In 2014 Shelley Lynch MSN NP-BC APRN CCRN was returning home from a business trip and witnessed a TSA worker collapse in front of her at Logan Airport. Shelley, recognizing the need to intervene, rushed to his aid and applied immediate lifesaving measures which eventually allowed for a full recovery.
It was a as a result of this event that Shelley and her husband Chad realized the need for more opportunities to train and educate the general public on the importance of proper CPR & AED use. Their vision included having a clean, safe and welcoming training center, where anyone could receive education in anything from basic CPR up to Pediatric Advanced Life Support.
Shelley, who was already an American Heart Association BLS, ACLS, and PALS Instructor and AHA Faculty, capitalized on her experience as a college professor, combined with 15 + years experience as a bedside nurse and nurse practitioner to create a curriculum. Chad brought his 15 years of business operations insight, combined with his training in the United States Coast Guard to help create the framework for the business.
From there, Chad & Shelley developed a network of instructors who were as passionate as they were to help educate. Once the synthesis of curriculum, staffing, and business plan came to be, they found a convenient location and began offering regular classes.
The business has grown to what it is now, one of the most prominent, respected and thorough AHA training sites in the Boston area training in the top hospitals in the country, community hospitals, and in the community. We are proud to be By Providers, for Providers.
