Flying is something I always wanted to do but thought you had to join the military to earn your wings.
A float plane ride in Alaska in 2000 inspired me to think about flying again. By coincidence, I started dating a pilot around the same time, who encouraged me to take a companion flying course and it all literally took off from there.
I’ve successfully mentored two pilots to certification and hope to mentor another student shortly.
I do not fly for a living but I live to fly.
I lease my Cessna 182 to a flight school, I am very active in my local 99′s Chapter (International Organization of Women Pilots), Women in Aviation, and I volunteer for Experimental Aircraft Association Young Eagle flights and Volunteer Pilot Mercy Flights.
I fly several hours a month — almost every weekend.
I am available to speak on the following subjects:
History of Air Racing
Modern Day Air Racing experiences
Being a Women Pilot
Mentoring Student Pilots
This is my second year participating in the Air Race Classic, which is an all-women’s transcontinental air race of approximately 2500 statute miles. This is the successor to the National Air Derby that was first held in 1929.
