ith 2012 behind us, we have successfully overcome the threat of the world coming to an end. This means that New Yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s resolutions can continue and you can plan on making this year even better than the last. Maybe 2012 wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t your year. The good news is, 2013 means you can put last year behind you and start with a clean slate. If you are considering a new look and a new direction for your life, this issue of HerSide could be the perfect issue to help you take those ďŹ rst steps. Throughout this issue of HerSide, you will notice a reoccurring theme of New Year, New You and how you can make 2013 your best year yet. You will ďŹ nd tips on reassessing your career and deciding if the career you have chosen is actually beneďŹ cial to you. Learn the steps you can take to get your career back on track and make it the dream job you have been looking for. Consider indulging in a head-to-toe makeover. A new look can be a positive reďŹ&#x201A;ection on your attitude and self esteem and could be just what you need to make a fresh start. The new year also means new styles, so read up on what our local beauty and fashion experts have to say about trends for 2013. Take a chance and enter to win a free makeover from Cutters Hair Studio and Spa or nominate someone you feel deserves a makeover. Another key to enjoying a new year is refreshing your home. Doing it on a budget can be tough but by following some do-it-yourself tips you can stay on track. Repurposing your old furniture by giving a table a new paint job or turning an old dresser drawer into storage gives a whole new feeling to an old piece and brings out the crafter within you. Featured in this issue you will read about a local nonproďŹ t whose goal is to empower women to be the best they can be. Through leadership events and fundraisers this group of women work to build better futures for the young women and girls who will go on to be our future leaders and inspirers. When you think of womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s careers, aviation is not likely to be among your top guesses. Three women, based out of the Wayne County Airport, have all taken on the unique career of becoming women pilots. These three women began their careers in very different eras. Being different ages and joining into the world of aviation from different backgrounds, all three women share very different yet similar perspectives on what itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like to travel among the clouds. You may notice some familiar faces as you check out the models for the fashion page. I would like to give a shout-out to all of The Daily Record sales representatives for all their help, whether being a supermodel for the day, getting me in touch with our local advertisers for mini stories or just selling ads to make this magazine possible. I could not have done it without their help. 2


This particular issue of HerSide has been the most challenging and yet the most exciting issue I have put together. Covering a variety of different topics that impact women, I hope that each woman who reads through this issue can ďŹ nd something to relate to their lifestyle. As always, send in any suggestions you may have for a story or if you know someone you feel should be spotlighted in an upcoming issue of HerSide.

New Year, New Career?

A new year marks a great time to reassess your career.... The dawn of a new year is a great time to take stock of several things in your life, including your career. The spirit of rejuvenation that characterizes a new calendar year makes this an ideal time to examine your job, where it's going and if there's anything you can do over the next 12 months to further your goals and aspirations. When reassessing your career, ask yourself the following questions and be honest when answering them.

Is now a good time to move on? Another thing men and women must consider when reassessing their careers is the economic climate. Of course, the economy has not been thriving for the last several years. As a result, many people have understandably clung to their jobs, fully recognizing the high unemployment rate has created a highly competitive job market that offers no guarantee of finding work. However, as much as the economy has struggled, for some people, the last few years have been a good time to make a career change. This all depends on your field of work and whether it is thriving (some fields have actually fared well throughout the recession) or struggling. If your research determines it's an especially risky time for you to change careers, it's probably best to put a career change on the back burner for the time being.

What do you enjoy about your job?

When reassessing your career, a host of factors will eventually The grass always seems greener on the other side, but most influence your decision. But the dawn of a new year makes a people, when being honest with themselves, will admit there great time to begin the process of determining if continuing on are several things they enjoy about their current career and the your current path or choosing another path is best for you. company they work for. When answering this question, consider those things you do at work that you enjoy and would like to continue doing every day. If the things you like most about your current job (i.e., free coffee every morning) are not terribly important in the grand scheme of things while the things that you feel should be a priority (i.e., sense of fulfillment, passion for your work) are nonexistent, then perhaps a change is in order.

Everyone has things about their job they don't like, be it location of the office in relation to your home or poor relationships with coworkers. If the things you don't like are relatively insignificant and you can't think of any issues that are pressing, then you might be happiest staying in your current position.

