Describe the Jet Linx experience/team in one word: Dedication.
Favorite Jet Linx memory or experience: During our acquisition of Meridian Air Charter, to qualify crewmembers in the most efficient manner, we provided a training syllabus that had not been used before and our contract training provider was actually able to adopt and implement the new course syllabus.
Favorite thing about Omaha: The variety of activities, entertainment, and culture.
Little known fact about yourself, or favorite hobby: I am an amateur leatherworker and woodworker.
What might someone find surprising about your job: Learning is a continual activity for me in hopes of providing fresh and interesting material in a manner that can be absorbed by experience levels ranging from crewmembers who have joined the world of high performance jets to those with thousands of hours of air carrier operations.
