Favorite part of your job: Not only do I have the pleasure of working side-by-side with one of my childhood friends, our clients are my community. San Antonio is what we call a “small BIG town” – everyone knows everyone! We are truly one big family at the San Antonio base and it just makes my job that much more enjoyable.
Describe the Jet Linx team in one word: Collaboration. It doesn’t matter what department you belong to – our goal is to be the best in the business. I am grateful to work with those who strive for excellence, who aren’t afraid to learn as we grow, and who support each other unconditionally.
Favorite Jet Linx memory or experience: Sending off my first flight. I remember being a little nervous but VERY excited. There is something so satisfying in seeing the final product of your hard work and efforts made on behalf of our clients to exceed their expectations.
Favorite thing about San Antonio: The margaritas!
Little known fact about yourself, or favorite hobby: I am a major yogi! It is my favorite thing to do in my free time and I love to encourage others to try it out.
What someone find surprising about your job: Being a Flight Concierge member is not just welcoming clients into the hangar and onto the aircraft, it’s about the experience we create. It’s about putting together an unforgettable flight for the passengers no matter what obstacles might occur. There’s alway an opportunity to be better and strive for more!
