Having grown up around aviation, I’m incredibly fortunate to be able to instruct and pass along my knowledge and experience to the next group of aviators.

I grew up in the Bay Area and attended the University of California, Santa Barbara. After moving back to the bay after college, I worked in Silicon Valley for various technology companies with various roles for a few years. Eventually, I found myself working for a great company that provides charter fleet management software to Part 135 Charter operators, which enabled me to involve myself in the business aviation world. I soon realized that aviation was my passion, and office life just wasn’t going to cut it. I then made the decision to devote myself to flying for a living. Although scary, it was hands down the best decision I’ve ever made.

I began flying in early 2015 and completed my Private Pilot at KSQL. Shortly thereafter, I received my Instrument rating in Scottsdale, Arizona and came back to the Bay Area to complete my Commercial and CFI training. I’ve had the privilege of flying a variety of aircraft, in a variety of locations, with excellent instructors who have provided invaluable knowledge that I hope to share with my students. I’m also involved in various community groups to enrich the lives of fellow aviators, including Women in Aviation, NGPA, F.A.S.T., AOPA, EAA, and volunteer as a pilot for Pilots n Paws rescue flights.

The Bay Area is an incredible place to learn to fly and I am happy to share my local knowledge with you. Whether you’re looking for a fun new adventure or want to see if flying is something to make a career out of, I can’t wait to work with you towards that goal! Don’t hesitate to reach out with questions or just to chat about aviation.
