Q & A

What drew you to aviation?: I fell in love with aviation when I was 15. After my first Young Eagles flight, I was hooked! I loved the freedom of being able to fly and travel.

How long have you been involved in aviation education?: I have been a ground instructor since 2015 & a flight instructor since 2020. I

What's your favorite part of what you do in aviation education?: I love getting to experience all of the "firsts" again with my students. To share in the experience of the first solo, the accomplishment of a private pilot license, and the novelty of flying a cross country with pilotage and dead reckoning, is meaningful to me as an instructor.

Who are your role models in aviation?: My role model is my first CFI. He taught me the most about flying and shared the skies with me. Of course, my other role model is Bob Hoover, if I could be half the pilot he was I would consider that a success!
