Aviation has always been part of my life as long as I could remember. The thrum of the engines, the smell of jet fuel, and early mornings to go pick my dad up from the airport. Growing up I was fortunate to travel the world including visiting family in Japan, so the feeling of boarding an aircraft and flying felt natural. I was immersed into the lifestyle without realizing it. The thought of becoming a pilot had often crossed my mind in high school, but at the time seemed very distant and out of reach.
It wasn’t until after I graduated from Western Washington University, with a four year degree in Communications Studies and a Minor in Japanese, about to begin my career in hospitality, did I think about life without aviation. I couldn’t imagine it!
Needless to say I made a career shift and didn’t look back! I took my first discovery flight at Rainier Flight Service and followed that up with finishing my private. Thereafter I moved to Moses Lake WA, to complete the rest of my training at Big Bend Community College. Choosing aviation has not only provided me with some of the most rewarding milestones I had ever experienced, but has allowed me to meet some amazing individuals within the aviation community.
Now being an instructor at Rainier Flight Service, I am so excited to share my experiences and passion for aviation and help others develop the skills and confidence to fly just as others have done for me. I’m always up for meeting new people and having a conversation!
