Joaquin, Event Lifeguard and Aspiring chef

I’m originally from St. Paul, MN where I got my first lifeguard job the biggest municipal water park in the Midwest (Cascade Bay). Averaging over 3,000 people daily this sparked my interest for continuing lifeguarding after the summer season ended. In the past I have taught swim lessons at country clubs and school districts, along with guarding at other smaller pools. My intention is to bring the a positive atmosphere and create a safe, but fun swimming environment for everyone. A fun fact about me is that I enjoy cooking and going for bike rides!

Katherine, Event Lifeguard, Sports Lover, and Pinterest Enthusiast


I am a new lifeguard hoping to make a difference with my acquired skills! I want to encourage aquatic safety, especially pertaining to the youth who need guidance and still have so much to learn. I’m here to connect with, help, and do my best to support different patrons and my fellow lifeguarding staff. I’m very excited to use my skills in an interpersonal way, such as events, in which I can get to know different groups or returning customers. That’s one of the things that definitely drew me to lifeguarding for private events compared to at large public pools or water parks: the ability to interact with parents and children on a more personal level! I can’t wait for all the things I will learn and the difference I will make!
