Kenmore Air Pilot Michelle Rohter

Not that long ago, two passengers asked me about the female pilot. “We want to know about her,” they said. While Kenmore Air has more than one female pilot, Michelle Rohter is the only one who is full time. In fact, she’s the first woman to fly full time at Kenmore and the first woman [...]

I’d like to invite you to stop for a moment and look around. What do you see? From the window of the small café where I am sitting, a mom zips up her daughter’s coat. Three bikes stand upright, chained to bike stand. I can just make out the one piece of paper pinned to the reader board near by, “Exceptional Babysitter. Call for Rates.”

Are you taking in how blessed we are?
