Prior to law school, Becky worked at Quest Aircraft Company alongside designers and builders of the KODIAK. During her time there, Becky took the initiative to enroll in the company’s aircraft building program, where she learned about the aircraft design process, including riveting & cutting sheet metal, to better understand aircraft production. Her role included managing risk, liability, and domestic and international contracts. She was propelled to law school to further develop her skills and help individuals and companies successfully complete aviation transactions.
Becky joined Quest Aircraft because she believed in the mission to build nine planes and give every 10th plane to a humanitarian mission aviation organization. She continues the concept of giving back to the community through her aviation practice at Lane Powell today. She has written numerous aviation articles to raise awareness of human trafficking issues, serves in a variety of leadership positions for local organizations, and has a motto that sits at the root of all the work that she does on a daily basis: Use the Power of Aviation to Do Good.