Is your career interfering with your life? When reassessing your career, it helps to determine if your work is interfering with your personal life or enabling you to lead a fulfilling life away from the office that includes ample time to spend with family and friends. Though a higher salary at another company might be enticing, if that salary costs you precious time with your family, then it might be in your best interest to stay put. The flip side to that coin is if your current position pays well but you must sacrifice family time to maintain your career, then perhaps a change that allows you to live a more fulfilling personal life is in order.

Is advancement possible? To many people, the opportunity to advance within a company is enough to entice them to stay. When reassessing your career, ask yourself if advancement is realistic and where you might be 12 months from now. If opportunities for advancement are there, then this might be a better bet than starting all over again elsewhere. If you see yourself in the same position and earning the same salary 12 months from now, then it might be time to begin exploring other options.

Empowering and encouraging young women to be the best they can be...


Empowering and inspiring women is what we are all about at HerSide magazine. The American Association of University Women (AAUW) also shares this goal and works to make it so women can maintain their equal rights in society. They encourage women to go on to higher education and be leaders and role models within their communities. If you are wondering how you might give back to the community and encourage young women to become the best they can be, AAUW may be a club to consider.


The American Association of University Women was founded in 1881 by Marion Talbot and Ellen H. Richards. With similar goals in mind, the women created the group in order for women to receive a fair education and equal rights. The club was meant to provide higher educational opportunities, bring women together who have earned their college degrees and work together to find opportunities for these educated women to use their training in the work force. Within ten years, AAUW merged with the Association of Collegiate Alumnae. This partnership encouraged the membership of AAUW to be used to encourage fair educational treatment for female students. In 1914, AAUW took on its first international project and established the Committee of Foreign Students to aid female student immigrants. By 1940, the association had committees dedicated to studying and promoting public education, assisting in organizing fine arts projects and tracking economic status of university women. AAUW expanded and became a part of three hundred and seventy-seven different colleges and universities and began lobbying for women to become college professors and administrators and even be appointed to the U.S. Supreme Court in 1969. Three years later, the organization became instrumental in passing Title IX; concerning sex discrimination in public schools. In the 1980s, men became eligible to join the group and


became a key networking means for women to break into mostly male dominated fields. In the 1990s, AAUW began to implement studies in sexual harassment and self esteem which progressed into the first national survey on these issues called “Hostile Hallways: The AAUW Survey in Sexual Harassment in America’s Schools.” AAUW continues to fight for social justice, education, Title IX and gender equality, and does so across the U.S. through its National, State and Local Chapters.

Wooster Chapter

The Wooster branch was established in May of 1923 and is going into its 90th year. “The women who are current members are interested in a comradery of like-minded professionals,” said Anita Greene, communication and membership chair. “We have a shared concern for human rights and humanities.” AAUW’s number one goal is to empower women to be the best they can be. Whether that’s through inspiring women to reach their career goals by helping them with higher education or encouraging them to get involved in their community and give back. Membership to the local branch is limited to women or men with a two or four year college degree. “Our membership reflects more mature adults,” said Greene. She said their club often finds it harder to attract younger women as they find they do not have the time to commit to the club, whether they are balancing a new career or new family. Younger women are always encouraged to join. “The key is to encourage and support young women and girls to be successful and get them involved in the arts,” said Greene. As a former school teacher, Greene is a huge supporter of the arts and getting involved in clubs and organizations while in school. Greene began teaching around the time Title IX came into effect. She was approached by some of her female students who didn’t understand why the boys could participate in athletic events against other schools and the girls could

not. Being a female and feeling strongly for equal rights herself, Greene took this argument to their principal and was able to get permission for them to play. Greene said she took great pride in watching her students play basketball and tennis and participate in track and even followed their careers to ďŹ nd them succeeding in sports on a college level. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At that time I was touching the lives of seventh and eighth graders,â&#x20AC;? said Greene. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You never know who you are going to touchâ&#x20AC;? or the difference you can make in anotherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life by just a simple gesture. After teaching for several years, Greene was approached by a friend who suggested she join in on the fellowship and comradery of a local club that encouraged and empowered young women. After becoming involved, Greene found the women involved came from all walks of life and professions but were all aiming for a similar goal. They wanted to see their daughters and young women alike receive higher education and live their lives to the fullest. One of the ways they encourage this is by providing scholarships to young women wishing to enter a college or university. Scholarships are awarded to Wayne County women who are nontraditional students whose education has been interrupted and are returning to college to complete an associates or undergraduate degree. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It may not be a large amount but every little bit helps with book purchases and other supplies,â&#x20AC;? said Greene. The Wooster branch is also a sponsor of the Expanding Your Horizons Conference: Math and Science workshops are held for ďŹ fth and sixth grade girls at the College of Wooster. Wooster AAUW also partners with which is dedicated to Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM.) AAUW also sponsors and holds various leadership programs which allow women and girls to break through barriers and acquire the skills

