My love of aviation originated from flights to and from visit my family during summers. No matter how many times I have been on a plane, flying has never lost its novelty. My curiosity and desire for learning more about aviation took me to local aviation museums, air shows, and mentorship programs which all allowed me to get more involved.

My four years at college kept me busy as I became the founder and president of the Kent State Business Aviation Association, which is a student chapter of the National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) where I worked closely with the Ohio Regional chapter to bring interest to my peers of the business aviation industry. Because of my determination and achievements, I was awarded multiple scholarships and the opportunity to do my internship at the Monterey Fuel Company: Del Monte Aviation FBO in Monterey, California.

Today, I am eagerly searching for a job within the aviation industry.
