What is your business all about?
With the Biology background and the operating skills needed to captain an airboat safely, I knew I could offer something special and work around my family’s schedule. I offer a very educational and exciting airboat adventure through our local swamps. We get to explore hundreds of year-old trails and make new ones, all while learning about the importance of protecting our wildlife and their habitat. We travel places that an ordinary boat cannot go; over land and trees that have fallen, see all kinds of wildlife, and every trip is different.
As I was contemplating leaving the family business, it was a real struggle because I thought that this is where I was supposed to be in life. I was working with my father and brother and because we all “wanted to be the boss”, I knew I needed to make a change.
One frustrating day, I felt the presence of God’s hand on my shoulder, He turned me around, and walked me out the door! I didn’t look back!
So, when people ask me on the boat about how I came to do this job, I give them a great big smile and share my story. God led me to where I am today and drives me every day. If the door opens to share with them about the love from God, I most certainly take the opportunity to let them know the work He has done in my life.
