Airport Engineering and Planning

 

Why did you choose this career? I started at Gale as an administrative professional in 2013. My willingness to take on increasingly challenging responsibilities and enthusiasm for aviation led to a promotion into the planning realm. I’m so grateful for the opportunity to pursue this rewarding career!

What is your favorite part of your job? My favorite things about my job are that I’m challenged to learn and grow every day, encouraged to collaborate with colleagues and clients, given the freedom to take ownership of my projects, and provided with sound mentoring that is unique to my professional development needs.

Who are you outside of Gale? Outside of Gale, my main hobbies include singing, songwriting, and playing guitar – I even perform on occasion! I also enjoy hikes with my husband and dog, monthly brunch dates with my friends, and hosting family football parties – Go Patriots!

Fun Fact: What was your favorite movie when you were a kid? I remember one summer vacation long ago (back in the days of VHS) my brother and I watched the movie Wayne’s World from start to finish almost daily. I haven’t watched it in ages, but it’s still the source of many of our inside jokes.
