Eric Pertnoy learned how to be a man you can trust from his favorite engineering professor in college. During office hours, his professor would sometimes recall his experiences in the military, and how the military taught him to be trustworthy, honest, and reliable. His professor talked about being trustworthy as a soldier for many reasons. Eric Pertnoy liked to think of himself as trustworthy as these soldiers his professor spoke of and aspired to be just that.

He may have never joined the military like his professor did, but he has been in enough different situations to know when his trustworthy character has made a difference in his life.

Emergency Medical Technician Eric Pertnoy
After he enrolled in the class, Eric Pertnoy began to learn technical terms such as cardiopulmonary resuscitation and defibrillation. Along with learning the terms, he was learning the techniques to administer these procedures. Eric Pertnoy was also learning how to stop severe external bleeding, preventing shock in a patient and stabilizing a patient from movement to avoid further damage. Eric Pertnoy excelled in all aspects of the Emergency Medical Technician program.
However, as Eric Pertnoy began to think about performing these techniques on real people, he became fearful. He started to think about what he would do if someone went into shock or worse, if they died under his care. Eric Pertnoy voiced these concerns to his instructor and was glad for the advice from a veteran in this field.
The instructor was very blunt with Eric Pertnoy and acknowledged his fears. There was a good chance that someone could die in his care and that over time that would become easier to deal with. Eric Pertnoy and his instructor talked about actual experiences and how the instructor dealt with difficult scenarios. After these conversations Eric Pertnoy would go home and think hard about whether or not this field was for him. He always concluded the same thing after each talk – he wanted to help people and would have to take the risk. Eric Pertnoy knew that in the end it would be worth it both mentally and financially.
Animal Rescue Eric Pertnoy
Eric Pertnoy has been volunteering for the local animal rescue for the past couple of years. He loves cats and dogs, but in his small apartment he cannot have any pets of his own. In order to fulfill that void, Eric Pertnoy spends a weekend here and there at the local rescue. His efforts are so appreciated by those who manage the animal rescue.
While at the animal rescue, Eric Pertnoy pitches in by walking the dogs all through the park. Sometimes if the rescue is particularly busy during the week, the dogs have not been walked nearly enough. Eric Pertnoy arrives first thing in the morning and grabs as many leashes as he can manage. The dogs are so grateful to get outside and are jumping and barking in happiness. Eric Pertnoy lets them sniff everything imaginable and even lets them off-leash in the areas where they are allowed.
Another aspect of volunteering at the animal rescue is helping at the adoption events. Eric Pertnoy especially enjoys these events as he gets to help potential pet owners chose the perfect animal for their home. What he really loves to see are the small children choosing their first kitten or puppy to bring home with them. Eric Pertnoy teaches the new owners all about the animal they have chosen and how to properly care for it.
Occasionally, Eric Pertnoy will foster a cat or dog for the weekend at his home. While it is a small space, Eric Pertnoy can make an exception if it is only for a short period of time. The danger for him is getting too attached to the animals during these weekend stays. Someday, Eric Pertnoy wants to have a house of his own with a large fenced in yard that can hold a few dogs at a time. Eric Pertnoy would like to adopt a whole family from the animal rescue!
Eric Pertnoy and His College Experience

Upon starting his freshman year of college, Eric Pertnoy was ready to be away from his family and home life.

While growing up on not the best side of town, Eric Pertnoy’s younger brother was being picked on at school by a well-known bully. Each day, the bully was taking his brother’s lunch money and threatening him that he better not tell anyone about this daily routine. Eric Pertnoy and his younger brother were having a conversation one day and this information leaked out about the bully. Enraged, Eric Pertnoy assured his little brother that he would never have to give the bully this money again.
The next day at school, Eric Pertnoy approached this bully who was both older and much larger than him. He looked him straight in the eye and asked him why he was taking his brother’s lunch money. The bully was so shocked to be confronted that he fumbled for an answer. Eric Pertnoy waited patiently while the bully made up some lame story as to why he was terrifying this young boy each day. Eric Pertnoy asked him how he would like it if someone took something away from him each day that he needed. The bully mulled this over for a moment and agreed that he would not like it at all.

Tennis Coach Eric Pertnoy
Eric Pertnoy religiously watched tennis matches for years and years while he played on his high school and college tennis teams. He loved tennis. He loved everything about the game, but specifically he loved to play his own matches. Eric Pertnoy’s teammates would consistently tell him that he should become a coach because of his encouraging mannerisms and his ability to bring out the best in people. Eric Pertnoy was somewhat shocked by these suggestions as he wanted to simply play the game, not coach others to play it.
As time marched on, Eric Pertnoy was often asked by his own tennis coach to mentor new players who joined the team. Eric Pertnoy would take the players through the drills, introduce them to other players and find out what their strengths and weaknesses were. Eric Pertnoy would then present the results to the tennis coach and discuss strategies for the player. He was always able to see where a player needed improvement and how to capitalize on the strongest points in those same players. The coach appreciated his insight and encouraged him to continue working with the other players.
Finally, Eric Pertnoy admitted to himself that he was already doing and enjoying the job of a coach. Why not get paid to give this advice and mentor players younger than him? It was not as if he was getting any younger and he was not going to be a professional. He still got to play whenever he wanted and got the satisfaction of helping the other players. Eric Pertnoy learned to appreciate the art of coaching that season. He has been coaching ever since and proudly builds a strong team each season. Last year, Eric Pertnoy and his team were awarded tickets to see the US Open. It was a very exciting day for all.
