Suzie Boot - As might be gathered from her name, she is married to Geoffrey Boot and has been deeply involved in General Aviation since they met and married many years ago. 

She flies extensively with Geoffrey and acts as his navigator when air racing.  She strongly believes that flying should be safe but, just as importantly, fun and that bringing together like-minded people is what AOPA should be about.
