1966 Beechcraft Bonanza V35TC: To Rebuild or Part Out-That is the Question!


2017 has ended and there is a new year upon us!  For me, 2017 was a year of learning experiences.  I especially learned that when you’re not emotionally strong, your business WILL suffer.  I believe I did my best to hide the personal issues in my life but in the end it still greatly affected my business.  Not because I was making bad decisions, but because I had an obligation to focus on my son and my shattering life at […]

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. She was an inspiration to me when we got kicked off eBay less than 2 years ago. It was what pushed me to start Hangar Swap so my fellow aviators had an amazing place to buy and sell […]

Celebrating the Day My Mother Brought This Ball of Fire into the World


Today is my birthday and I can’t tell you how excited I am to be here!  I put together a video that has some clips of my favorite activities, especially flying and riding dirt bikes.   To turn another year old is very exciting in my book because if this was before 1990, I probably wouldn’t be here. I love the career I have and the people around me.  This year is an exciting year for me because I some […]

Episode 1: First, Let Me Introduce Myself


I officially launched my Youtube Channel, Aircraft Salvage Queen.  My introduction video is up and just as any introductory video, it’s random, awkward, and ends with bloopers! If you’re a dachshund lover, I must warn you, my fat sausage dog, Dewey, is in it! Aircraft Salvage Queen Channel

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 […]
