What made you want to become an FA?
I never really considered a career in aviation, but by a very random accident, I discovered that this was what I was meant to do. I was going through some life changes and left a home business where I was working with my ex-partner. I was applying for any job that I was even remotely qualified for; I just needed something to pay the bills until I could figure out what my next steps were. I got interviewed for a customer service position with a ground handling company in Halifax, and on my first day, I fell in love with the industry. It was exciting and fast-paced and I had never worked a job where I was excited to wake up and go to work. I decided that joining the cabin crew would be the next step in my career in aviation and it has been a blast ever since.
What advice would you give to a new FA or someone interested in this career?
My advice for someone wanting to become a flight attendant would be to learn a second language; it is not always required but it is an asset. I recommend to start off by working in the airports. You will meet a lot of people already working in the industry and it is a good way to network.
What is your favourite part of your job?
My favourite part of this job is working within a great team and developing strong friendships with my colleagues.
What is your favourite Swoop destination?
I have two favourite Swoop destinations: Abbottsford and Halifax. I love Abbottsford because of the ocean air and mountain views and I love Halifax because the people are fantastic.
What does safety mean to you?
Safety to me is seeing a potential hazard and imagining all possible scenarios that can happen while ensuring I take steps to prevent it.
