Lezanne Dekoning, ASM Lead Instructor

Lezanne_pic_trikeLezanne Dekoning, ASM Lead Instructor Lezanne is a serious Adrenalin Junky and loves anything that challenges her and her ability, she is a trained Scuba Diving Instructor and in her spare time she is a pilot and flies aerobatics and thus knows the thrill adrenalin can give. In 2013 she started riding Harleys from never been on a bike before but she needed to feel the exhilaration only bikers can explain. Due to her background as an Ambulance Emergency Assistant Paramedic, she is fully aware of the risks biking can have and have treated many bikers on scenes of accidents. She is very passionate about training and assisting people and has been training First Aid since 1995. She started her own First Aid and Emergency Training Company in 2002 and trains lots of different First Aid courses and have a huge range of students from Laypeople to Doctors, Nurses and Paramedics. Lezanne trains First Aid classes Level 1,2 and 3, she is also a Resuscitation Council of South Africa Instructor and American Heart Association Instructor training CPR courses.

She is part of the Johannesburg HOG Chapter and has two Harleys that she rides regularly, one Harley Trike and then her Prize winning Dragon bike Scorcher (a fully customized Harley Street Bob). She recently started riding her husband’s Heritage Soft-tail and has now taken it over from him as her own bike- leaving her husband with only 1 Street Glide… “The heritage is an awesome bike to ride, it’s fun and comfortable and I love the rumbling vibration. We ride nearly every weekend and sometimes even take the bike through some serious traffic to work in a very busy Johannesburg.”

Being in South Africa and having all the beautiful roads to travel on- some areas are very remote and sadly getting an ambulance to a scene of an accident even in big cities may be a huge challenge. “Through the years of working on the road as Ambulance Emergency Assistant, I have seen many people die or seriously injured due to lack of available emergency assistance and patient care, not having enough First Aiders and not having the right equipment and training- it is my dream to train as many people in the Bystander Assistance Program as possible to Save Lives and allow patients to ‘live to ride another day’.”

Lezanne is currently working for an International Medical Company full time as a Marketing Manager and is involved in training of distributors and healthcare professionals.
