Olivia Vasquez | Accounts Payable Coordinator

Born and raised Californian, I made the decision to leave Sacramento and come to Seattle in March of 2019 with my dog Sully! I rescued Sully in California in 2016 when he was just a few months old, and we’ve been inseparable ever since. Sully comes into the office with me and curls up under my desk and greets everyone as they come in! He isn’t too happy about all the rain, but he’s much happier with the temperature and all the muddy hikes!

Growing up, it seemed like I was always on a plane to some amazing destination, and there, my passion for traveling really started growing. Originally, I thought I’d turn my passion for traveling and food into a job as a chef, so I went to culinary school and found that even though they’re both something I’m passionate about, I’d rather enjoy them in a different way. So the hunt continued, and I found myself here at Rainier Flight Service.

Aviation had never really been on my radar, it seemed everything but interesting at first. Soon enough, I was back-seating on lessons and going in the simulator and that’s when it seemed like it was a clear path. Now, I’ll be starting flight training here shortly and see what else is in store for me in the aviation world!
