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 […]

This Girl Does NOT Want to Jump Out of an Airplane [Part 2] THE REVEAL!


For those of you that have seen Part 1 of “This Girl Does NOT Want to Jump Out of an Airplane” you have waited long enough for Part 2! Disclaimer: Everything in this video is truly how I was that day, I had no notion of what was happening.  Nothing is scripted or acted out.  So basically, I’m an idiot in real life and on camera.     Music Credit: Overwerk- “WYWF” FREE DOWNLOAD : https://soundcloud.com/overwerk/wywf Follow & Share to […]

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 […]

Intro Part Two: Inspirations That Pushed a Heart Disease Survivor to Start a Vlog


Post Image

In Intro Part Two, I spoke about Gwen Stefani and Barbara Corcoran.  I have attached the article links to an excerpt of what I read.  I also attached an article from when I had open heart surgery.  If anyone is facing open heart surgery, I highly suggest Dr. Accola in Orlando.

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 […]

It’s a New Year For Fast Aviation


Post Image

A new beginning for a new year!  2015 was a very crazy year for business and for our personal lives.  Not long after being booted off Ebay in August of 2014, we were preparing for the big 2015 move of the business and into our new house. The 10 acre parcel next to Cedar Knoll in Geneva went from a large forest to a full functioning salvage yard, aircraft storage, office, and tear down facility. Every nut and bolt was […]
