“My #AeroPassion is making things fly.”
Sarah's Biography

Sarah graduated with a Bachelor of Applied Science in Electrical Engineering from the University of Toronto in 2005. She has spent her entire career in the Aerospace Industry, having worked at Honeywell Aerospace, Bombardier, Pratt and Whitney Canada and most recently UTC Aerospace. She has been involved with outreach activities with University of Toronto and SAE, promoting careers in engineering to high school students. She is an outdoor enthusiast, most recently having completed a 100 km hike through Northern Portugal.

Onsite Engineering Manager, UTC Aerospace Systems. Supporting development of the Bombardier Global 7000/8000 business aircraft

UTC Aerospace Systems, a division of UTC. We are one of the world’s largest suppliers of advanced aerospace products, including the electric systems, landing systems, lighting, propellers.

My job is never boring. There is always a challenge to work through.

There have been a few projects. Having been involved on the Global 7000/8000 project off and on since 2008, from the initial concept, to detail design and now to the test and verification phase. Can’t wait for this plane to fly!

I try to make a difference by listening – whether it’s an external customer voicing a concern or an internal department that is struggling with how something is done, getting people’s ideas on how we might be able to do things better, faster, stronger with repeatability and zero errors requires listening skills.

My dream is that we no longer talk about women in aerospace. Each person should be elevated based on their ability, and I hope that women will be considered in the greater aerospace community as equal contributors.

Through outreach and professional development activities, research, partnerships, thought leadership and online initiatives, we work with industry and academia to educate on the value of diversity for innovation, to inspire women to thrive and to celebrate the contributions of women in science and engineering.
