Women of Aviation Week is about celebrating women’s accomplishments in aviation and inspiring others to construct the industry’s future. As we highlight the women that are our aerospace leaders, FreeFlight Systems is proud to encourage more women to join the industry.

Women deliver energy to the industry that facilitates equality and innovation, and FreeFlight is honored to provide an environment that encourages women to become industry leaders. Because of this, we would like to highlight the talented faces behind our team.

What brought you to work in aviation?

I wanted to learn a new industry after 15 years in hospitality.

What positive trait(s) do you feel women bring to the industry?

I believe women bring determination, new perspectives, confidence, and new industry trailblazers.

What would tell young females interested in joining the industry?

Don’t let fear scare you and remove the barrier of thinking it’s a man’s world. It’s everyone’s world, and be the innovator to change the stigma.

Do you have a female mentor or idol in the aviation industry?

Amelia Earhart: she has always held me close to aviation, with determination to prove women could be in aviation.

Do you have any inspiring lessons that you have learned about life while working in the aviation industry?

You’ve got to take the risk and not be turned away from the ever-changing environment. You can be like Blockbuster and see the needed change, but not do anything about it. However, you can be an Amazon and grow with the changing times. I am choosing Amazon, that’s the bus I am catching.

What’s your favorite thing about the industry?

PLANES! The People!
