Caroline Johnson

Lieutenant Commander Caroline Johnson graduated from the US Naval Academy in 2009 and became an F/A-18 Super Hornet, Weapons Systems Officer, meaning she communicated, targeted and coordinated all the bomb and missile employments in her aircraft. She was one of two female aviators in her 230-person unit, and one of the only 1.7% women flying fighter jets in the Navy. She deployed in 2014 aboard the USS George HW Bush and saw combat action in Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria and was the first woman to employ weapons on ISIS in Iraq from her F/A-18. Wrapping up her active duty career, Caroline earned her master’s degree and returned to the Naval Academy to teach leadership and run aviation recruitment. Caroline’s memoir, JET GIRL, published last November and was featured on the Today Show, Fox & Friends, MSNBC and currently she is a professional speaker renowned for her remarkable stories, business anecdotes, and relatable personality. She is an MBA Candidate at University of Chicago Booth School of Business and a Leadership Lecturer at University of Chicago Harris School of Public Policy.
