Know yourself, know your passion, chart your path and make your difference in life, says Dr. Jennifer Caudle, the keynote speaker for The Women’s Connection’s commemorative events next week in Davenport and Muscatine, Iowa.

Young Women of Achievement is a noon luncheon event at the Radisson Quad-City Plaza in downtown  Davenport, while Women in Leadership is a recognition dinner at the Geneva Country Club in Muscatine. Both will be held Tuesday, June 14, but the registration deadline is Thursday, June 9.

Young Women of Achievement recognizes seven young Quad-City women who have made significant contributions to their community.

Caudle, 33, is pleased to help recognize the accomplishments of all the women being honored by The Women’s Connection. “They are amazing,” she said.

Caudle grew up in Davenport, the daughter of Henry and Esther Caudle. A graduate of Princeton University, she won the Miss Iowa crown in 1999, and she also won the Bert Parks Talent Award for her cello performance at the Miss America pageant.

She works in aerospace medicine at the U.S. Air Force base in Little Rock, Ark., where her patients are mainly pilots. “It’s really neat and fascinating work,” she said.

Caudle speaks nationally about adolescent issues, especially bullying.

“I’m probably as busy with my work about bullying as at any time in my career,” she said.

The doctor, who is board-certified in family medicine, also will talk about making a difference in the world and how to chart a personal, successful path in life.

“That has to do with using our own self-confidence, finding resources and opportunities, and really being diligent,” she said.
