Instructor Bio

Growing up underneath the flight path of BWI outside of Baltimore, Maryland, I found myself captivated by the airplanes that would soar overhead. Flying, it seemed to me, entailed a plethora of possibilities as it connected all parts of the world - building bridges through the sky. After earning my bachelor’s degree in Diplomacy and World Affairs from college in California, I returned to Maryland to pursue aviation as a profession.


As a first-generation pilot, I know the challenges that come along with diving into uncharted territory. My job as your instructor is to help you plot the course. I aim to create a supportive learning environment that’s free from judgement, where we can collaborate and work together as a team to accomplish your goals. 


Outside of aviation, I enjoy reading about foreign affairs, skiing, and playing soccer, chess, and piano.


I’m thrilled to be a part of the community here at RFS and so excited to share with you the joys of flying!
