Growing up in Northeastern NC, I would always see Jets, Helicopters, and even Blimps fly over my backyard. I always caught myself paying the most attention to the Helos. In High school I was able to take a newly offered course “Introduction to Aviation” which set me on my path in aviation. I started my journey when I enrolled in college at Elizabeth City State University and graduated Class of 2017 with my Bachelor's in Aviation Science. During college I began taking Helicopter lessons and obtained my Private rating in 2018. Since then, I have worked at various airports and FBOs learning different aspects about the industry and getting in the air whenever possible while continuing my training.

I stepped away from Aviation for a short period of time and knew I had to go back. After hearing HeloAir mentioned frequently along my journey, I was given an opportunity to be a part of this great team at the start of 2022.
