About Us




Hello, my name is Lori Roper.  I have resided in Southern Maryland my entire life.  An unfortunate family tragedy led me down the path to becoming a Community Educator; a cause I am very passionate about.  I have been a certified Basic Life Support Instructor for more than 12 years.  My diverse background includes more than 25 years collective experience in Petcare, Childcare, Healthcare & Emergency Medical Services.  I have trained thousands of persons of varying professions, including: Other Basic Life Support Instructors, Physicians, Nurses, Emergency Medical Technicians, Firefighters, Childcare Providers, Parents (world's hardest job), Teachers, Coaches, Lifeguards, Scout Leaders, Scouts & Students (just to name a few) in CPR & First Aid. My mission is simple.  I pledge to provide easily accessible, affordable, appropriate periods of Lifesaving Instruction.
