Three states, three sectors – this month’s edition of Women Moving Australia covers a range of experience and credentials as we look at women who are moving Australia by air, land and sea.

As the granddaughter of RAAF pilot, Captain Lisa Norman has been flying for 30 years – 26 of them for Qantas. But her love of the transport and logistics industry runs even deeper. Since learning to drive a 1936 International truck at age 12, she’s had a passion for all modes of transportation ever since – including boating, flying, cars, motorbikes, rockets and space. Learn more about Lisa here.

Another woman who started her career in the industry at an early is Angela Lewis. Second in command of the sail training vessel, Leeuwin 2, with Fremantle-based Leeuwin Ocean Adventures, Angela has recently completed a Diploma of Maritime Operations (Watchkeeper Deck) and was named as finalist in the 2015 WA Training Awards – Vocational Student of the Year category.
