independence. What I like most about lifeguarding is working with people.

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 love to swim in my pool at home, as well as dive through the ocean waves of Santa Cruz. I also enjoy babysitting my neighbor’s children and playing with my younger cousins. My intention in lifeguarding is to protect the ones around me, as well as ensure a safe, enjoyable environment for kids of all ages.
I serve the SF Bay Area communities of Campbell, Los Gatos, San Jose, Saratoga, among others.

Serving: Los Altos, Mountain View, Palo Alto, Menlo Park
Hello! My name is Jenny! I am 18 years old and have graduated in the top 3% of North High School in downtown Phoenix. I live in Avondale and have a car, so I am willing to drive anywhere!! I love lifeguarding with all my heart; it takes me back to the days when I would spend all day in the pool. The idea of keeping your children safe just like I was kept safe during my summers of fun. I have been lifeguarding for 3 years and have 3 active saves under my belt. I love children of all ages and have an uncanny ability to entertain children all of them.
I serve the Phoenix communities of Avondale, Phoenix proper, Surprise, Scottsdale, Tempe, Mesa, Sun City, among others.
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 🙂
Common areas I serve: Houston, Humble, Spring, Jersey Village
Jeremy has a background in varsity water polo and swim so he is an excellent swimmer. On top of that his only concern when lifeguarding is the safety of those in and around the pool. He himself has been told many times by lifeguards to slow down on the pool deck. He knows the excitement that can lead to accidents, and hence how to spot and prevent them. In his free time he enjoys surfing, eating, singing, being annoying, and playing with his cat “Lil boo”.

I absolutely love lifeguarding! I started at a camp for people with various disabilities and ages while I was doing my internship. I am currently in college studying recreational therapy. After my internship I started working as a lifeguard at Florida International University’s pool. I am great with children. I used to be a gymnastic coach for children ranging from 4-16 years old. I am a confident lifeguard that is not anxious about the work I do. I think the most important part of lifeguarding is prevention. I know all the signs of a distressed swimmer and I know all the situations that can result negatively. When I watch a pool I am focused on those two things. If prevention is taken seriously like I do, then a rescue or emergency situation should never take place. I love lifeguarding because it does not feel like work to me. I get to meet beautiful people and enjoy a sunny day. I look forward to lifeguarding your event!!

I’m also a Lifeguard Instructor and CPR Instructor for Happy Swimmers, based in Southern California but I also teach in the Bay Area from time to time.
Lifeguarding was my first job in high school and I was hooked, I knew helping others is what I wanted to do with my life. Lifeguarding now may be my side job but I take it just as serious as if I was at my Firefighting or EMT job. I know being around water is increases likelyhood of injury and other potential hazards. So you can expect nothing but diligence in guarding from me. I’ve been in and around water my entire life as a competitive swimmer/search and rescue man. So this jobs is my chance to relax, dip my feet in, soak up some sun and make sure everyone has a safe and fun time. That’s what I enjoy at the end of the day. Knowing all went well and everybody had a good time safely.

I have received recognition from the City of Scottsdale for excellent instructor work, and I take pride in my ability to teach kids how to swim. What I like most about teaching swim lessons is seeing the kids smile and have a good time. It feels nice to know I’m teaching a valuable life skill, and it feels even better to know the children are having a good time doing so!
I have been guarding for the past 5 years! I have experience as a lifeguard, a head lifeguard, and even as an assistant manager. I have received recognition for outstanding guarding on multiple occasions, and I really enjoy guarding overall!

Even though John is relatively new to lifeguarding, he has spent his whole life on the water; from his summers swimming at Hinckley Lake in New York to working as a sailor and musician for Princess Cruises. Last summer (2018) he worked as a lifeguard at Healey Point where he says, “encouraging young swimmers to overcome their fear of jumping off the diving board was the best part of my job. It’s such an exhilarating and triumphant experience and it’s apparent in their smiles.” When John is not on the lifeguard stand, he’s on a different stand entirely; directing orchestras and bands.
Serving: Maryland, Virginia, Washington DC
John has been a lifeguard for the past ten years. Originally from Philadelphia, John followed the seasons to be a year-round lifeguard.

My name is Joielle but generally people mispronounce my name so people generally call me Joi. For 8 years I swam competitively, but I now work as a very charismatic lifeguard, with 3 years experience. I genuinely enjoy people, like to entertain, and keep a smile on everyone’s face. I like to keep work professional, especially since I am in the job of saving lives; however, you will never catch me uptight. I hope as a lifeguard I can bring some “Joi” to the party.

