NAME: COURTNEY PORFILIO
LOCATION(S): NORTH MYRTLE BEACH, SOUTH CAROLINA
YEARS LIFEGUARDING: 8
My name is Courtney Porfilio and I am currently 25 years old. I am from Myrtle Beach, SC and I am currently in the Physician Assistants’ Program at Methodist University, located in Fayetteville, NC.
I have had the privilege of working for North Myrtle Beach Ocean Rescue since 2013, making this my 8th season.
I got involved with the lifesaving service after a friend told me that he worked as an Ocean Lifeguard and naturally as a competitive swimmer, lifeguard, ocean lover and adrenaline junkie. I immediately asked how to sign up, and well the rest is history.
