About This Webinar

Join us as we chat with the dynamic Melanie Curtis, Co-Founder and Co-Captain of Highlight Pro Skydiving Team, an elite all-female demonstration jump team. This energetic group of women bring excitement to their events when they fly streamers, large flags, and smoke streams on their jumps. Melanie is the USA's North East, Regional Captain for Projet 19, a world-wide initiative of sky diving women attempting to set a world skydiving record by creating a group vertical jump with 100 women. This attempt is in celebration of the 100th anniversary of women winning the right to vote in the USA. We are excited to chat with Melanie about what she enjoys about being a leader of these amazing teams of women, and to find out what she dreams of doing next.
