Christian Clavelle
Teaching first-aid and everything safety related has resulted in many life changing experiences for me. Over the years, I’ve become a passionate believer in the power of learning and am reminded and motivated daily to continue helping others to learn how to help in the event of an emergency; at work, home or play.
With 2 beautiful children (that keep me very busy) and an amazingly supportive wife, I count myself blessed when it comes to the work that I’ve chosen to do and hope to continue making a difference in the first-aid world.
