I have been wanting to become a member for some time now and actually found you guys when I was applying for scholarships to start my training.  I love that there is a place I can connect with other women pilots!!  I am new to it all but I feel like anytime I go to an event or gathering I am one of the few ladies that are there (that are pilots) its crazy to me!

I have finished my private and am currently working on instrument and commercial.  I plan to go for the CFII and on from there.  I love teaching, outreach and networking.  I currently teach during the day and fly anytime I can!!!

Aviation Path:  My dad was an airline pilot.  Instead of vet school, I chose aviation.  I have been flying for two years and have my private pilot certificate and currently working on my instrument rating.

Most interesting aviation experience:  I was cut off by a B17.  It was awesome!

Why a 99?  I heard the group was very active and supportive, and I wanted to be a part of the success and growth of women in aviation.

Aviation Path:  I've loved aviation since I can remember.  Flying to SeaTac to visit relatives when I was young seemed like the best theme park ride!  I took a few glider lessons in Eastern Washington as a teenager.  I have been a private pilot since 2005 and am working on my instrument rating.

Best aviation story:  I began lessons when my husband and I were stationed at Osan Air Base in South Korea.  Several times I had to hold for a U2 or the A10s.  I got to fly in formation with them. :-)  I passed my checkride at six months pregnant with my oldest daughter.

Why a 99?  Women in aviaiton!  Why not? :-)

Mimi moved from California this spring.  She immediately sought out people and opportunities in the aviation community.  Mimi re-joined the International 99s and became a member with the Idaho 99s because it is an active flying group.  Her Citabria will be with her soon so she can experience flying with us in Idaho.
