Employee Spotlight – Lindsey Remington
Since September of 2003, Lindsey Remington has been a discernible asset to our Domestic Operations department.
Formerly working for a local grocery store, Lindsey set her sights at finding a career with a company that would allow her the opportunity to grow. With having been introduced to Airways by a friend, she loved the family atmosphere and soon after began her journey as a Special Accounts Manager.
Lindsey loves the task of helping customers solve problems as well as the challenge of thinking and acting quickly. She loves being part of a team, and it has given her a wide-scope of what is being shipped in the freight forwarding industry. She likes the day to day interactions with customers and vendors from all over the United States. The family atmosphere to Lindsey is more than just colleagues and co-workers. Her brother Albert Kirk, is also an employee of Airways and part of the Domestic team.
Born and raised in Northwest Arkansas, Lindsey grew up on a small dairy farm in Lincoln, Arkansas. She loved animals growing up, and has very fond memories of her childhood.
Lindsey has two daughters, Sarah who is twelve years old, and River who is nine. She loves spending time with her girls, and visiting with family. Some of Lindsey’s favorite things to do outside of work, are listening to music, fishing and hiking. She also has a fondness for nature photography, as well as painting and drawing.
Kind and caring, Lindsey’s generosity goes above and beyond. To this day, Lindsey’s most notable accomplishment has been raising her two girls. She loves watching them grow and helping them become the young ladies they are today. Something that might surprise you about Lindsey, is that she was a surrogate mother for a family in New York.
Lindsey is greatly inspired and influenced by her ninety-four-year-old grandmother. Who is strong, stubborn and has the biggest heart of anyone she knows. She also “makes the best hot rolls around”!
Her relentless work ethic and team oriented mindset have been an essential element in her productivity at Airways Freight, and we are honored to have Lindsey Remington as part of our organization.
Employee Spotlight – Kara Carlile
A progeny of long time employee, Kevin Willyard, Kara Carlile has always appreciated and admired the family atmosphere at Airways Freight.
Born in Austin, Texas and raised in Oklahoma, Kara visited Arkansas frequently, and spent a lot of her childhood visits with her Dad and her “Airways family”.
While working for five years previously as a hairdresser in Norman, Oklahoma, she decided to make a career move and relocate to Arkansas where she joined her Dad and the Airways Freight team. A place she had fond memories of, and has always felt so much a part of.
With her charismatic charm and wit to boot, Kara’s fresh outlook and enthusiastic work ethic has earned her a position in the Customer Service department of Airways. As part of a succeeding generation of outstanding predecessors Kara has made a lasting impression and continues to make her mark.
Some of Kara’s favorite things to do outside work, are reading, camping, canoeing and spending time with her Husband Josh, along with her dogs Ramona and Hank! She loves spending time with friends, and going to thrift stores and estate sales. Kara also loves and is slightly obsessed with all things Harry Potter. She also likes to read about unsolved mysteries and true crime.
For sixteen years, Kara participated in dance. She learned everything from tap and jazz to ballet. One of her most treasured memories was of her Dad joining in for a dance recital. The dance was to “Men in Black” by Will Smith, and he wore a black suite and sunglasses, like the character in the movie. Under his jacket was a sign that read “Kara Rae’s Dad”. Embarrassing as it was, it is a memory she will never forget!
With dancing in her background, it’s no surprise that Kara loves musicals. Her favorites being, Rent, Hamilton, Wicked and Cats.
Kara’s drive and ambition, come from a long line of strong women in her family. She is beyond thankful to be surrounded by her Mother, Step-mother, Grandmothers and Aunts and having been taught the many different things that have molded her into who she is today.
One of Kara’s favorite quotes is by F. Scott Fitzgerald – “For what it’s worth, it’s never too late to be whoever you want to be. I hope you live a life you’re proud of and if you find that you’re not, I hope you have the strength to start over.”
Other than knowing all the lyrics to every Hanson song, Kara’s palpable enthusiasm goes beyond her talent for Hanson lyrics, but shows in her every day work ethic. She is loyal and optimistic, sincere and forthright. She has proven to be an integral part and legacy to Airways Freight’s innovative generation.
