Nobody likes lawyers; at least that’s what the jokes make us think. However, one can learn a lot about life and leadership from how a lawyer lives their life.

As the senior legal advisor to the Air Force Academy’s Superintendent, senior leaders, & law enforcement agents, Dawn Zoldi supervises 26 attorneys & paralegals in providing advice across a broad spectrum of legal areas affecting the institution, akin to a General Counsel, City Attorney, & District Attorney. She attained her Juris Doctorate degree from the Villanova University School of Law, was admitted to the Bar of the Supreme Court of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania & commissioned in the United States Air Force. In her more than 23 years as a member of the USAF Judge Advocate General’s Corps, Col. Zoldi has led diverse groups & organizations, & transformed them. An internationally recognized military-legal expert, Zoldi frequently presents, publishes & consults on a variety of topics. Her professional focus has been, & remains, on leadership & lawyering.
