My Faculty Page

AREAS OF FOCUS: swimming, CPR, first aid, lifeguard training
BIOGRAPHY: I've been on the faculty at De Anza since April, 1988, first in Physical Education, then in Biological and Health Sciences as well.

I'm a Red Cross certified instructor, primarily in lifeguard training, swimming, first aid and CPR/AED. I also train Red Cross instructors in each of these fields and have mentored two Instructor Trainers.

Shortly into my term as a De Anza instructor, I became the Senior Faculty Adviser to the Outdoor Club.

I'm proud to have been a lifeguard, lifeguard captain or in charge of the swim of 53 triathlons or open water swims.

I was retained as an expert witness in a near-drowning lawsuit. The good guys won.

March 2014 I became a volunteer with Yosemite National Park Preventative Search and Rescue.

I have been a member of the De Anza College Academic Senate Executive Committee since 2012.
