More About Me

This is the place I tell my story.

This is the place I tell me story. The story of triumph and defeat. The story of marriage and of babies. The story of adventure and mishaps. The story of the good, the bad, and always the real. I hope leave this place encouraged and better for having been here. 

I'm a speaker, writer and former flight attendant with my head in the clouds and my feet reluctantly on the ground. I own and manage Flight Attendant Career Connection, which provides coaching, resources, encouragement and community to aspiring flight attendants. My first book, Looking Skyward: Turn Your Flight Attendant Dreams into Reality has helped hundreds land a job in the airline industry. 

I'm married to Jason and we have two children born just 18 months apart. Ty and Emily Grace keep me busy and laughing. Running a small business while being a stay at home mom is hard but amazing.

  6. Dear lovely blogger,
    My name is Julieta Frega and I’m writing you from Chile to tell you about SanBelle, the clothing line I represent. SanBelle is a unique, innovative new brand of infant clothing (newborn to 12 months) that uses textiles made with nanotechnology that protects babies and keeps them safer. Our soft, comfortable fabrics, which are imported from France, contain tiny particles of silver in their fabrics.
    I would love to send you an email so maybe we can offer a giveaway!
