Her spirit of adventure was nurtured in a military family, with father, uncle, and husband serving in the U.S. Air Force, and son serving in the U.S. Army. Her father was once transferred 22 times in 22 months, therefore, her playmates came from diverse cultures. Inspiration from family military history—which includes relatives serving in World War II, Korean War, and Vietnam—led her to become an FAA-certified flight instructor; she was the only pilot flying a single engine airplane round trip from Florida to Alaska and back to Florida. (In Alaska, she met fellow trailblazer Astronaut Sally Ride and visited an Inuit village.) A feminist, she was the first female Teamster in Chicago (second in U.S.) and belonged to the initial group of women to pass the Illinois State Trooper’s Exam.
