Michelle is qualified First Aid, Pool Lifeguard, Health & Safety and Food Hygiene trainer with over 9 years experience and a strong background in leisure management.
Michelle believes that everyone should know how to administer basic first aid so that if an incident happens in your home, whilst at work or out and about you could react and potentially save a life. So many people do not receive the help they need which could mean the difference between life and death because of fear of doing the wrong thing and not having the skills to react, this is where I hope I come in!
