My name is Tiffany Rains and I have been a certified ISR Instructor since October 2009. I have been married to my husband Bill for over 10 years and have lived in Edmond my entire life. I am excited to be a part of ISR and sharing it with my community. As a mother of three, two boys and a daughter, I know there is no greater joy than that of being a parent. I am always brought to tears when I hear of a child that has drowned. I cannot imagine a greater pain than the loss a child.
A few years ago, a couple of days before Christmas, I watched in horror with my family as an EMSA crew tried desperately to revive our neighbor‘s two year old grandson. He was there visiting and had fallen in their four foot wading pool. My daughter, at the time, was close to the same age as the little boy. That night I could not imagine what that family must be going through; I have never felt more helpless.
A few years later, a friend told me about ISR and recommended I look into becoming an Instructor. At the time, Brandi Ylla was the only instructor for the whole state of Oklahoma, a state that has more miles of shoreline than Florida, California or Texas. I knew this was something I must do. I feel honored to be a part of the awesome organization of ISR, which has provided me with a career that has such an incredible purpose like that of saving the life of a child.
During the summer (June-the end of August) I offer lessons at an outdoor private residence at 2nd and Coltrane in Edmond, between the hours of 8-11:30 a.m.
Ready to Begin Lessons or have questions? Email me at email@example.com with your desired location and lesson time and I will email you information about registering your child. I look forward to working with you and your little ones!
