Webster’s defines perseverance as: continued effort to do or achieve something despite difficulties, failure, or opposition
I’ll save the details for a @pilottopilot episode someday, but to say this journey has tested my perseverance is an understatement. 10 years in an unfulfilling career.....4 years of flight training thanks to scheduling conflicts, weather delays, aircraft accidents (NOT MINE!)...my first airline....a long furlough....my second airline.....a life threatening family illness....leaving aviation for 2 years....you could say there were times that I wondered if these brick walls were there to challenge me or stop me.
I am beyond excited to start the next chapter of my career with #JetBlue. I have admired this company since their first flight, and I’m honored and humbled to be joining the team. Lot of people to thank, but none more so than my parents for setting me on this path, and my travel partner for life @stephaniebrennerkirksey for walking it with me.
