What do you do at Dallas Love Field?
I am an Airport Operations Officer in the Landside Division. It is my job to make sure the terminal operates as it should and make the appropriate changes to keep the terminal operating when problems arise.
How long have you worked with the Department of Aviation?
I have been with the Aviation Department for one year and three months.
What motivates you to get up and get to work in each morning?
I like being a part of the functions of an airport. I simply enjoy working in aviation.
How important is diversity in the workplace?
Diversity is a necessity in any workplace. Working with people who have different backgrounds than yourself aids teamwork. Especially when problem solving. Each individual may take a different approach because their prior experience differs.
What’s the most interesting/exciting thing that’s happened on the job?
My most interesting experiences on the job occur when I see what I learned about in college, in a book, play out before my eyes in real life.
What three words describe you?
Positive, Extrovert, Hard-Working
What experiences have helped you most in your career?
My parents set the bar high for my academic achievement while I was in school. This taught me how to be diligent. On the social side, I once set a goal to greet everyone I knew in school. This soon became a habit and, over time, sharpened my people skills. I now use these skills to assist passengers and communicate with coworkers.
What does Black History Month mean to you?
For me, Black History Month is a time to reflect on not just the accomplishments of my people, but to recognize the outcome of the actions of those that came before me.
Are there any influential African-American role models in your life?
If there is anyone that I emulate, it would be my dad, Aubrey Green. He is a good man who believes in doing what is right and handling his business.
