West Seattle businesses work together to provide CPR class opportunities

CPR/AED/First Aid Class

CPR and First Aid are skills that save lives. Lil’Bug Studio and An Ounce of Prevention are proud to announce a partnership to help provide a community CPR/AED/First Aid training opportunity. Lil’Bug Studio is opening their doors and hosting a CPR/AED/First Aid class, taught by Marlo Holloway on We are also offering an option to take only the CPR/AED portion of the class.

The first 10 people to sign up for the class will receive a free coupon for one open play session at Lil’Bug Studio (valued at $10) and a CPR keychain mask from An Ounce of Prevention!

This class represents an opportunity for you to learn how to help a friend, family member, or stranger survive a life-threatening situation. If the unthinkable happened, would you be ready to help? Whether you need CPR certification for your job or simply want the skills to be a prepared parent or community member, this class will provide the education that you need.

Name: Kristi Keithly

Location: 10007 13th Ave SW

                 Seattle, WA 98146

Mission: Create a play space that promotes learning through play and allows children and parents to connect with others in the community.

About Kristi:  For over 20 years I have been an early childhood educator. Realizing there was a need in the community for a quality indoor play space, I created Lil’Bug Studio in White Center. It’s more than just a play space, we meet the needs of sensory exploration, creativity, large motor skills, fine motor skills, social play, and so much more. In addition, I have been a lifeguard since I was 19 and have worked with children since I was 16. Being current in CPR and First Aid has always been not only a job requirement, but an important part of living in a community.

A note from Kristi: I have lived and worked in the West Seattle community my whole life. I enjoy spending time with my family, being outdoors and traveling.

About Marlo: I began my career as a paramedic and responded to medical emergencies every day.
