Before she became an ISR mom and then a certified instructor, Liz was an elementary school teacher with a strong background as well as passion for business and philanthropy. After her family’s ISR self-rescue experience, Liz saw a window of opportunity to continue working with kids, while owning my own business and giving back to the community. Having personally experienced what it is like to go-it-alone as both an ISR swim mom and as an ISR instructor, it quickly became clear that a team approach was needed if she were to effectively increase self-rescue access in a city as large as Chicago. This inspired her to create CAST. The mission at CAST is to increase access to self-rescue lessons and to empower families and communities to create strong water safety strategies. What Liz learned in her initial ISR experience was that each day in this country, 3 families lose a child to drowning. She also learned that physical activity does absolute wonders for my girls, and that working as a team towards a big commitment taught her whole family the value of working together and believing in each other.
