The Chapter's membership includes airport representatives primarily from the states of California, Arizona, Hawaii and Nevada.

Assistant Vice President, Aviation WSP USA

When did you join SWAAAE and what motivated you to do so?

WSP has been attending and sponsoring SWAAAE's conferences since 2017 so we decided to make it official and joined with a Corporate Membership in 2020. I became involved in SWAAAE with the encouragement of Judy Ross of SJC as she knows that I have a special interest in mentoring students and younger professionals.
