Lifeguards Giving Lessons

About Us

My name is Daria Maya and I am the founder and president of When I was a child my parents installed a swimming pool in our backyard. My parents researched all sorts of safety features to ensure my brother and I had a safe swimming experience. They also wanted a safe water environment for our neighbors, friends, and guests. Each year my parents hosted several pool parties. Every time they hosted a party they always hired a lifeguard. At one party, a child was saved by an attentive lifeguard.

My parents always had a hard time finding a lifeguard for our parties. They would ask friends, post online, and go down to the local beach.

While in my sophomore year of high school, I completed a lifeguard skills class. I became an American Red Cross Certified Lifeguard. My goal was to help other families keep everyone safe around a pool or water body.

I decided to create WeLifeguard, where families can find certified lifeguards. I asked friends to join in my water safety effort. I hope that this website helps everyone enjoy a safe swimming experience.


About Daria

I have grown up around pools my entire life. Whether I was at a friend's house, the beach or a pool, I always loved to swim. In middle school, I continued my passion for the water by swimming at a local pool. I currently play competitive water polo. I am an American Red Cross pool and waterfront certified lifeguard. I am also a certified babysitter.

When I was younger my parents always hired lifeguards around our backyard pool during parties. I hope to give other families and kids that same feeling of security that I once felt.
