Katie Harrington, ATC

Our CPR & First Aid Instructor is here to help you meet the requirements for your Instructor Certification or Merchant Mariner Credential. Katie is a certified Athletic Trainer with a MS from A.T. Still University. Currently, she works as an Athletic Trainer at Cal Maritime and is a sailor at heart! With her help, N/S offers courses for adult and/or pediatric CPR & First Aid through the American Red Cross. Through our hybrid course you can study at your own pace from the comfort of your own home. Then, we will hold a 3 hour practical assessment to teach hands-on techniques, go through hypothetical emergency scenarios and assess your skills. 

Shoreside Operations Specialists


The shoreside operations team is run by Bartlett CPA. This kick-ass firm is owned by a fellow-sailor, whom I happen to call Mom. The book-keeping and payroll portion of Bartlett CPA is managed by another sailor-mom of 3, who is also my sister, Elizabeth Bartlett. I will whole-heartedly admit my biases but with over 35 years of experience helping businesses make money, and being sailor-owned & operated, Bartlett CPA has the perfect skill set to help our maritime business clients.
