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. Now, this is not the case with everyone but a lot of pilot’s are timid to try to get a medical after a health issue arises because once the FAA denies you, it becomes difficult to obtain it again. I am the pilot that had open heart surgery and has a third class […]
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 […]
For my birthday, David decided to surprise me. He has never really surprised me in the 8 years we have been together, at least not on this level. I don’t do well with surprises. I am a control freak and when I’m not in control is stresses me out. There are two parts to this series because it was too long and just too good to put all into one. I really hope you enjoy making fun of me and […]

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 […]
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 […]

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 […]
