Karen joined the FAPA team in May of 2013 to work alongside Judy Tarver and Claudette Carroll helping our Premier members turn their interviews into job offers.  She comes to FAPA after working for a number of years as a Pilot Recruiter at American Eagle Airlines.  During this time, Karen worked closely with Claudette Carroll in the hiring of several thousand pilots for American Eagle.

Karen will use the experience she gained in reviewing pilot applications and resumes, interviewing potential candidates and assisting with the human resource process to give each FAPA pilot the greatest opportunity to achieve a successful airline interview.  She gained knowledge and experience through the extensive recruitment process, as well as her opportunity to assist with the weekly pilot review board, attending aviation conferences such as OBAP and NIFA and planning and conducting pilot job fairs across the U.S.

In addition, as a Pilot Recruiter, Karen gained experience through her involvement with a number of Aviation Bridge Schools and Universities, as well as several airline training companies and aviation flight schools.

Karen brings a passion for aviation and technology to the FAPA team.  She is married to a retired Air Force F-16 pilot, who is now a pilot at a major airline.

I couldn’t have walked into the interview, ready to go, without the confidence and advice you were able to give me. FAPA really came through for me in a huge way, and I have you to thank for that.
