My Responsibilities
As a flight instructor, my responsibilities are to (1) keep you safe, (2) help you learn, and (3) make the learning fun. I will serve as a guide to you as you start your aviation journey, helping you and giving you tips and tricks along the way. My main goal as a flight instructor is to help you realize your full potential as a pilot.

My Bio
I was born in St. Louis, Missouri and moved to the Nashville area with my family in 2014. I have been interested in aviation, starting with flight simulation, since I was young. Subsequently, I’ve read all the books and watched all the movies I could get my hands on! I wouldn’t be pursuing aviation as a career if it weren’t for the endless support of my family.

My Hobbies
Playing the violin, taking my dog on walks, reading, watching TV, playing video games.

My Favorite Thing About Wings
The broad experience of Wings’ flight instructors and administration helps create safe, capable, and confident pilots.

My Motto
“It’s not the destination, it’s the journey.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

My Message to You
If you come to each lesson prepared, your training will be much more efficient and you’ll save a lot of money. And you’ll have more fun because you’ll know what’s going on!
