2022 JG TEAM
Junior Lifeguard Program Coordinator
Hello JG Families and Friends! My name is Devon Beebe and I am the 2022 Long Beach Junior Lifeguard Coordinator. I’ve been with this department since 2014, and was promoted from Seasonal Lifeguard to Marine Safety Officer in July 2021. While I never participated in the Junior Lifeguard program growing up, I was an Instructor for 4 summers, and served as the Assistant Coordinator for the past two years. I was born and raised here in Long Beach, where I swam and played water polo at Wilson High School. I then went on to graduate with a Bachelor of Arts in Geography from UC Berkeley. Being a part of the ocean lifeguarding community has largely shaped who I am today. Not only am I passionate about youth development and water safety, but also physical fitness, being environmentally conscious, and giving back to the community that I serve. In October 2020, I was able to combine these passions through a tandem Catalina Channel swim that raised money for two local non-profits fighting ocean plastic pollution. I'm looking forward to continuing to share my passions and be a part of this amazing program!
Junior Lifeguard Assistant Coordinator
Hello everyone, my name is Sabrina Zavala. This is my 4th summer as a Long Beach Lifeguard and my first summer being a part of the Junior Lifeguard Program. Growing up in South Pasadena, I never had the opportunity to be a junior lifeguard and am so excited to finally see what it's all about! I was a competitive swimmer for 14 years, swimming through my 4 years of college at Cal State Bakersfield where I was a 2x team captain. In 2019, I earned my Bachelor's of Science in Allied Health and was inducted into the student-athlete hall of fame for CSUB. Since graduating, I have moved to Long Beach and spend my time lifeguarding, surfing, running, and taking care of my plants. I cannot wait to meet all of you soon!
Check back soon to meet the rest of the 2022 JG Team!
