Nothing motivates a mother into action more than when her child is in danger, and her maternal superpowers are being held back by sheer panic. With a medical background, recent CPR training certification and a firm belief of taking care of others, Felicia couldn’t imagine that she would not be able to take care of her son in an emergency situation quickly. Unfortunately, two-year-old Markel laid helpless as he was rendered unconscious on the side of the road while his mother grew hysterical and in tears. Unable to breathe and communicate his life-threatening situation, Felicia’s husband took the leadership role and performed CPR which saved Markel’s life and dislodged the piece of candy that he was unable to swallow.

After the traumatizing experience of not being mentally prepared to perform CPR on her son, Felicia turned her life’s work of taking care of others into action by creating CPRWrap. This vivacious mother of three has proactively created a solution to address the 350,000 cardiac arrests taking place each year by inventing a revolutionary aid that simplifies CPR down to just four steps and is easy for everyone to use. This tool walks you through everything from proper hand placement to depth of chest compressions while creating a protective barrier between the CPR provider and recipient.
