Tell us a little about yourself?
My professional career took off in the airline business many years ago, when there were still propeller-driven aircrafts, smoking sections, you introduced yourself and held conversations with passengers seated next to you, and yes, I wore a business suit to travel in no matter the destination. The privilege of working in the aviation business offered the opportunity to grow in personal and business capacities, meet and work with exceptional people, live in fabulous cities, and travel extensively. Through these journeys, my family and I have experienced enjoying the precious insights on social, economic, and cultural diversity, learning and partaking in local traditions, and enjoying the variety of cuisine! These adventures have enriched our welfare, created life-long memories. "It's where we go, and what we do when we get there, that tells us who we are" - Joyce Carol Oats.
What is a fun fact about yourself?
I have enjoyed golfing since my mom taught me the game at age nine. After completing my chores during summer school breaks, she would drop me off at the city golf course, hand me five dollars to play nine holes, and enjoy a hot dog and soda pop at the end! She provided specific instructions as moms do, check-in with the pro shop, be courteous, follow the etiquette, learn from others how to play better, and observe how not to behave! These early lessons served me well, playing with customers, peers, family, and friends. Golf has turned out to be much like my life with numerous ways to play it, strategies to employ, selecting the right club for the shot, and recovering when it goes off-line. You connect with others in challenging settings and elements, so have a plan and acclimate, and if you are lucky enough, play it late into life and always enjoy the journey! Thanks, mom!
