Hired at Delta Air Lines

Hi Judy, I flew the Tarver 1 Arrival into Reno the other day and, of course, thought of you. I hope you are well and finding time to relax although I'm sure you're swamped with interview prep. All is well at Delta. Best decision I've ever made. I'm on the A320 out of NYC and really enjoying it. Thank you for helping me get here. Enjoy the pic and hope you're doing great. Warm regards, Ryan
