March is Women’s History Month, and this year we wanted to share a few quick, 60-second interviews to highlight the amazing women at Envoy who work hard, inspire others and lead our airline into a successful future. In the last interview of this month, we speak with Elise Shirey who is the Director of Air Operations Recruitment.
What is your Envoy story?
I started my career as a Flight Attendant with Envoy, then American Eagle, in 2000 at 19 years old. I “gave up my wings” in 2017 and have been a part of Air Ops Recruitment ever since.
What’s the most rewarding part about your current role?
Seeing people achieve their goals. Whether it’s the groups we recruit or our internal personnel, I love being able to help others find a home with Envoy.
What woman has inspired you in your life and/or career?
My oldest sister. She is the hardest worker I know, and I admire her work ethic and her balance of her family and career success.
What might people not know about you?
My first job was at the Palace of Wax in Grand Prairie, Texas.
