I’m just a regular girl living a regular life, doing what works for me.
I piloted the B777, B767, B757, B747, B737, B727, A319 and A320 as an international airline pilot/captain for United Airlines.
I flew for Eastern and Pan Am regionals before that. On my way to becoming an airline pilot, I worked as a flight instructor, charter pilot, freight pilot and aerial sightseeing tour pilot. I’ve flown planes as tiny as a car and widebody aircraft larger than a football field.
Today only 5% of pilots are female, a number essentially unchanged since Amelia Earhart’s era. Of those, less than 1% are Captains. I want to change this. My dream now is to help other young women rock STEM fields!
