Speaker Kim Sprague, Drone Operator and Consultant with GoHOVER  
With technological advancements on the urgent rise in so many industries, my professional experience has led me towards a new career path involving sUAS's after seeing hands-on the amazing possibilities, time and cost savings, enhanced photographic capacities and innovative approaches drone capabilities have brought to these industries and more. I have over 100 flight hours and have been ranked in the 98th percentile of pilots worldwide by DJI. I obtained my Part 107 and TRUST, Real Estate Photography and Roof & Ground Inspection certifications. I currently operate DJI drones and work as a Remote sUAS Pilot in Command in the fields of Marketing & Advertising, Commercial Real Estate, Asset & Insurance Inspections, E&U, Flora & Fauna, Security and S&R, A/E/C and CM, Surveying, etc. I have provided and/or currently provide drone services for Bees360, ConnexiCore, Hovrtek, Square Foot Photography, Loveland Innovations, Bark.com, DroneBase and Dronegenuity and am a Certified Pilot Graduate of the Flight to the Future training program with Aquiline Drones.

Previously, I have dedicated over 16 years of proposal development experience in the A/E/C and IT industries and have served as an Intelligence Specialist in the US Navy; I have pursued career paths that are driven by challenges, such as analytics, compliance analysis and solving puzzles. Figuring out how and why things work fascinates me—putting together or combining individual elements from various sources and compiling that information to develop a theory, concept, plan or proposal based on specific requirements—it’s like following a recipe. Collaborating across varied disciplines and industries, I operated as the team point-person from RFP receipt through delivery. Managing teams both independently and virtually, my expertise is in leading and coordinating the gathering of information and assignments to meet proposal and production deadlines. I embrace the utilization of creativity to portray logical, intelligent and informative aesthetics through interpretation of technical information to assist in readability and message clarity.



GoHOVER started from the ground up to the sky, literally.  
From the first hoverkart designed to drones in flight. We have a passion for aesthetics, technology, creativity and ingenuity…all while having fun implementing these elements into our work and designs. Having worked in the A/E/C industry for almost two decades, we have witnessed modern advancements in engineering and design (drone services specifically) having opened the door to endless possibilities that benefit not only the client, but the project team as a whole on various levels. Our goal is to give YOU what YOU want in the most efficient and convenient way possible. We love what we do, a little too much, and it shows in our products and through client satisfaction. We’d love the opportunity to work with you!
