It’s #WomenOfAviationWeek (WOAW) and we’re celebrating some of the trailblazing women in our network by sharing their storied careers and passion for the industry.
WOAW is a global awareness week that marks the anniversary of the world’s first female pilot license earned by Raymonde de Laroche in 1910. The goal of the week is to create awareness around the ongoing gender imbalance in the air and space industry and inspire the young women of today to become the aviation leaders of tomorrow.
Length of Service: I originally started my service with Swoop in 2018 as a Contract Customer Service Agent, then CSA Supervisor and Training Director before moving to Inflight in October 2021.
My typical day: Being a flight attendant is the most exciting and rewarding career choice for someone like myself. Providing safety and comfort to travellers from various backgrounds while they travel for work, pleasure and sometimes under difficult circumstances gives me great joy to know I am a part of the experience and can have a positive impact on another person's journey. Every day is different as I travel to new destinations with new faces and fresh new stories and experiences.
What does International Women's Day mean to me? International Women's Day to me is a day to celebrate the strength and accomplishments of women worldwide for their contributions but also to celebrate the amazing women in my life that have guided and inspired me to reach for my goals and dreams. In short, it's a day to pause and recognize that you can achieve anything you set out to as long as you have the desire, regardless of age or gender.
Who Inspires me: In my personal life my inspiration comes from my mother who taught me strength and resilience, and my children and future grandchildren who inspire me every day to be the best version of myself for them. I am also truly inspired by Michelle Obama, who is a true pillar of strength. In the workplace I am inspired by my fellow boss lady co-workers and Captain Candace - one of our Swoop pilots all of whom are living proof that women are strong and can be or do anything they want.
