My flying journey began in 1999 where I started flying at GFT to obtain my commercial airplane license at the age of 18. Flying was a dream of mine from a very young age when I received a set of wings from an Air Canada pilot on a family vacation. In 2001, I became the first female commercial helicopter pilot to be trained in Newfoundland and 64th in Canada. If I could give advice to a new student pursuing their flying dreams, I would tell them to never give up!
