President | Chapters Chair | Director

Angel was bitten by the aviation bug on a school trip to Paris, France.  She attended A&P school at Michigan Institute of Aeronautics, just outside of Detroit.  While at school, she worked part-time at UPS loading the airplanes, and holding flashlights for the mechanics every chance she got.  After obtaining her A&P certificate and FCC license, she attended the Women in Aviation Conference in 2003 where she was introduced to the power of networking.  Angel was then introduced to the Association of Women in Aviation Maintenance (AWAM) and found a community within the small aviation world that supported her in her endeavors.  Her first job was Timco Aviation Services in Goodyear, Arizona.  While in Arizona she gained valuable mechanical experience working on nearly every type of commercial jet from MD-80’s to the Boeing 777.

She became a Lead Mechanic taking on the responsibility of running her own crew.  She kept UPS on her radar and when she discovered the Management Trainee Program, she went back to school and earned her Bachelor of Science in Aviation Maintenance Management from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. 

After attending another Women in Aviation Conference where she renewed her AWAM national membership, she became more involved in networking to improve her professional footprint.  She now works for UPS Airlines as a Quality Control Supervisor.  In addition to her supervisor responsibilities she also holds the office of Chapter Secretary in the local Louisville AWAM chapter and is involved in the many volunteer opportunities for community outreach and education. Her passion is reaching youth to show them the world of aviation is open to everyone.
