GOTCPR celebrated it's 10 year anniversary tonight with our fantastic instructors. For those who were unable to attend please know we missed you but definitely thought about you.

Thank you so very much to our clients and instructors for using our services and referring your family, friends, and colleagues. The greatest compliment is a referral. Without you we wouldn't have this 10 year anniversary celebration.

In light of Father's Day tomorrow I would like to mention my dad, L.T., because he was the inspiration for GOTCPR. I miss him so much and I carry his memory with me each time I teach.

Thank you, Gary Fitzsimmons, for encouraging me to start GOTCPR and for being so supportive over the years. I learned from the best and you continue to be my mentor.

Thank you to all of our seasoned and our new instructors for making us a success. Thank you to Joe Kidder for keeping the administrative side of the house in order. Thank you Daniel Vogel-Rogers for being my number one cheerleader through it all. Your support is remarkable just as you are. Thank you Debra Loff-Like, Nikki Kilbride, Geoff Smith, Lindsay Marie, Thomas Riley, Diego J Gray Chase, Wendy, Dee, Greg Button, Todd, Caryn Cozzolino, Carolina, Alex, Julia, Arena, Sergio, Chris, and Mallory.

Here's to another few decades of teaching others to save lives. ๐Ÿš‘๐Ÿš‘๐Ÿš‘


Happy Anniversary to GOTCPR!!!!

Ten years ago this month I started GOTCPR, LLC. My father's death on 12/22/2003 is the inspiration for my company. As many of you know he had terminal lung cancer and on 12/22/2003 I attempted to resuscitate him. The resuscitation attempt was unsuccessful however through this tragedy my father left a gift inside my heart and soul. The gift is to inspire, encourage, and teach others how to save a life. Through the years students have stayed in touch and shared their stories of success, attempts, and had questions.

We have been so blessed to have met and taught thousands of students over the years. We would not be where we are today without your support and especially your continued support and referrals. Our passion for teaching others how to respond in an emergency is priceless and is evident in our instruction.

My father is the driving force behind my company. I think of him each time I teach a class. A very special THANK YOU goes to Gary Fitzsimmons who encouraged me multiple times to start GOTCPR, LLC given my EMS and personal experience. Thank you.
