Keynote: Vernice Armour, America's First African-American Female Combat Pilot

Posted By NAEP, Monday, December 12, 2016

Opening General Session Keynote:

Known in her profession simply as FlyGirl, Vernice Armour went from being a beat cop on the streets of Nashville to combat pilot in the U.S. Marine Corps—with the added distinction of being America’s first African-American combat pilot.  Within months of earning her wings, she was flying over the deserts of Iraq, supporting our ground troops. Upon returning home, she realized that many other people would want to create major breakthroughs in their own lives; they just didn’t know how. Her passion has become helping organizations and individuals create those results.

From her experiences, she created a 7-step process called the Zero to Breakthrough™ Success Plan. She now travels extensively sharing this message through her keynotes, coaching and seminars. From the moment she leaps into the audience, she shows attendees how to create a personal flight plan utilizing her own candid strategies to win on the battlefield of business and life. Vernice’s achievements include being the first African-American woman on the Nashville Police Department's Motorcycle Squad, Camp Pendleton's 2001 Female Athlete of the Year, two-time titleholder in Camp Pendleton's annual Strongest Warrior Competition, and a running back for the San Diego Sunfire women's professional football team. Her signature book, Zero to Breakthrough™, was published in 2011.
