This is the Bio that Nanette wrote for the Most Fabulous Women Over 40 contest:

 

I have been fortunate in life, with the love and support of my family, to be able to follow my dreams.

I grew up in Galt and graduated with honours from the Galt Collegiate Institute and Vocational school. I attended the University of Western Ontario where I was selected to the Canadian Rowing team and competed internationally. I graduated with a Master’s degree in Kinesiology.

At the same time, I pursued my passion for flying. My first job was instructing flying at the Waterloo Wellington Flying Club. I then moved to Northern Ontario to fly in the bush, flying medivacs, Purolator bank runs and fire patrol.

After that I “landed” my dream job as a pilot with Air Canada. Out of 2000 pilots then, only 9 were women. This gave me the great opportunity to volunteer and speak at school career days promoting women in Aviation. Now that I am retired, I really look forward to continuing my volunteer work.

I am an avid golfer, gardener and crafter.

Sadly, I lost my Mother suddenly this past year; and my Father is now in Long Term Care with Alzheimer’s. Through this I am very fortunate to have had the support of my husband and my very good friends. It has been through their encouragement that I have entered this contest.

    Nanette taught me to fly many years ago in Sudbury . She was skilled, charming and very attractive. Seems nothing has changed. Still flying the skies of Austria, thanks for the gift, I am very grateful.

        Hello Carmen !
        Thanks for your response. I am a private pilot and every flight is still an adventure. It would be great if you could pass on my best wishes to Nanette. She taught me how to fly correctly and after many instructors she was truly the best. I have also just lost my Mom and I understand what she is going through at the moment. Perhaps my note from across the pond would also cheer her up!
        Take care!
        Louis

  4. Congratulations! What a great story! A pioneer in Canadian women in aviation (with exciting adventures to boot!) combined with such poise and grace. Obviously I was rooting for you, mom, but it’s not bad to “lose” (there are no losers in such a wonderful pageant) to Nanette.

      Thanks for your comment, Jean! Yes, we really were all winners, and had the same fun and opportunities to model on a runway. Thanks for rooting for me (since you’re my daughter I’m glad you did 🙂 ).

      I’m not really one to compete because everyone will have their own favourite. My dream came true by being in a modelling show and that makes me happy.

      I’m happy for Nanette and wish her all the best that this opportunity gives her this year and in the future! ❤
