In 2004, Payne’s dream came true when she opened The CPR Lady. Those who take cardiopulmonary resuscitation classes from Payne’s center know her as the CPR Lady. Payne and her son Gregory Wyatt teach CPR classes at their center, 5519 Foxridge Drive, Overland Park, KS, and on location. Wyatt serves as the company’s chief operating officer. Six other instructors also teach classes.
