Karissa Hollenbeck

CPR and First Aid Instructor

Karissa Hollenbeck has been with First Response since June 2023. She teaches CPR and First Aid Courses primarily in the Athens area.

“I love teaching others how to save others in crisis and preparing them to know what to do in an emergency. They too can become heros and in turn relieve some anxiety of not knowing what to do.” – Karissa

Outside of First Response, she can be found heavily involved in church activities and spending time with friends. Being with people is one of her favorite past times.
