Kiersten is and always has been a pilot. It has defined her since she was a young woman looking up into the sky, watching her mother skydiving. Now, she is a First Officer for American Airlines. Kiersten is looking forward to being a part of the NGPA Leadership team, to help further connect and advocate for women pilots from all facets of the industry. After attending the NGPA Winter Warm Up conference this year, she realized that bringing female pilots and other members of the aviation industry together to celebrate their love for flight has the potential to make the flight deck and society at large more inclusive. Kiersten is excited to play a major role in the leadership of the NGPA Women’s Committee.
