Resumé

200 hrs flying experience

I'm a highly determined and hard working individual who has successfully balanced the demands of an international athletic career with those of secondary education. My enthusiasm and passion for flying have lead me to pursue my ambition of becoming an airline pilot. In March 2015, I graduated from FTE Jerez as Best Overall Pilot on my course. Later in 2017, I will undergo an A320 Type Rating with one of Europe's leading airlines. I aspire to apply my professional attitude and discipline developed as an athlete to the flight deck environment as a First Officer, with a view to developing my career as a Captain. Beyond the flight deck, I aim to use my sporting and aviation backgrounds to make a difference. I hope I can inspire young people, especially women, showing them they can achieve anything they put their mind to.