I love working with kids and always keep water safety as my top priority.

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.

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 first learned how to swim when I was 5-years-old, jumping into the pool right after my older brothers. Since then, I have been a competitive swimmer on my high school swim team and club swim team.
I began teaching lessons at 15, working with children as young as 2 in group and private settings, as well as adults. My favorite lessons were with special needs children with disabilities like autism, down syndrome and ADHD. I believe that every child is different, so there is not right or wrong way to learn – I do my best to adjust my teaching to the individual.
With my 4 years as a Summer league swim coach, I am knowledgable on instructing any level of swimmers – from those just learning how to blow bubbles and floating to advanced swimmers looking to learn how to dive, flip turn and perform proper stroke technique. Above all else, I make sure the learning process is fun and everyone is smiling at the end of the day!
My dream job as a child was to lifeguard at my local neighborhood pool, the place where I spent every Summer growing up. I began working here at 15-years-old, and returned every Summer for 5 years as a lifeguard, swim instructor, pool manager and swim coach.
Since beginning my college career at the University of Texas at Austin, I have lifeguarded for the RecSports Aquatics center. After working here for 3 years, I have been promoted to headguard as well as received my lifeguard instructor certification.
With my years as a Summer league swim coach, I have endless patience, pool games and compassion for working with kids. While my priority is always safety, I’d be more than happy to lead races, sharks and minnows, pigeon, categories… the list goes on!

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 began life-guarding when I was just 15 years old. Since then, I have worked for my community, college and even Aquatica as a full time lifeguard for almost 5 years. Now, I am a middle school teacher with a family and a young child.
Home base areas I serve: Clermont, Wintergarden, Dr. Phillips, Windermere and all of greater Orlando.

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 have been a lifeguard for the past year, and before I become a guard I always wanted to get certified. When I was younger, I use to think that the lifeguards at the pool were so cool and I wanted to be just like them.

Hi! My name is Lila. I’ve been an ocean and pool lifeguard for 5 years, and did junior lifeguard programs every summer before that since the age of 9. I love being near any body of water.

As a life-long water lover and former competitive swimmer, I’ve taught all-aged kids how to swim (pools, lakes, rivers and ocean) prior to becoming a professional swim instructor. Raised in Orange County, California/Costa Mesa resident and a mother of two grown children, my passion and joy over the years have been extremely rewarding. I celebrate with my students as we work together to conquer their fears and coach them to success in reaching goals of a strong, safer swimmer. I provide self-rescuing skills that they will carry with them throughout their lifetime! My approach is simple: build trust, teach in a loving, nurturing, fun and encouraging environment with an eye toward a new challenge and goal with each lesson. I am a Certified Lifeguard, including CPR/AED/First Aid training. Certified Paralegal (I left the corporate legal arena to pursue my life’s passion = saving lives!) “Life is as GRAND as you make it”

After graduating college, I served a year in AmeriCorps teaching literacy in an elementary school, and I still found myself guarding on the weekends!

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.
Before moving to California 6 years ago I was living in the Utila, Honduras. I trained to become a rescue diver followed by becoming open water scuba dive instructor for PADI. When I moved to California I started to work with Happy Swimmers while I was teaching scuba diving and training LA city firefighters for underwater rescues. I enjoy working as a private lifeguard with happy swimmers, the events are fun, the people are nice and it’s a perfect side hustle. Always a good way to make extra cash and meet new people. I have had experience in the past with rescues, and enjoy knowing I have the skills and confidence to take the proper action in an emergency.

This will be my 4th summer as a Swim Instructor! I previously instructed at Burlingame Aquatics Club, where I taught both kids aging from 6 months to 16-17 years old and adults! I have worked with all levels of swim experience, so I am well-versed in how to foster the best learning environment and how to find the best approach to teach with–with all different types and levels of swimmers! I swam competitively for 5 years (100 backstroke is my favorite!), so I make sure to always teach the proper technique and with the goal of getting my students to where they would have the proper technique for that kind of swimming if they ever wanted to join a team. I value patience, positive reinforcement, and goal-setting! I love to see that ah-ha moment when one of my students finally succeeds in a particularly hard area–that big smile is why I love to teach! I hope to work with you or your children soon and see those big smiles!
This will be my 4th summer working as a lifeguard both extensively in the Bay Area and in New York City. Previously, I have worked at Burlingame Aquatics Club both as a lifeguard, head lifeguard, camp counselor, and swim instructor. I just finished my first year at NYU, where I guarded as well. I pride myself both on my professionalism and on the quality of service I bring to her guarding. I seek to maintain safety while promoting fun and learning both in the pool and on deck, and I strive to be a positive and reassuring presence for both the kids and for the parents!

