"Saving lives 30 compressions at a time!"

Kiya Beard, a nationally registered certified EMT and American Heart Association Instructor, helps businesses, communities, schools and individuals host classes to promote public safety and secure certifications to meet Indiana State requirements. Before starting 1 Life 2 Live Health and Safety Training, LLC, Kiya Beard was born and raised in Gary, Indiana. After the passing of her grandmother Lessie Green in 2011, Kiya sparked a interest in the healthcare industry, but wasn't in a position to pursue it. In early 2012 at the age of 26, Kiya suffered a T.I.A (warning stroke) and from that moment Kiya realized it was time for a change. With her growing interest in the healthcare field, the growing crime rate and decrease in opportunities, Kiya and her supportive loving husband Jeremiah Beard decided to move to Indianapolis is 2012 with their 4yr old son to begin their new journey. Kiya took the backseat to help her husband with his career path and supported his moves, while working as a Administrative Assistant and A/P Assistant. After having their 2nd son in 2013, Kiya continued her career in customer service roles, which include Sr. Dispatcher for the city of Indianapolis, Brand Ambassador for major trucking company Peterbilt and IT Support Specialist for Indiana University. Her lengthy career in customer service groomed her into an outgoing business professional and later in life a entrepreneur. In 2017, Kiya Beard was certified as a American Heart Association by her older sister and her training career began. Working with different cultures, ethnicity and religions perfected Kiya’s communication skills and gave her the ability to be flexible to meet her client’s needs, exceed their expectations and form personal relationships as well as business partnerships with the community. To ensure she was teaching valuable accurate information and properly training individuals in life saving skills, Kiya enrolled in EMT training and obtained her certifications in August 2019. After a successful career in customer service and teaching safety training classes, Kiya is now traveling all over Indiana reaching out to residents, business owners, childcare facilities, schools, churches and non-profits teaching them how to save lives 30 compressions at a time! Kiya is available for your certification needs, public safety event, health fairs and private consultations. You can reach Kiya at 317-983-1210 or by email at [email protected]
