She has been pursuing her dream to fly since she was 23 years of age, but her training has been interrupted again and again by her medical studies: she is a Registered Nurse, and a Registered Psychologist, and is currently enrolled full-time in a Nurse Practitioner program. She volunteers extensively in disaster relief programs around the world, and provides health care and public health education to the ultra-poor. She hopes to finish her pilot’s licence to enhance her ability to make the world a better place.

    I loved the selfie contest and all the great photos! Is there going to be another one? And is it limited to only BC chapter members? I’m in the Chicago chapter, but I have a bearded dragon who would love to go flying and a CFI who would hate it…so that makes it all the more fun for me.
