I found my passion for aviation when I decided to take an impromptu introductory flight lesson out of San Carlos. From the moment I felt the wheels lift off, I’ve been hooked ever since. After receiving my B.S. in Biology at the University of Utah in 2014, I packed my bags to California to tackle a new adventure in flying.

Working as an Assistant Manager at flight school JATO Aviation for four years provided a wide range of experience in the aviation community. I received my private pilot certificate in 2016 and later obtained the rest of my ratings with ATP Flight School.

Being able to see a student find the joy in flying and succeed in their aviation goals is what motivates me as a flight instructor. I aim to tailor my teaching style to each student and ensure that they receive a thorough and enjoyable flight training experience. Advantage Aviation is an excellent school to learn at, with a variety of experienced and passionate flight instructors. I hope to see you here!
