You Have No Excuses Now! Third Class Medical Reform


When someone tells me they can’t get a medical or don’t try to get one because they believe they won’t get it, I call them on it.

Beyond the Girlboss Moment: Turning Aluminum into Gold


  I am beyond humbled and honored to be featured in Girlboss. For those of you who don’t know who Girlboss is, it was started by Sophia Amoruso, who has a clothing company called Nasty Gal, which derived from being kicked off eBay.

I Am The Product of Blood, Sweat, and 5606.


When I was a little girl, my father brought me to the airport on a daily basis. I can’t recall a time that I wasn’t at the airport (other than ballet lessons.)  Before I was 12 or 13 I didn’t mind it much, in fact, I really enjoyed being at the airport.  But after I hit the teenage years, my interest faded because all my friends were going to the beach while I was performing annuals and 100 hours at […]
