What year did you join AAAE?


Who is your industry mentor?

Steve Ford, Superintendent of Operations at Sikorsky Memorial Airport. Steve was an Army Veteran, helicopter pilot and Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University graduate. My first airport operations positions after college was working for Steve at BDR. He taught me the basics about operating a general aviation airport. Through that experience, I gained practical knowledge that has helped me throughout my career. Steve passed in 2016, after a head injury.
