Have confidence in yourself and tell yourself ‘you can’ twice for every time you are told ‘you can’t.’ Confidence that you can succeed is everything. Take every negative remark as a challenge to achieve more and progress to newer heights. You are able to do anything you believe you can do. You might even surprise yourself.
— Alinda Wikert, first female owner and CEO of an airline
  Erin Bosnjak, Chapter President   I was lucky enough to get involved in aviation as a teenager, thanks to being inspired by my grandfather. Since getting my license in 2000, I have enjoyed sharing aviation with others, whether it's through ground schools, school tours, or Women in Aviation!

  Valerie Thibodaux, Chapter Secretary   I was a classic airport kid who grew up with aviation, flying with my parents and getting my first job at a grass strip. Even when life interfered with flying, I never stopped loving aviation and never lost touch—being part of groups like EAA, AOPA, and Women in Aviation has helped me stay connected, and stay learning. Catch me at the chapter meetings now, because once I am back in the air, I may never come back down to earth!

  Terri Schroll, Chapter Treasurer   I’ve always been intrigued with aviation and earned my private pilot certificate in 1996. I flew for four years and then took a long break to raise kids. In 2015, I started working toward getting current again and finally achieved that goal. I plan to start training for my IFR rating soon. I’ve enjoyed meeting so many inspiring and positive people through Women in Aviation and am excited about the future!

  Purity Case, Outreach Chair   My name is Purity Case but almost everyone calls me “P”! Currently I'm a student pilot working my way towards a private pilot certificate. I'm currently in the process of be coming a Police Officer with the specialty of providing Air Support; I believe that this will be a great opportunity to obtain/use my private pilot certificate. Also, I'm currently enrolled in college obtaining my transfer associate’s degree; this will allow me to move forward with getting my bachelor’s degree in physiology.  I do have a variety of other hobbies like archery, martial   arts, and lock picking!
