When you were a kid, were there any early activities that might indicate you’d one day become a pilot?
In my childhood there was not a single thing that may suggest I would grow up to be a pilot. No members of my immediate and extended family are even involved in the aviation industry. I was merely trying to decide what major I would declare at CWU… I knew about their flight program so in the summer of 2013 I took a Discovery Flight at Snohomish Flying Service where I was immediately hooked on flying. I then earned my Private Pilot License and continued the rest of my training at CWU.
What was the circumstance that led you to the DZ for the first time?
I work at the flight school next door, Snohomish Flying Service, and see the jump plane operating regularly and knew right away that I needed to get involved. And so far it’s been a ton of fun!
