Carrie Tse began volunteering for BLAST in our 2nd year (2012). She was recruited by Margaret Hansen to be our 2nd Lifeguard. Her qualifications include Bronze Medallion, Bronze Cross, Water Safety Instructor, Lifesaving Instructor, First Aid & CPR-C,
To our good fortune we discovered she excels in arts and crafts. One of the yearly projects is the creation of our memory book which is forming the history of BLAST. Capturing all the people Building Life After Stroke Together throughout the years.
In 2014 Carrie brought a new program we fondly dubbed "Sync or Swim". While attending McGill University her synchronized swim team were silver and gold medalists. Carrie spearheaded the Dandelion adaptive synchronized swimming program in 2012 at the Vancouver Pacific Wave pool. Carrie works mainly with children and adapted her adapted program for our BLAST campers. .
