​​​​​​​Second Chance Cardiac Solutions Founders  










I have been interested in health and wellness ever since I can remember.  As an avid fitness enthusiast and part-time group exercise instructor/trainer, I have always been aware of heart health as it relates to a healthy lifestyle.  What many do not realize is that Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) is an electrical issue with the heart that can happen to anyone, regardless of their lifestyle or habits.  When I learned this information, I knew it was time to be vigilant to educate myself and do what I could to prepare for this emergency.  My passion has now become to educate others and create heart-safe communities through my life’s work.  I know that with every training class, I am improving the likelihood that SCA victims will be granted a SECOND CHANCE AT LIFE. I am thrilled that students in our classes have successfully used their skills and that AEDs that we provided have SAVED LIVES!  I trust that our efforts will continue to lead to many more lives being saved in the future.  Greater Awareness = More Lives Saved.











​​I am passionate about educating the public of the risks of Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) and how we as a community can minimize those risks.  ​I have been a sales professional for 25 years, with more than fifteen years of experience in the medical device industry, but becoming a Certified AED (Automatic External Defibrillator) Specialist was one of the most important decisions of my life. My extensive AED product knowledge is utilized daily to develop AED programs that eliminate needless delays in life-saving defibrillation.  Having a quality AED program means that AEDs are easily accessible, rescue-ready, and potential users are properly trained.  Our company represents a variety of AED manufacturers to ensure the best offering of innovative products and services for individual client needs.
