Kathleen Jolivette, Vice President/General Manager, Boeing Vertical Lift
Kathleen Jolivette grew up a member of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe on the Rosebud Reservation at the South Dakota-Nebraska border. She recalled, “I joined the Army right out of high school. My brothers were in the Navy. My father was in the Army. That’s how I got into the Army and learned about aviation. I supported a missile maintenance unit and didn’t have any exposure to aviation, even at that time. I worked in logistics — focusing on supplies and logistics to keep the unit going.”
