Isn't is FUN having family here at Southwest?! My dad is now a retired pilot who joined SWA in 1984 when I was five years old. His passion and love for the Company inspired my older brother and I to interview for positions here in 2004. (Michael and I had interviews one day apart and he is now a PHX First Officer.) Whenever my brother and I joke that me, his younger sister, has a more senior Employee number at SWA, my dad jokingly reminds us that he has a four digit Employee number. (Point for dad!) The three of us love sitting around and talking Company business as well as listening to stories from my dad about the 80s and 90s here. I love that the three of us having something so special to share. Even though we work in very different areas of the Company and contribute very differently to the Company's success, we are all part of the SWA family. Although I sit at a desk in headquarters every day, I am constantly thinking about my brother flying around the country and giving our Customers a safe, fun flight. What a joy to have that connection!
