My name is Jenee Bild and I have been married since 2004 to my wonderful, supportive husband Scott. We were blessed with our first son Gavin in 2007, our second son Owen in 2009 and I finally got my girl, Charlotte (Charlee), in November of 2011. I have lived in Arizona my whole life where I previously managed Multi-Housing properties for 11 years. The number of drowning incidents in the valley, as well as hearing first hand accounts from my Husband who is a Paramedic-Firefighter for the Glendale Fire Department left us unsatisfied with child safety doors, gates and locks for our pool area. We learned about ISR’s approach and immediately wanted to equip our children with this extra layer of protection. Gavin first entered ISR lessons at age 1 & picked it up quickly. He is confident, skilled & loves to play in the water. My Husband insisted Owen become skilled as soon as he was 6 months old. ISR's Self-Rescue program allowed Owen to float before he was even able to crawl. That is when I knew I had to be a part of this organization. Charlee also learned her float at only 6 months! With 10 years of experience teaching, I am not about to slow down. I look forward to getting in the water everyday knowing I am teaching children the survival skills that may save their life!
My hope is that Not One More Child Drowns and drowning calls to the Glendale Fire Department are no longer necessary!
