What I use Linkedin for:
Networking, connecting others, meeting other like-minded professionals, learning, educating.
My mission is to help women in aerospace and other male dominated industries understand and use their unique financial power. Typically women, even our nation’s top earners, are told what NOT to do with our money instead of educating us about what we CAN do.
Number of Followers:
Aerospace & Aviation
Who am I:
Mother, daughter, friend, sister, bad-ass, sports lover, financial advisor who is passionate about helping women in aerospace realize they can ENJOY LIFE NOW and still not have to eat cat food in retirement. I’m tired of women being told what they can’t do instead of teaching them use their wealth to do whatever they want to do.
What I do:
I help established females in aerospace achieve financial freedom and peace of mind around their wealth so they can enjoy life on their own terms, NOW and in the future. I often describe myself as an “air traffic controller of finances”. A financial life is like an airport with airplanes taking off, landing, and flying in all different directions at different times. So, I manage all the “air traffic” to create a customized playbook that is easy to understand and execute.
Why you should follow me on Linkedin:
My mission is to help women in aerospace and other male dominated industries understand and use their unique financial power. Typically women, even our nation’s top earners, are told what NOT to do with our money instead of educating us about what we CAN do. LinkedIn is a great platform to share insight, while learning from others. I also find a lot of joy and pride in being a connector. LinkedIn allows me to put my contacts in touch with the people who can help them or be a resource.
Who I follow on Linkedin
Too many to name but many from your 2021 list of the Top 100 Women to Follow in Aerospace including Fiona McKay, Leading Ladies of Aerospace and Defense, Gloria Bouillon, Kimberly Perkins, Nicole Malachowski, Christine Korp, Erika Armstrong, Shelli Brunswick, Jill Meyers. These women are so educated, inspiring, and willing to share their knowledge and experience with others.
I also enjoy following Paulie Rose, Lindsey Gamell, Ellen Melko Moore because I love the way they use LinkedIn and teach others how to effectively use it.

Carol’s Successful Post
This post was based on numerous conversations with women I’ve talked to over the years. It’s authentic and unfortunately, it totally resonates with my audience because many women are still treated like this.
