My most successful post was about a young woman I’ve been mentoring for several years named Serena Hart. I helped her get into the Navy and into a flight training spot, and after two years of intense training, she soloed in a jet for the first time around five months ago. The number of views as of today is 384,867.

This post is my most successful because it highlights why the work of the Women in Aviation Advisory Board is so important. It’s very unlikely this headline would be shared if a male had been named CEO. We have to be brave and highlight these moments, otherwise people won’t understand that there is an issue. it’s about awareness. I was respectful and just brought awareness to the fact that words matter.

From a statistics standpoint, my March 2022 Blog titled Navigating Schedule Flexibility and Contract Pilots has the best stats at over 8,000 impressions.
But I believe my post of July 2017 titled The Pilot Shortage: How we got here and What’s Next had the greatest engagement. But the stats don’t go back that far. Here

My resignation post in July 2021 was the most successful post
It was a post of gratitude, appreciation and a deep reflection of the past years of experience and memories gained, but successful as i had full support from my network that i was appreciated for who i was and not whom i worked for.

This is my most successful post because I share one of my best accomplishments of the year where I was recognized as one of the top visionary high school graduate leaders in the nation by Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation. I believe it was my most successful post because my network was excited to see how my work with IgnitedThinkers to spread aerospace education to all students was starting to be recognized nationally.

Recently I shared post of Architecture+Design magazine that featured my interview as Aviation Architect and my greenfield project Noida International Airport in India.
This post is my favourite as it recognises me as a woman in the role of Design and Planning Head for this prestigious project and also because it brings spotlight on Aviation Architecture which is highly specialised field with immense opportunities and needs to attract talent to support the booming aviation market in India.

I think it is nice for pilots to see the other side of the radio and for the general public to get a glimpse of what we do as air traffic controllers.