Being a natural Floridian I have been swimming since I was five. That led me to swim competitively for over 8 years.

Serving: Denver, Colorado Springs, Boulder. Aspen
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.
I’ve been a lifeguard, swim lesson instructor, and swim coach on and off for the past six years. I come from a family of swimmers and spent so many days as a kid at the local pool that it feels like I grew up there.

I serve the Orlando/Tampa communities of Apopka, Altamonte, Orlando & Tampa proper, among others.
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 have over 11 years of lifeguarding experience, working with youth of all ages, as well as adults. I have also worked with youth and adults with developmental disabilities.

I have been a lifeguard since I was in high school and liked the idea of being someone’s “hero” in severe situations.

I serve the Orange County communities of Irvine, rancho santa margarita, South LA, and Oceanside, among others.
I love the ocean, whether it’s swimming, snorkeling, surfing, or conservation, everything about it is great to me. I love spending time in and around the water, and it is my responsibility and obligation to make sure that people are safe when enjoying themselves around water, whether it’s a pool or the ocean. I became a lifeguard to help save lives and prevent injury whenever I can, and I intend to do so to the best at my ability on or off duty. Thank you!

Hi, my name is Micah Wong. I enjoy lifeguarding, I like being in this type of background. I am also a student in college. I am currently enrolled in the fire and emergency response program at HCC. 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 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.

“If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.” – John Quincy Adams
Hey there! I have been swimming since I could walk, definitely making me a fish out of water. Getting in the water has to be one the best feelings, both mentally and physically.

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 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.
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!
Hi my name is Nick and I am a Florida native with a great Jamaican heritage. The reason that I first got into lifeguarding was because I got a summer job at a sleep away summer camp. I remember being pretty nervous my first couple times guarding. However, from that experience my confidence grew and after 4 years of that, I have learned so much about myself and my leadership ability. I acquired my lifeguard trainer certification and have put it to good use since.
The reason I love event lifeguarding is because on top of keeping everyone safe, I love being a part of the excitement going on around me.
I am a high-school baseball player, and this summer I am lifeguarding and coaching baseball camps!
I would like to lifeguard private parties because I enjoy making good money for something that I love doing. (Lifeguarding) Plus all of my older family members were lifeguards so it runs on our blood!

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 10 years experience being in a swim league, both the summer season and year-round. I’ve met a lot of friends that way and I like most aquatic activities. I have also been certified in CPR multiple times now.

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 6 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. This is my first year lifeguarding for events, and I look forward to working with you to ensure the safety of all your swimmers!

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.

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 serve the Austin communities of Austin, Pflugerville, Round Rock, among others.
I am currently 17 years old and have been lifeguarding since the age of 15. I love working with kids and making sure that they can have a safe swimming environment without the constant watch and worry of parents. Lifeguarding at events is always a pleasure because clients are in a happy cheery mood and make sure that I am taken care of. Personally, I have been in the pool everyday since the age of 8. I am a competitive club swimmer and captain of the water polo and swim team at Paschal High School in Fort Worth. I’d love to lifeguard at your next event!

I have been guarding since 2014 with the City of Los Angeles. This is my second year working with their open water department (beaches and lakes). This is my first summer with Happy Swimmers! And I’ve loved every event I have been assigned to. My goal is to make sure every party I watch over is accident and worry free.
I have been swimming my entire life in the pool, lakes, rivers, and the ocean. I somehow always end up in the water, even if I’m just trying to relax on the beach or stay in a raft floating down a river. I have younger siblings and cousins, and am always in charge of keeping them safe around water. As a lifeguard, my goal is to make your event as enjoyable as possible for everyone in and around the pool by preventing incidents from happening. I am a very happy and bright person, and I love the sun!
Fun fact: Even though I love to swim and would much rather be in the water on a hot day in the valley, I run cross country and track competitively and kind of enjoy it!
Serving: Tarzana, Woodland Hills, Calabasas, Sherman Oaks

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.

I played JV swim team and water polo for four years in high school.

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.

I am passionate about first aid and survival skills and when I’m lifeguarding I pride myself on safety and prevention.

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 have also been professionally lifeguarding for over three years! Lifeguarding is one of my absolute favorite jobs because I get to be by the pool, which I love, and also ensure that I’m keeping my fellow swimmers safe.

I love getting to watch people enjoying the water while knowing they are safe.

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.

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.
