From Rotors to Routers

 

 

Though I’ve always been a creative person with the need to make things, I became absolutely obsessed with Helicopters when I was 19. Everything about them was so fascinating┬áto me and after a lot of thought I decided to put my creative side on hold and pursue a career in the Helicopter Industry. I became a commercially licensed helicopter pilot in 2010 and moved to BC to follow a dream I never even imagined I would have.

Like Father Like Daughter

 

I’ve been following my dad around his shop since I was knee high and anything I know is because he taught me. One of those guys who can do it all he’s never shied away from a challenge and I’m grateful I inherited that gene.

Opening Windows

 

After becoming a licensed pilot, I moved around the country for years looking for work. Leaving behind my boyfriend/partner and family. When I got a job close to home I was over the moon… but a year later, my contract was up and I was let go. With no job and no desire to move back out west I decided it was time for another huge change.

One door closed but it opened up this amazing window of opportunity for me to start my own business.

Not getting a real job was the best decision I ever made in my life up to this point. There’s no looking back now and I still continue to surprise myself with what I’m capable of.
