St. Paul Regional Turbine Center
From the beginning of my career, I have been a turbine engine mechanic. Back in early 2000, I worked for another maintenance facility, and was looking to advance my knowledge and career. I was excited to learn that Dallas Airmotive had a Regional Turbine Center located in Minneapolis, MN. I hand delivered my resume to the manager at the time and soon after was excited to learn I was hired!
I stay motivated by the people I work with here. One thing that I value is helping others to achieve their goals, so working with my dedicated team to solve problems and make things happen is very rewarding.
I enjoy seeing new technicians in the facility and how excited they are about aviation. We all have the same interest, which makes it very easy to get excited about the future of the industry. We actually enjoy our job and sharing our knowledge with each other.
As a young child, my grandfather and I would talk about airplanes. He always had aircraft magazines along with schematics for me to look at. I would spend hours reading and looking them over. As I got older, I never lost this interest. I even kept some of these magazines and plans, and recently passed them onto my son and daughters.
