I am very honored to have received the NTBAA Career Advancement Scholarship. I applied for this scholarship to cover the NBAA 6 Months to CAM program that began on July 1st. This upcoming September will mark 20 years since I accidentally ended up in aviation when I took a part-time job in the aviation library for the Part 147 program at Tarrant County College. I never would have imagined the career trajectory that decision would put me on. Fast forward to now and I see the CAM credential as an important piece in my education and career progression. The CAM has been a goal of mine for a couple of years, and now with a structured approach to preparing for the exam along with the opportunity to network with aviation professionals across the globe, I am confident in the process and the outcome. This could not have been accomplished without this scholarship and I am very grateful to be a recipient.