they need to succeed in their academic, professional and personal lives. AAUW Action Network is available to provide legislative alerts for legislation regarding women. AAUW aided in the ďŹ ght for womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s right to vote, so Greene feels that women should remain educated in legislative issues and exercise their independent right to vote. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our biggest success has come from book sales and raising funds for scholarships for women,â&#x20AC;? said Greene. Each year AAUW partners with Kiwanis to hold their annual book sale in September at the Wayne County Fairgrounds. All proceeds from the book sales go back to the community and into service projects for Kiwanis. In addition to the various events and activities AAUW sponsors, they also try to provide many social activities during the club meetings. Topics covered at these meetings include health, ďŹ nancial planning and â&#x20AC;&#x153;cyber security.â&#x20AC;? The various topics can help you to determine where you are in your life either physically or ďŹ nancially, where you want to be and how you can get there. Basic instruction from how to balance your check book and keep your budget on track, to how to protect yourself from internet hackers. can all be beneďŹ cial information in a personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life. Speakers are brought in to share their stories on the topic and make it easier to connect with serious situations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s real women, sharing real stories,â&#x20AC;? said Greene. Greene message to young women is â&#x20AC;&#x153;try something new; experience the arts, experience science, be a part of band, all of it helps. Live everyday with no regrets and just do the best you can. â&#x20AC;&#x153; Being a part of AAUW is a way to give back to the community. For more information on AAUW or to learn how to join visit www. or for the Wooster branch. AAUW is a nonproďŹ t, nonpartisan organization.

“The idea is to repurpose things…,” said Beth Weaver of Habitat Restore in Wooster. “…and keep things out of landfills.”Do-it-yourself projects and crafts have become very popular amongst Americans. Refinishing an old chair or even buying chairs and appliances second hand can save you a buck or two.- Beth Weaver and Rhoda Holton share some tips and ideas to make an old piece of furniture look new again. People who want to renovate and don’t have the budget often find themselves taking an old bedside table or dresser drawer and turning it into something new and creative, explained Holton. Customers who have bought old furniture and objects often share their DIY successes with Habitat ReStore. At Habitat ReStore, Holton said they often receive old dressers with the drawers being the only pieces still salvageable. Crafters have found if you use the drawers and put wheels on the bottom, what was once a dresser drawer has now become under the bed storage. Old windows make perfect picture frames, said Weaver. Windows can create a rustic feel with their old fashioned look or they can be repainted to have a more modern feel. Holton has found that wallpaper is no longer as popular in homes as it once was. She has made it her recent project to find new uses for the many recycled rolls that have made their way into the ReStore. Holton has discovered the wallpaper can be used as wrapping paper or even a book cover. Holton even creates wallpaper ornaments and décor. Old light fixtures and chandeliers have even found new uses in the homes of many crafters. Holton explained how one customer bought an old chandelier that no longer worked and filled the glass bowls that once held lights with bird seed. She then hung the light fixture from a tree and created an instant bird feeder. Holton and Weaver also said they find many people buying old fashioned and rustic chandeliers to use in weddings. The chandeliers are either painted or left as they are for a rustic feel and candles are used instead of actual light bulbs. Some other projects do-it-yourselfers have taken on include: • turning an old door into a picnic table or other functioning table • buying different sizes and styles of wood and creating a mosaic of hardwood flooring • old cabinets make perfect storage units for crafting rooms and garages • creating a backsplash from old tile pieces • deco podging or mod-podging pictures onto cork pieces for homade coasters. Re-upholstering old furniture with fabric scraps can be an inexpensive way to freshen up an old piece of furniture. “We are a society that likes to throw things away,” said Weaver. “I think we are starting

