After working toward her B.S. in Aeronautical Science at Prescott, Lisa left the aviation and aerospace industry in 1993 for an opportunity in sales. This opportunity allowed her to gain leadership skills, effective communications, and the importance of providing exceptional customer service.
Returning to Embry-Riddle in 1997, Lisa completed her B.S. in Aeronautical Science and M.S. in Aeronautics. Lisa led the teams of Career Services at the university for more than 15 years and touched the lives of thousands of students and alumni, guiding their career dreams to reality.
Lisa was appointed in 2013 to join the university efforts in Corporate Relations, where she will continue to demonstrate her strong work ethic and dedication to Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University.
I didn’t achieve my goal in the time I thought I had to, I wasn’t flying as a professional pilot at the age of 22. But so what if I decided to change my career plans? It didn’t mean that I was a failure or that I lost my passion. It just meant that I discovered new ones.
After completing her B.S. in Safety Science at ERAU, Joanne Soliman went on to pursue an M.S. in Aeronautics. During her studies, she completed two FAA Aircraft Maintenance Division internships through The Washington Center. She then went on to work for PAI Consulting, a firm that contracts with the FAA.Joanne is now an Operations Research Analyst in the FAA’s Office of Accident Investigation and Prevention, a dream job for many interested in safety science. She attributes her success to taking advantage of ERAU internships, not being afraid to fail, being organized, and networking.
