Where did you do your flight training?
University of Central Missouri
My mom was a flight attendant for TWA and my dad is a pilot for American Airlines. Jet fuel was in my blood and I knew there was nothing I would rather do.
What airplanes have you flown during your career?
E-175, Cessna 172 and 152, Piper Warrior, Arrow, Seminole, and Barron-58
Have you had/have any mentors throughout the years?
My dad is my biggest mentor. He is a captain at American Airlines and is my go-to phone call. I also have a great group of friends here at my airline who all support each other, helped each other through training, and have built lifelong friendships that we will have our whole careers.
Do you have any future aviation goals you hope to achieve?
Short term: I would love to make it to American Airlines before my dad retires so I can sit right seat to him on his retirement flight. Long term: Heavy International Captain exploring the world!
What have been some recent challenges you’ve faced?
Getting to fly to Key West with my family in our Piper Arrow and spend the weekend with them there for my dad’s birthday. Flying over the water and being able to share my love of flying with my family is a memory of a lifetime!
