Archival Uniform Collection

I was born in Upper Darby, PA and grew up in Tampa, FL. My flying starting in 1968 when I became a stewardess for Northwest Orient. In 1969 I started flying with American and retired in 2010. During that time I was a Stewardess in DCA, a supervisor in ORD and DCA, and then an International Flight Attendant at IOR.

I was National President of the Kiwi Club 1994-1996 and am now currently serving as Curator of the TKC Archived Uniform Collection. My experience and love of our uniforms led me to writing a book, “With Wings of Silver and Gold’ about the uniforms and history of American Airlines 1933-2010.
