Today our story is about women in leadership, about stepping up to great challenges, about success and about military life. It is also about family and about following your dreams even when they seem big. Today I am bringing you a conversation with Graciela Tiscareño-Sato about her wonderful journey.
Ticareño is the daughter of working immigrants in Colorado, first of five siblings, who found a sea of possibilities in the military. She got a high-level education from a worldwide leading university (UC Berkeley) with a scholarship from US Air Force before committing to a life in service. But later as an officer, she learned about piloting, navigating and all the technical matters about this complicated sophisticated machines that she rode for many years until her retirement.
