I started working at age 12 – at my Father’s office for $3/day, which was a big deal at that age. That experience helped me realize a couple of things: I liked making money and I really liked understanding how businesses operate. For me, it’s like putting together a puzzle: to be profitable, you have to make more money than you spend. In practicality, it is obviously a bit more challenging than that. But thinking outside of the box and finding new solutions and efficient ways of doing things is what keeps me focused and motivated. Balancing an efficiently run operation while staying small enough to offer that personal touch to our customers is the best thing about Wyatt Aerospace; while learning all about airplanes and the aerospace industry are the perks.
After reconstructive ACL knee surgery in college, I realized I was not going to be the next Mia Hamm and needed different life goals. During college I worked in banking and continued that until I transitioned to small business operations. I love to stay busy and my 3 pretty cool kids help me with that. I am always up for an adventure and trying new things. If I’m not coaching my son’s soccer team, at my daughter’s dance recital, or finding ways to entertain a preteen girl, you will find me enjoying the local music and art scene. Although I wasn’t raised in Arizona, it is now my home and I can’t imagine being anywhere else.
I hope you enjoy your experiences with our awesome team and I would love for you to reach out to me if you have any questions, praise or concerns at Ljones@wyattaerospace.com.
