Hello. I’m a flight attendant but really just a Kansas City girl on the go.
Rewind to 2014 when I made the bold decision to trot the globe. I wanted to go far and fast but I didn’t even have a passport. I didn’t want to just travel, I wanted to do it while generating income. I spent countless hours researching everything from cruise ships to organic avocado farming. I eventually stumbled upon a blog by a woman living in Hawaii as a flight attendant and I thought “wow. This is it. I’m doing this.” I had never considered a career in aviation and I haven’t looked back.

Where has aviation taken me?
Today, as I write this, I have been to 30 states and 33 countries and traveling has drastically improved my quality of life. I have discovered the deepest parts of myself through these places and I wouldn’t have truly met myself without this journey. There is no right way to travel! I’ve taken last minute budget trips in a hostel in Dublin and by shoving an air mattress in a suitcase to sleep six friends deep in a AirBnb studio flat in Paris. I’ve had countless visits to amazing cities on layovers. I have also taken mini-vacations with some of my favorite people. Shorter trips make for spontaneous adventures!
What is Boogie Flights?
I created Boogie Flights with the mission to showcase the groovy parts of traveling. The exciting and refreshing parts, and the parts that may seem uncomfortable at times. Hopefully I encourage you to say hello to somebody you don’t know. Eat a meal you’ve never tried before. Visit a place that seems hard to reach. Most of all I hope to encourage you to simply book that trip. Boogie Flights is aimed to inspire you to dive into your wildest travel goals by creating a platform to share my social experiences and travel tips en route to wherever it is I’m going next. If you can’t go, I’m doing my best to take you with me.
Reminder: Book that trip. Let’s boogie!