What to do when beginning an exercise regimen At the dawn of a new calendar year, many people decide it's time to turn over a new leaf and shed those extra pounds that accumulated over the previous 12 months. The resolve to lose weight is perhaps never stronger than at the beginning of a calendar year, when the holiday season has passed but those added inches on the waistline remain. Though it's noble to want to lose weight and improve health, regardless of what time of year it is, there are precautions men and women should take before beginning a new exercise regimen. * Visit your physician. It's best to get a full physical before beginning an exercise regimen. A full physical can reveal if you have any health problems that might limit what you should and shouldn't be doing at the gym. If anything turns up, your physician can develop a plan of attack for you to address the issue. If nothing turns up, then your doctor will probably give you the green light to go forward with few, if any, limitations. * Conduct a self-assessment. Once you've visited the doctor and received the go-ahead to start working out, do an honest self-assessment to see where you are in terms of fitness. Walk a mile and time yourself. Do as many push-ups and sit-ups as possible, but be careful to stretch and not push yourself. This self-assessment should not be demanding. Instead, the goal is to gauge where you are and how your body feels when doing some simple exercises. * Establish your goals. The goal of most people beginning a new exercise regimen is to lose weight. However, there are other incentives as well. For example, some people might be starting to train for a marathon or another sporting event. Whatever the reason, know why you're getting started, as such goals can help you monitor your progress as the year goes on. * Start slowly. Caution should reign supreme when beginning an exercise regimen. Diving into the deep end at the onset increases the risk of injury, which could limit activity for months to come. First get your body acclimated to exercise, then gradually challenge yourself as you see fit. * Leave time to recover. Though it might feel rejuvenating to get back to exercising, it's important for everyone, but especially those who are just starting, to allow themselves some time to recover. Allow your muscles and joints to recover between workout sessions. Frequency of sessions can increase as your body gets acclimated, but at first allow a day or two between sessions so your body can recover. * Listen to your body. Exercising after a long hiatus from routine exercise won't be easy, and your body is likely going to tell you that through certain aches and pains, if not nausea, dizziness or shortness of breath. If any of these symptoms appear, take a break. This could be your body telling you that you're asking too much and you need to take your foot off the gas pedal for a little while.


* Consider hiring a personal trainer. Many people are overwhelmed when entering a gym after a long time away. If you find yourself intimidated or simply don't know where to begin, hire a personal trainer. Many charge by-the-session, so you can learn which machines to use and how to use them after a session or two and then continue working out on your own. If joining a gym as a new member, the gym might offer a couple of complementary personal training sessions. If so, take full advantage of this offer. When beginning a new exercise regimen, don't forget to let caution reign until your body has adjusted to this healthy lifestyle.




“A place for steak” %<5$1((<2'(5‡+(56,'(&2175,%8725

ake’s Steak House makes for a very convenient night out with its three locations in Wooster, Mount Vernon, and Ashland. As it’s tag line appropriately states, Jake’s is “a place for steak,” but the menu also includes burgers, pasta, salads, seafood dishes and pizza. Yes, the steaks are great actually all the food is quite good and the ambiance is nice. Tonight, my husband and I decided on a cozy dinner for two. We started off with a common appetizer; potato skins. They came with cheddar cheese and bacon and served with sour cream. It was a good way to start off a relaxing dinner after work. My husband went with the steak for dinner and was very pleased with his choice. It was tender, juicy and cooked to perfection. I went for the Grilled Steak Flatbread as my main dish. Brushed with olive oil and topped with tenderloin, mushrooms, caramelized onions, roasted tomatoes, blue cheese crumbles and drizzled with balsamic vinegar, I too was very satisfied with my choice. This was one of those dinners that fill you up, but you don’t want to stop eating until you are done. Tonight we chose not to indulge in the burger special, but on any given Tuesday you will find the restaurant filled to the brim with customers wanting their half price burgers. The variety of burgers is quite lengthy. I have tried them all and have not been disappointed in any of my choices. This is a standing appointment for us girls at the office for our Tuesday lunches. We did enjoy our evening, and I have been at this restaurant several times and have noticed that the service is very uneven. I have had both excellent service and slow service, which is too bad because the food is very good. You will find something for everyone on the menu. This is a place where you can go for drinks, family dinners, or company banquets. What a great way to share a unique experience with others and the choices for meals and dessert are incredible! If you haven’t been, it’s well worth the visit!

Go The Full 40


You’re baby is worth the wait!


