Vernice "FlyGirl" Armour to Speak at Girl Scouts 100th Anniversary Convention in Houston Texas

Vernice “FlyGirl” Armour, a Girl Scout alumna, an African-American female combat pilot, and a former Marine, is set to speak at our 100th anniversary convention on Friday, November 11, at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston, Texas.

As part of her role, Armour will host an engaging talk that Friday morning, focusing on the military experience that led her to become “chief breakthrough officer” of her own company. As well, she’ll offer inspirational words of wisdom during a Leadership Moment, share with audience members her experience as a Girl Scout Brownie, and lead the audience in reciting the Girl Scout Promise. Last but not least, Armour will be on hand to sign copies of her popular new book, Zero to Breakthrough: The 7-Step, Battle-Tested Method for Accomplishing Goals that Matter.

Known to many as simply “FlyGirl", Armour already boasts an illustrious career, beginning with her humble days as a beat cop to her two tours in Iraq as a combat pilot, where she flew over deserts to provide support to U.S. men and women on the ground. After leaving the military, she started her own consultancy, VAI Consulting and Training, LLC. Armour has been featured on CNN and The Oprah Winfrey Show, and travels extensively as a motivational speaker, encouraging individuals to take charge of their lives.
