● How you got involved in the Lifesaving Service
My parents exposed me to every open water opportunity that they could growing up. Beach daily, Surf Trips, Boating, Fishing, and after being around the ocean that much. Loving the water and having the intrinsic nature to want to save and help lifeguarding was the only choice.
● Interest and passion for Surf Rescue
I’ve been lifeguarding since 1995 and grew up on the beach here in Monmouth Beach. I am a resident of Oceanport, New Jersey . I love the sport of lifeguarding love when it’s done for me and the life it’s given me. It has provided the backbone of who I am. It has given me confidence, bravery, leadership and now it’s my turn to mentor young people. To teach them how to lifeguard and problem solve and how to keep the public safe.
