What do you like most about working at flyExclusive?

Flying private all over the world of course! In all seriousness, I know it’s so cliche to say, but it is truly the people. Growing up in the small town where flyExclusive was born, I have had the pleasure of knowing our CEO and some of my co-workers and their families for over 20 years! I grew up with them, my kids grew up with their kids and yes, I even babysat some of my co-workers that work side by side with me today! It takes a village they say, and I certainly love my flyExclusive village! A special thank you to Josh Golden for seeing something in me I didn’t even know existed as well as to all my co-workers who took the time to train and mold me into a better version of myself. Hopefully, I will be as influential in someone else’s journey here as my co-workers have been in mine!

Tell me something interesting about yourself.

I’m going to need to phone a friend! On a serious note, sort of, my family has always said I have the unnatural ability to land the best jobs ever even without being qualified! I think they are correct!

What is your favorite movie?

Too many to mention! But currently Yellowstone on Netflix!

Do you have any interesting hobbies?

My family is my hobby!

How long have you worked for flyExclusive?

I have been with flyExclusive since March 2019.

What is your favorite flight?

My first flight with FE was ISO-TTN flown by none other than our very own President of FE, Mr. Mike Guina. I have flown with him many times since and can honestly say it never feels like we ever left the ground!

What is your favorite memory working here?

Walking into my supervisor’s office with some bright idea to create a new position and his response was “You know you have zero qualifications for that type of position, right?” Yet, after hearing my ‘pitch’ not only supported me 1000% but also gave me every piece of ammunition within flyExclusive’s arsenal to bring that position, that I currently hold, to life!
