Christen’s parents named her after an airplane and took her to her first airshow at six weeks old. She grew up flying with her dad and going to Oshkosh with her family every summer. She got her Private Pilot’s Certificate in South Dakota, then finished her other ratings in Iowa near where she grew up. She is happy to be a recent New England transplant, who loves getting to fly in such a scenic place, and hopes she doesn’t mess up the local town name pronunciations on the radio too badly!
