When they are not training they enjoy movies, playing cards, visiting Clearwater Beach and most of all spending time with their amazing family and friends.
Hello everyone, I’m Keiko, I’m been teaching CPR with HeartVital for over a year now. I’m very excited to get to meet new people while teaching the community life saving skills.
If I’m not teaching CPR, I’m working as an LPN at a local clinic in my hometown. I’m also happily married with one rambunctious toddler named Jackson. My hobbies are hunting and fishing along with being outside enjoying the sunshine.
We are always looking for outgoing, passionate, hardworking people to join our team. Call or send a resume today.
My name is Elle and I've been teaching for three years at HeartVital. My background is based in medicine and I truly believe knowledge and prevention are key to a healthy life. I spent 6 years working in surgery and loved every day of it.
Now, we've relocated to central MN and are loving the lakes. I have five wonderful kids who challenge me in great ways, and a husband who helps keep me grounded and sane. We have a dog and a cat and an overall beautifully crazy life.

Hi my name is Chase! I was first certified in CPR at the age of 16 and have been retraining ever since. In the summer I love spending time with family and friends at the cabin, on the water, and exploring in the woods. For quite a few years I lived in the Rocky Mountains with my dog Archer and spent a lot of time adventuring, hiking, camping, and hunting. In the backcountry, after an injury, is where I made the realization that keeping our skills sharp is incredibly important. While in a perfect world we would never need to use BLS, CPR & First Aid, that day I was grateful that I had the training. What I love about Heart Vital is that we try to make the class fun and keep it memorable as the skills you learn in our classroom could one day save a life. I look forward to seeing you in the class!
