I have always had a love for travel. I started my career as a flight attendant for one of the world's
premier airlines - TWA ( Trans World Airlines). I have been around the world as a flight
attendant and I still get excited when it is time to fly - and I love going and exploring new places.
My husband Whitney and I have been married for 29 years. He was a pilot for TWA and he
transitioned to American Airline in 2001 with the merger - yes, we met on a flight- he was one of
the pilots and I was in the Flight Service Manager on the flight. We have two sons and a
granddaughter. Life as a flight crew member is rewarding and tough on a family, so when we
had our children - I turned my attention to my family and left my flight attendant career.
In 2014, I decided it was time for me to do something that I was passionate about once again, my oldest is now a pilot with American Eagle and my youngest is in college studying business management. I thought I could put my travel experience to work and help others with their travels- so I became a travel advisor in a brick and mortar in the Metro St. Louis area. My love of learning and passion for travel was a perfect fit for this new role. In 2016, I joined CCRA to keep learning and making those personal connections with suppliers and agents. The next step was to go out on my own and do business my way. I took the leap applied for my TRUE number and started Skyline Travel with help and encouragement from my CCRA Chapter Director at that time. In 2018, my husband was transferred to Phoenix with American Airlines- and now we call Phoenix home. Even with the move, I have continued to grow my business and could not be happier that I took a leap of faith to do it on my own knowing I am not alone!
As the new Chapter Director for Phoenix, I am excited to assist all the members to reach their full potential with their agencies in the travel business. I have a love of learning and always challenge myself to reach new goals. I am excited to help the Phoenix Chapter members reach their professional goals and connect them with suppliers to help grow relationships in our area. The SKY is the limit! Experience The Excitement of Travel with the CCRA Phoenix Chapter! .
