Jenna Porcelli, Director, Certified ISR Instructor

Hi there! My name is Jenna Porcelli and I am a former New Yorker now living in Yardley PA. I have a varied professional background and have worn many hats, but since 2005 I have been building a successful career in advertising with digital companies such as Buzzfeed and Scary Mommy.


I found ISR when my oldest was an infant, and brought him 40 min away from my home to a fabulous ISR instructor for lessons. It was beyond worth it despite being hectic to manage with a full time job, and when my second child came along I trekked her to lessons too! 


Parenting is hard, and we are all always wondering if we are doing the right thing. But when I saw my babies roll to their back for the first time I didn't have to wonder...I knew I had done whatever it took to make them as safe as possible around water. ISR solidified its place as one of my proudest accomplishments as their mama, and I became obsessed with helping other moms feel that way too!


I have spent 180 hours training to become part of the solution for childhood drowning and look forward to offering this amazing program to families in my area. I will be teaching in Newtown PA.. looking forward to meeting you & your children by the pool!


Shara Kohart, Certified ISR Instructor

My name is Shara Kohart. I live in New Hope PA with my husband, 4 year old son and 2 year old twins.

I was always a very strong swimmer and spent middle school and high school on the swim team. I also spent most of my summers lifeguarding well into college. I went to the University of Vermont for my undergraduate degree and NYU for my masters in Social Work. I worked as a Medical Social Worker for close to 10 years before I had my children and became a stay at home mom.

Pretty quickly after signing my little ones up for ISR I fell in love with the program and how amazing it is! It is an unexplainable sense of relief to have my children safe and skilled in the water in such a short period of time. I knew that I wanted to be a part of the solution to Not One More Child Drowns. I can't wait to get in the water and skill your kiddos!
