Meet Our Team

Katrina Purdy, owner / Instructor

Katrina started Oregon CPR in August of 2011. Katrina and her family have been in the health care field for over 35 years. Katrina started doing her own research on risks of heart disease, heart attack and stroke after her stepbrother had a heart attack at the age of 33. Knowing that this can happen to anyone is a very important learned life lesson. Katrina’s mission is to one day have everyone in Oregon to understand how important it is to be CPR/AED trained. Katrina is currently an AHA, ARC, HSI and Basic Life Support certified instructor and plans to become an ACLS and PALS instructor very soon.

Corrine Koke, Office Manager / Instructor

Corrine has been an Instructor with Oregon CPR since 2018 & is certified with the AHA, ARC, & HSI. Originally planning to temporarily help a friend out, Katrina, Corrine quickly realized helping people learn life saving techniques was a hidden passion.

The family spent a lot of time at Doernbecher Children’s Hospital with some rehabilitation at Legacy Children’s Hospital in Portland, Oregon. She has found an enhanced respect for medical professionals and is grateful for all the amazing doctors, nurses, surgeons, therapists her family has worked with over the years.

Spending time with family & friends is Corrine’s “happy place” and she is currently impatiently awaiting the arrival of their newest grandchild.
