I never thought my dream of learning to fly would ever become a reality until I discovered the San Diego Chapter of The Ninety-Nines, Inc, Southwest Section! They are an amazing source of support and encouragement and I will forever be grateful for them!

The Ninety-Nines have been wonderful to me professionally and personally. So much so, I have been a member for 25 years. As a new pilot, my chapter supported me when my flight training encountered hurdles and I made many friends along the way. Networking with those friends helped me get my first professional job. A few years later, the Ninety-Nines Amelia Earhart Memorial Scholarship Fund provided me with a Boeing 737 type rating to bolster my qualifications to advance my career. Now I am in the position to support and mentor others in my chapter in the same way. Aviatrix to aviatrix and friend to friend, the Ninety-Nines are like no other organization.
