CAREER SUMMARY AND GOALS
Following a successful twenty-five year career within the semiconductor industry working for Intel Corporation, I decided to initiate a second career, this one in the aviation industry. I anticipated that transitioning between industries as diverse as semiconductors and aviation would not be easy, and would take me far beyond my comfort zone, but aviation has always held a deep interest of me. In anticipation of my goal, I completed a Master of Aeronautical Science degree at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. In February 2017, I secured a position as a Crew Scheduler I with Spirit Airlines at their company headquarters in Miramar, Florida. I then worked as a Sr. Records Analyst for Mesa Airlines in Phoenix, Arizona, and now as a Customer Relations Representative for American Airlines in Tempe, Arizona.
As expected, switching career paths and industries was not an easy journey, but the experience I gained during that period was invaluable. Now that I have completed the transition successfully, I am starting to explore the aviation world and determine my career path. Ultimately, I am interested in a challenging management, supervisor, or individual contributor position that exploits my existing professional skills, leverages my Master of Aeronautical Science degree, and yields tangible benefits for both my employer and the overall airline industry.