No one likes to be rushed… not even your unborn baby. The length of pregnancy is often thought of as ten months. The medical community refers to pregnancy length in weeks…40 weeks. Let’s face it… as pregnancy nears the end, physical discomfort often increases! The anticipation of meeting your new little “he” or “she” can be exciting and overwhelming. While getting the pregnancy over with sounds wonderful, research shows, “going the full 40” is preferable for your baby. Inducing labor should be reserved for medical reasons as determined by your doctor. The Association of Women’s Health Obstetric and Neonatal Nurses has started a campaign to educate women about the benefits of not rushing birth through induction but allowing labor to start without intervention for healthy women’s without medical issues. For instance, baby’s brains born at 35 weeks are 2/3rds the size they will be at term. The closer a baby is born to 40 weeks the better he/she maintains her temperature. Babies suck and swallow more effectively at term and have increased success with breast feeding. Instances of jaundice, low blood sugar, and infection is decreased by waited until your baby is ready to born. Babies born just two weeks or more weeks early can have twice the number of complications with breathing. Try to savor the journey of pregnancy… even to the end. Delight in those little kicks you feel and marvel at the miracle of the life inside. Nourish your body with a healthy diet. Keep your scheduled doctors appointments. Take full advantage of the time you have left as “you and me” before you are a threesome…or more. Enjoy pampering a bit longer by letting others help with heavy lifting. Remember babies are easier to care for in the womb. Try to relax… your baby is worth the wait! The Association of Women’s Health Obstetric and Neonatal Nurses has created a website ( where you can read more reasons “To Go the Full 40!” Wooster Community Hospital Doctors and Nurses are excited to assist you through one of the most exciting times of your life.

Sleep Deprivation...


...May Equal Insulin Resistance, Weight Gain, and Disease Do you struggle to control your blood pressure, diabetes, or weight? Like most Americans, you probably do not sleep the 7-9 hours each night that the National Sleep Foundation recommends. It is also safe to assume that you have, or know someone who has, one or more of the leading causes of death in the US according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) including heart disease, cancer, chronic respiratory disease (such as COPD), or diabetes; all of which are affected negatively by an undiagnosed or untreated sleep disorder. According to the CDC, an estimated 50-70 million US adults have a sleep or wakefulness disorder. According to the Annals of Internal Medicine in 2012, several recent studies suggest that inadequate sleep reduces the bodyÅfs ability to respond to insulin, affects hormones that regulate appetite and metabolism leading to weight gain, and increases the patientÅfs risk of heart attack, stroke, and diabetes. For those of us with an untreated sleep disorder, this could mean that much of our effort to control our blood sugar, blood pressure, and weight during the day is undone each and every night keeping us from reaching our goals. Not to mention all of that wasted time, money, and effort on medications and diets!

Inadequate and poor quality sleep no longer means just being tired and irritable the next day. It means you could be keeping yourself from successfully controlling your high blood pressure, diabetes, and weight. If you or someone you know is having difficulty sleeping, experiences daytime sleepiness, loud snoring, and has high blood pressure, diabetes, or is overweight, consider taking a few steps to promote healthy sleep and open a discussion with your healthcare provider. For more information regarding sleep disorders, symptoms, screening, and treatment recommendations, visit and follow the links for the Sleep Disorders Center or call 330-263-8400 to speak with a registered sleep technologist.

Three different women have chosen a career path not commonly chosen among the female gender. They have all “caught the virus” as JoAnn Stype playfully referred to their shared love of flying. The three have crossed paths and found themselves working together out of the Wayne County Airport. While today the gender gap is not quite as wide, the idea of women in aviation is still unique. “All of our ratings may be the same [in terms of flight qualifications] but our experiences are very different,” said Stype.

*J!II=M@<FDIBOCMJPBCOC@B@I?@M=<MMD@M JoAnn Stype, 78, of Wooster, began flying in an era when women were not fronted with the same opportunities men were. Women were looked upon to keep up with the housework and tend to the family, but JoAnn was determined to break through the gender barrier. “Flying wasn’t a career path I chose for myself,” said Stype. Her husband was a pilot at the time and felt that it was appropriate for her to learn to fly as well . “I was living in an age where you [women] kind of followed your husbands.” A little resistant at first, Stype went for her first flight lesson in November of 1960. She found that she got air sick the first couple of times she went up and was not sure how much she liked the idea of flying. Almost a year later, Stype took on her first solo flight and discovered the thrill behind flying. “Flying is like horseback riding. When you’re in control you have fun.” The road to becoming a female pilot in her decade was not always an easy one. Stype faced the challenge of members of the opposite gender trying to tell her that women were not cut out to be pilots. This only fueled Stype to work harder to prove them wrong and in 1963 she received her private pilots license and continued on to get her commercial license in 1965. “Flying is a little like a virus. You’re either immune to it or you catch it,” said Stype. And Stype had definitely caught the virus in a good way. She found herself participating in cross-country air races in the late 1960s. Powder Puff races took place from coastto-coast while international races began in a foreign country. JoAnn began to witness the world from the small cockpit of her plane. In 1967, Stype became a flight instructor and encouraged bright-eyed young pilots to take to the skies. Teaching proved to have its joys and discomforts for Stype. “If they were motivated they FRIOM L-R: BARB TARUTANI, ELLEN PRETORIUS AND JOANN STYPE

