I didn’t grow up believing I was going to be a pilot, but it’s the career I can’t imagine ever leaving. I went to college to become a teacher. Throughout college I began to travel a lot, and looked forward to every chance I was on an aircraft. When I began teaching, I struggled with the inability to travel as much as I had previously.
After two years of teaching, I left the field to pursue a career as a flight attendant. It wasn’t too long before I realized I loved being in the sky more than the destinations.
I learned to spread my wings and fly at a time many were clipped. I committed to a pilot program in Dallas, TX. That year was a roller coaster, but I pursued and I came back to my roots as a teacher. Now I hope to instill the same love I have for the “birds-eye” view in the cockpit.
I believe a good pilot relies on the aviation community around them to learn from, grow from, and be motivated by. I have experienced first-hand what a benefit it is to be a part of a group of pilots encouraging each other, and I plan to bring this same connection and encouragement to all my students.
I moved back to the PNW, after 3 years of living in NY and then TX. I spend most of my sparetime traveling - be it in a big or small airplane. I also like to hike, run, and rock climb.
