Jessica has worked in the aviation industry for twelve years. She began in customer service at an FBO at Palomar Airport – Carlsbad, CA. She worked her way up to a supervisory position and enjoyed leading her team. She has worked in aircraft maintenance on the administrative side which helped her to better grasp another angle of the industry. Jessica later moved into a new role in Marketing and Business Development for a company who had several departments including FBO fuel sales, Charter, Management, Maintenance and Avionics. This allowed her to work closely with affluent clients, department managers, and vendors. She has worked for an aircraft charter broker, and continues to do contract work for various companies in the industry.

One of her favorite quotes is by General Douglas MacArthur is “A true leader has the confidence to stand alone, the courage to make tough decisions, and the compassion to listen to the needs of others. He does not set out to be a leader, but becomes one by the equality of his actions and integrity of his intent.”
