    Lt Col Patricia Murray

    Retired Lieutenant Colonel and Instructor Pilot for the California Air National Guard and Former Miss California

    Can a woman that walked as Miss California in 4” heels command an aircraft in combat? You bet!!

    LTCol. Patricia Murray has been speaking to audiences of all ages for over 26 years about how the most ordinary ideas can be extraordinary successes.

    She has often been told how “lucky” she has been in her life to have achieved so much, but once you listen to her speak, you will learn that it is simply turning life’s normal rejections and failures to her advantage and being ready to seize opportunities when they appear. She is an expert on leadership in high stress and dynamic situations, breaking the glass ceiling and developing positive harmonious relationships between men and women in the workplace and finding a
    way to win the race of life when the world is convinced you are the underdog.

    Patricia is an engineer by trade but used her scholarship earned as Miss California 1992 to pursue a career in commercial aviation. She was recruited by the California Air National Guard and was awarded the top honor of the Commanders Trophy at military pilot training graduation. She was inducted into the prestigious Order of Daedalians, a WWI flying organization where she is a Director. She is also a Director on the Disabled Veterans Charities board where they award hundreds of thousands to disabled veterans in need annually.

    She retired after a 21 year military career as a LtCol and Instructor Pilot for the California Air National Guard in the 115th Airlift Squadron. She flew six tours of duty in the Middle East and has been awarded 5 flying Air Medals. She was named the 2010 California Air National Guard Field Grade Officer of the Year. She has earned her Masters of Science in Military Science and Operational Art. Patricia was the CEO of the Miss California Organization a preliminary to Miss America from 2015-2020. She has flown 23 years as a pilot for American Airlines and resides with her three daughters in Manhattan Beach, California.
