Originally from Nairobi, Kenya, she always knew she wanted to be a pilot and when life granted the opportunity to try it while on vacation in Kansas, she jumped at the opportunity. That first flight led to a whole career change from an Avionics Tech with Kenya Airways to starting all over as a student in University of Central Missouri (UCM) where she graduated with a Flight Operations Management degree and went on to complete her ratings with ATP. She currently is a CFI, CFII and MEI and enjoying every day in the skies.


I was born in Shawnee, KS and have lived here most of my life. I study at Johnson County Community College and pursued my certification through ATP Flight Schools where I received my CFI, CFII, and MEI. When I’m not flying, I’m studying, exercising, or spending time with friends and family. Traveling is a big activity of mine and one of the many things that attracted me to the aviation community. I teach private through commercial and I enjoy working with people to help them reach their goals.

” To see the world, things dangerous to come to, to see behind walls, draw closer, to find each other and to feel. That is the purpose of life.”


I was born in Buhler, Kansas. I’ve been hooked on aviation ever since I saw my first airshow. I graduated from Kansas State University with a degree in Aeronautical Technology and also received all my flight training there. I enjoy archery and running in my free time.
