Taesha is a Kansas native that moved to Georgia at a very early age. She participated in softball, cross country and track at Woodland High School. Her performance earned her a 2-year scholarship at Tallahassee Community College where she was named Student Athlete of the Year in 2014. Next, she attended Campbell University on a 2-year softball scholarship where she obtained a bachelor’s degree in Communications. She finished top-10 in the league in runs, hits, triples, plate appearances, and at-bats. She was named to the Big South first team all-conference while maintaining President's Honor Roll for her grades.
Shortly after graduating, Taesha landed a job as a flight attendant. Hungry for more, she decided to take a dive in the front seat. After experiencing a Discovery flight, her love for aviation sky-rocketed! Self-motivated, she began teaching herself ground lessons before taking pilot lessons. Currently, she possesses her Private Pilot’s License and is working to achieve her goal to become a cargo pilot.
With great honor, she accepted a scholarship with the Red Tails Foundation in summer of 2021. Being a part of the Red Tails Foundation, has allowed her to gain experience beyond the classroom and helped offer her one-on-one instruction. She admits flying can be challenging, but like pilots say, when life gives you crosswinds, apply rudder pressure.
