Professional Summary

My experience as both a lifeguard and swim teacher gave me opportunities to learn how to stay calm under pressure and deal with stress. As a lifeguard i grew comfortable with customer interaction and stressful situations. The ultimate showcase of my lifeguard training came to fruition when i had to aid in the rescue of someone with a suspected spinal injury. My colleague and i successfully rescued the patron. After the rescue, my colleague stayed with the patron while i cleared the pool of patrons and nearby obstacles to prevent any interference with EMS.

My experience as a swim teacher helped me grow in my proficiency to problem solve. There were many occasions in which i was dealing with a particularly distracted or stubborn student, which led to me finding ways to compromise or entertain my students to the point where they were more willing to participate.

Finally, my experience as a painter gave me opportunities to learn how to hone my craft from other professionals in the field. Not only that, but it provided many opportunities to work with other professionals on my jobsite. This allowed me to grow my skills in communication and planning. It also was a consistent opportunity to engage in teamwork with my colleagues.
