New Mexico Instructors

Elizabeth Holguin

Liz has been running her own CPR training business in Silver City, New Mexico since 2015 and is very excited to now offer CPR classes for our furry friends! She has two crazy dogs (Butters and Zippy) and one bossy cat (Mr. Kitty). Liz is a certified Basic Life Support instructor who teaches American Heart Association Heartsaver CPR, First Aid and BLS classes. She is also a certified EMT with a background in emergency medicine but after a few years found her passion in teaching instead. Her experience and education shines through in her dynamic teaching style. Combine all that with her love for animals, students taking her class will definitely get more than they bargained for.
