Favorite part of your job: Interaction with my clients.
Describe the Jet Linx experience/team in one word: Enthusiastic
Favorite Jet Linx memory or experience: What I most look forward to is hearing my new member tell me how amazing their first flight with Jet Linx was. That is the number one best feeling, when you exceeded their expectations and they cannot wait to fly with Jet Linx again. That is when you really earn their trust and a friendship.
Little known fact about yourself: I love outdoor, motor sport activities. I started racing Go Karts about a year ago and that has been my newest obsession – before karts, it was dirtbikes. I have put dirtbikes on the backburner since it is a very high impact on your body sport. Karting is an awesome way to still get the adrenaline rush of going 80mph on a straight away only a few inches off of the ground! Recently, work has taken up majority of my time, but when I do have a spare day I will be at the track.
What might someone find surprising about your job: I wear a lot of hats at Jet Linx Houston – every day I could have a new title. But I love every hat given to me!
