What a great write up in the JDA Journal! Read all about it here. I’m honored to be called a role model for girls and other women. Yes, I was a flight nurse when I launched my startup, MedAire, and my customer base was largely male. The aviation industry was male-dominated. Thus, it was up to me to carve out a niche and convince decision-makers to trust me and MedAire.
That’s why the Women in Aviation organization is so important. It supports and heralds women in the sector, whether they are in the cockpit, in the control tower, on the tarmac, or behind the scenes innovating on behalf of airline safety.
Women in Aviation is an estimable organization with an extraordinarily worthy mission:
Women in Aviation International (WAI) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the encouragement and advancement of women in all aviation career fields and interests.
Among their activities is to identify women who may serve as role models for future aviation professionals. Joan Sullivan Garrett and Elizabeth Lund have the character, dedication, safety culture and professionalism others should admire.
