Passionate About Inspiring Others
I am a strong advocate for youth in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). With an Aviation Management degree from Southern Illinois University, I have cemented an impressive curriculum vitae in Aviation in both the professional and academic arenas.
For nearly a decade, I've opened doors for youth to a career field that for most, is still very foreign. My focus is to get more African Americans, females and other undeserved and underrepresented populations interested in Aviation STEM careers. Our AeroStar programs offer youth strategies and tools for a future beyond their imagination and is literally giving "Wings to Dreams."
I have been featured in numerous media outlets: radio, news publications, magazines and most notable on NBC, ABC, FOX, PBS, and Forbes.
