As an Aviation Practice Lead, Autumn has long been enamored with aviation and the commercial airline industry, thanks to frequent travels as a child, including a trip when she was eight to visit the Boeing Museum near Everett’s Paine Field. In 2019, this passion came full circle when she led the Environmental Assessment that cleared the way to begin commercial air service from Paine Field.
Autumn has nearly 20 years of experience in the aviation field. She has a strong background in aviation noise, environmental planning (NEPA), airport facility planning, and aviation safety. Her project experience has included facilities ranging in size from small general aviation airports to major large-hub air carrier airports in the United States and abroad. She is experienced with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and airport certification requirements and skilled in documenting and presenting the results of technical analyses in a manner that can be clearly understood by the public.
Autumn holds a Master of Science in Aeronautics (with a specialization in Aviation/Aerospace Safety Systems) and a Bachelor of Science in Aviation Business Administration, both from Embry Riddle Aeronautical University. She also serves on the Board of Directors for the Tony Jannus Distinguished Aviation Society.
