My name is Elaine and I am a Child Passenger Safety Technician (CPST). I am also a parent. When my daughter was born in 2012, I was unaware of just how much there was to know about car seat safety. As I started learning, I became motivated to share my knowledge with fellow parents. I educate from a best practice standpoint where the information you will receive goes beyond minimum legal requirements. My ultimate goal is to empower fellow parents and other caregivers to keep children as safe as possible on the road by making fully informed choices about their car seat use and installation.
I am insured by ProLink Canada and received my training and certification from the Child Passenger Safety Association of Canada (CPSAC) in 2014. Since then, I have spent countless hours educating about car seat safety on social media and through email, working in the retail baby gear industry and conducting installation check appointments. Also, completing the recertification process every three years means my knowledge and skills are always up-to-date with the ever-changing rules and regulations surrounding the correct use and installation of child restraints for all ages and stages.