Flying is a little like a virus. You're either immune to it or you catch it

enjoyed it,” said Stype. Mostly Stype was looking to share her love for the skies.

"<M= Barb Tarutani, 45, of Wooster, was introduced to the world of flying a little differently. “It wasn’t a life-long dream for me,” said Tarutani. After graduating from the Air Force academy, she decided she was interested in learning the art of flying and potentially becoming a pilot. While attending flight school, Tarutani had the opportunity to fly twin engine jets and supersonic jets. Tarutani flew alongside the best of the best as she participated in flight formations and aerobatics and quickly caught the “virus.” “It’s a whole different world up there,” said Tarutani. “You just get away from it all.” Tarutani loved the speed of flying her fighter jets, whether she was flying 80 or 800 mph, the thrill and rush was unmatchable. While it was more acceptable for women to be involved in aviation, women were still not allowed to fly fighter jets into combat. After completing her flight training, Barb went on to become a flight instructor . “You have to stay focused up there,” said Tarutani. “Flying demands your full attention.” Tarutani said she has been in some scary situations before. When you’re flying in formations at 300 to 400 mph with only three to four feet between you and the next plane in formation, you have to be aware of everyone with in your formation, explained Tarutani. Aerobatics involve accelerations around 600 to 800 mph and involve following the leader into flips and twists through the sky. Tarutani met her husband in the military and after five years of being in the service she became pregnant. With her husband being deployed for dessert storm and herself unable to fly, she chose to take time off to support her family. After her husbands return from the military, the Tarutani’s moved to Wayne County, where a friend suggested she get back into flying. “I didn’t realize what it took to get back into flying and I really didn’t realize how much I missed it,” said Tarutani. Today she is a flight instructor at the Wayne County airport in Smithville, teaching private and instrumental classes from her Cessna 150.



Ellen Pretorius, 53, of Smithville, came into the world of aviation purely by choice. “I met a girl who was a pilot and decided I wanted to learn how to fly so I asked my daddy for flying lessons,” said Pretorius. By her eighteenth birthday Pretorius was in the cockpit learning to fly. Pretorius started out learning at a flight school in New Philadelphia and continued her education at The Ohio State University, graduating with a degree in flight instrumentation and flight instruction. She began her career teaching at the Akron-Canton Airport and eventually found herself in the “right” (co-pilots) seat of a Cessna Conquest 2. From there, it wasn’t long before she was promoted to captain. Pretorius has been flying a Citation Bravo with MidAviation out of the Wayne County Airport for five years now.

7JH@IJA&GDBCO “Six percent of pilots today are women which hasn’t changed since the 1920s,” said Pretorius. One thing that has changed is the perception of women as pilots. While it is still a very unique career for women, questions are not raised about a females ability as they once were. “I’m grateful to be a women in this time,” said Pretorius. “When you love what you do people can tell and you gain their respect as their pilot,” said Pretorius. She finds that people are often excited to see women in the pilots seat. “If you can do your job well, respectfully, with professionalism, it doesn’t matter if your male or female,” said Tarutani. “Society has become empowering towards women.” Each of the women have found their niche in teaching flight lessons out of the Wayne County airport and have found great joy and accomplishment in teaching students to fly. “It builds your ego once you train your student to fly like you,” said Pretorius. All three women agree that flying is like nothing else. Being grounded for a week is not an option for these ladies as they are always looking for excuses to escape to the freedom of the sky. As they reflect on their careers in aviation they can’t help but smile as they talk about their experiences. It’s not hard to see that these three women have found a career they are truly passionate about.
