Many thanks to Rotor Media and , the director of public relations and communications for the Helicopter Association International, for a recent write up on my autobiography, One Life Lost, Millions Gained: The Story of a Flight Nurse Turned MedAire CEO.

“Joan is an absolute giant in the field of aviation. By celebrating her amazing story we can inspire others to break through boundaries, chase their dreams, and change the world for the better,” says Ed Bolen, President and CEO of the National Business Aviation Association.


In 2019, Joan was inducted into the International Air & Space Hall of Fame. In 2020, she was enshrined in the National Aviation Hall of Fame, joining other aviation pioneers such as the Wright brothers, William Boeing, Charles Lindbergh, Amelia Earhart, Buzz Aldrin, and Neil Armstrong.

The book is available in paperback, Kindle, and hard cover — a perfect gift for the holidays!
