I’ve worked as a finance assistant for an auto group for a few years now. Saying I’ll be overjoyed to get my academy date call is a complete understatement.

After graduating in December of 2016 I realized I was done trying to pursue medical school. Spent half of last year soul searching on what to do next. This was perfect timing.

I work as a HR services delivery analyst, basically I analyze data and make sure that people who input time on their timesheets end up actually getting paid, if they don't get paid that's when I get involved, to see why.

Got my aircraft dispatch cert and went to work for ARINC Direct (now Rockwell Collins) as a flight coordinator/follower for a few years before getting a job at a tower.

Was a supervisor in Airfield Operations at one of the busiest airports in the US. Great pay, benefits, and experience. Tough to leave behind no doubt...
