Hello! Welcome to my little corner of the worldwide web, I’m Plane Jane and I am so thrilled you’re here.
I wanted to take a moment to introduce myself and give you a little background on the girl behind the keyboard. I will do everything in my power to keep it brief and give you the most detailed over view as possible.
I suppose I could start off by telling you where I’m from, but that seems to be a loaded question these days. The short answer is that I was born and raised in Kentucky, but over the last three years have called Atlanta, Utah and Boston “home.” I have since settled down in Park City, Utah and will be celebrating a year here in February. In a life that is constantly on the move, it’s essential to have a place to call home & I’m so lucky to have found one surrounded by mountains and incredible friends.
Becoming a flight attendant was not a lifelong dream of mine. After an eight-week pasta bender – I mean internship – in Rome, I realized that a desk scattered with pictures of places I only dreamt of visiting, was not my end game. And slowly but surely, as much as I may have tried to fight it, I realized that a flight attendant was the only logical career. So after graduating Auburn University with degrees in Public Relations and German, I applied to be a flight attendant in July 2016.
The next 8 months included a lot of uncertainty and self doubt, we now refer to that time period as “the dark days.” However, life is a funny thing and I eventually ended up living in Park City, Utah working for Sundance Institute. When March 2017 rolled around, I finally heard back from the airline and was informed that I had been offered the position. Unfortunately, my time in Park City was cut way too short and I packed up and left for training April 17th.
After spending 8 months based in Boston, I finally received my transfer to SLC and made the move back to Park City. I spend most of my days on a plane or a mountain and have a bad habit of playing more and working less. I absolutely love my job and am excited to tell you all more about in the days and months to come.
When I’m not working I prefer to be outside, ideally in the mountains and on my snowboard. In my 25 years, I have never found another inanimate object that has the power to bring me the kind of joy that my board does. When the snow melts, cooking, hiking, working out and reading are some other ideal past times, but really, I’m just trying to pass the time until the chair lifts open.
So there you have it! I don’t think brevity is always my strong point, but hopefully you were able to use those 3rd grade skimming skills and pick up on the highlights.
As always, it’s an open door policy around here, so feel free to drop me a note anytime!
