C130s from the Jacksonville Air Force base sparked her initial interest in aviation, which was later heightened when her parents took her to a few airshows. She learned about Henderson's aviation program and flew a Discovery Flight in 2014. She plans to have all training complete and graduate by spring 2020. Upon graduation, she will work as a flight instructor at Henderson accumulating the necessary hours to work for a regional airline, with the ultimate goal of becoming a corporate pilot.
