Title at Volansi: Director of Global Services

Joined the team: 2021

Hometown: Charleston, South Carolina

Tell us a little bit about your background and the work you did before joining the Volansi team?

I joined the Volansi team after spending over 26 years at FedEx, first as a Senior Account Executive and then as a District Sales Manager. Eventually, I made my way up to Worldwide Account Manager!

In your own words, what do you do at Volansi?

My title is Director-Global Services. My job is to work with health care and logistics customers to build relationships and find opportunities to provide Volansi drones as a solution to persistent logistics issues.

What do you like to do in your spare time?

I love spending time with my husband, gardening, cooking and traveling. We have a big circle of friends here that we get together with on a regular basis. I also love to spend time with my two grandchildren, Roman and Ellie!

Who are your heroes in aviation, drone, or logistics history? Why?

Amelia Earhart. She did what no one thought she could do and did it with such confidence. I also love reading the stories about her life outside the plane. My favorite story is when she broke up a White House dinner and took Eleanor Roosevelt on a night flight to Baltimore, still in her evening gown and gloves!

We are in the dawn of unmanned flight and autonomous mobility. What are the applications that excite you most?

The ability to improve access for people around the world. We can change lives with that access and I’m excited to be part of the effort to make that happen.
