Veteran Athlete Credits Sports with Preparing Her for a Career in the Male-Dominated Field [03/29/2018]


US Air National Guard, 1981-2007
Operations Iraqi Freedom, Joint Forge, and Coronet Oak

Judi Roberts signed up for the US Air National Guard as a crew chief and aircraft technician, serving for 26 years.  Building on the physical requirements of her military job, she added bicycling and volleyball to create a sense of regularity outside the fast-paced flight schedules.  Injuries to her shoulder and knee did not slow her activity – she holds a gold medal in discus from the Golden Age games.

Through sports I have pushed myself to, and beyond, the circles edge, creating confidence, strengthening relationships, and learning life lessons.
