My journey so far

I spent 3 years testing turboprops and while lead on a project was introduced to Human Factors. Since then I have spent 2 years as a Flight Deck Human Factors Engineer, am almost done with an MS in Human Systems Engineering and spend my days developing the newest and most advanced business aviation cockpits. I'm loving it.

What does this graph mean?

How I try to show up at work


I enjoy a collaborative environment, but still value time to focus on my own work alone, where I'm not the most experienced so I have opportunities to learn

My areas for growth

Clearly communicates purpose and visionWilling to openly have difficult conversationsMentors and develops teammates for their growth

During times of high workload I find it helpful to take a breath and looking over my work to find small errors and items I missed to increase the overall quality before considering it 'complete'. This is something I can forget to do in order to stay caught up.

How I stand out

Collaborates effectively with teammatesMaintains clear long term vision that drives decision makingMaintains effective work life balanceMakes decisions promptly, even with uncertaintyInvests and is interested in personal and professional growth

I am able to learn quickly and enjoy being creative.
