Natalie first started as a flight attendant when ExpressJet was Continental Express in 1999. She has a background in teaching and the medical field. She earned two Bachelor of Arts degrees, one in Organizational Leadership and one in Psychology and Counseling. Being a flight attendant continues to be her dream job.
Natalie, since she was young, has had a heart for humanitarian work. She has led teams and been a part of relief efforts for natural disasters, medical missions, and other needs across the globe. Seeing the world has given her a broader perspective that people are more similar than they are different.
She was born in San Francisco, California and moved to New Jersey twenty years ago for the airlines. She is married with four children. It is her hope as President to continue to learn and grow and be the best representative for her fellow flight attendants.
Sandra has been a Flight Attendant with ExpressJet Airlines since 2012, based in ORD. She was born and raised in Chicago, and still lives there. She went to College Of Dupage for nursing, where she received her CNA and Pharmacy Tech certificates. She worked at a nursing home on the dementia unit as a CNA. On my off days I enjoy Spending time with my family and close friends.
She is honored she was appointed to serve as the Local Lodge Vice-President. She is excited to help and serve our Flight Attendant members.
