Caryn brings her significant and relevant career experience to her instruction/training sessions. Her demeanor is calm and supportive which adds to her ability to teach you what you need to know and improve or refresh your skills. She definitely knows her stuff and is willing to share her expertise and practical experience to facilitate your learning. For me, the location was very convenient and the session went quickly.Jul 28, 2016Verified

Caryn was AWESOME! She worked around my schedule and made the effort to come to my place (which is not close to her) to get me re-certified. I will definitely be recommending her and I will keep her contact info handy for when I need her again.Dec 10, 2015Verified
Caryn was a terrific teacher. I wish we had practiced a few more scenarios of what to do in an emergency. Overall, she was great at explaining and demonstrating the various techniques!Nov 25, 2015Verified

- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Initially I like to know what it is they need the training for. This allows me to prepared a more tailored class for the individual so that it is appropriate for their needs. I try to be very reasonable on price because this is an essential skill that not only is a requirement for jobs but can be a skill that saves the life of someone they love. After we figure out their needs either I travel to or the client is welcome to come to my home and we have the class.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have been involved in some aspect of lifesaving since I was very young starting with being involved in American Red Cross Lifeguarding and swim lessons. I became a junior volunteer on the ambulance when I was 15. When I turned 18 I took my first Emergency Medical Technician course and rode as a volunteer. After I graduated from college I applied to Fire Department of New York where I worked for 3 years. I was a initial responder to the World Trade Center attack. I relocated to VA in 2003 where I worked as an Emergency Medical Technician at the Virginia Hospital Center Emergency Room. I then was hired by Arlington County Fire Department and am currently in my 10th year as a Firefighter/Paramedic.
