Hi, my name is Jacqueline and I am the mom of two wonderful children; Lachlan and Ainsley. I first became passionate about car seat safety when I found a link explaining the importance of rear facing, this started me researching and trying to get my hands on as much information as I could find. In the spring of 2011 I was trained with ITSA and volunteered with Buckle Up Baby a local car seat group. In 2013 I decided to upgrade my training with The Canadian Child Passenger Association of Canada, so I would be able to work with parents individually as well as organizing our own clinics allowing more children to ride in appropriate, properly installed car seats.
Marianne is a mom of 3 girls; Natalie, Jillian and Rachel. I moonlight in child passenger safety by night while working in IT by day. I originally was certified by the Infant and Toddler Safety Association (http://infantandtoddlersafety.ca/) in 2010 and then became certified with the Canadian Child Passenger Association of Canada (http://www.cpsac.org/) in 2013. I enjoy aiding parents and guardians in picking the right seat for their individual situation (budget, vehicle, child, etc) along with ensuring that restraint is used properly, every time. I want you to feel comfortable both installing and using your seat properly after our appointment.
Hello, my name is Margaret and I have been an early childhood educator for over 25 years ~ helping to ensure that children have the best early learning experience has been an ongoing passion for me which naturally transferred over to car seat safety. Especially when I often observed families struggling over which ‘seat’ was best for their child during arrival and departure from the various daycares I worked at over the years. In 2007 I opened up my own early learning program in my home and after a couple years decided that as part of my service I wanted to be able to transport children on field trips and outings on demand so wanted to ensure that I REALLY knew what I was doing when choosing seats and installing to get the best fit and versatility of my changing needs for my vehicle, so in 2010 I became a certified car seat technician through Infant and Toddler Safety Association and began volunteering with Buckle Up Baby. In the Fall of 2013 I recertified t his time with the Canadian Child Passenger Association of Canada and while I do not have as much time as I would like to devote to my passion I do love to volunteer my time to help out with single installs for clients and the community as well as helping out at the various clinics organized by the London Carseat Safety group!
Lisa is a full time student who is also a mom of two girls. She has a three legged cat, more tattoos then she can count (we are guessing 12) and enjoys boy bands. She has been a tech since April 2014. Her little ladies are 3 and 5. She lives in the east end of London.
Melissa is a woman of many talents. She’s a long standing member of London Car Seat Safety, a photographer and a mom of three (including 2 boys who can rock pink solana’s and a wee little girl). She works at Vesta, keeps a house that’s the envy of Martha Stuart and bakes amazing desserts. She’s also the only one brave enough to take three kids to Florida alone. Kudos to you Melissa.
Catherine is a mom to two, and a caregiver to many more. She has a great deal of experience with challenging car seats, and holds the local record for installs! She’s currently searching for car seat #7 for her preschooler, as he keeps outgrowing them.
