Our Volunteers

Tom & Beth Sullivan

Tom & BethI’ve been involved with NWALL since 1991 when Bob Larson, our founder, became partners with me and two others in our newly constructed hangar. I started participating in med flights in 1991, and performed my TRUE first in 1996, a heart transplant flight in the middle of the night in my M20F Mooney from Iron Mountain to Milwaukee.

I’ve held virtually every position within the organization, but have been flight coordinator for the majority of my time with NWALL, getting relief/breaks when others would cover it for significant time periods.

I find the rewards of helping patient’s in need at critical medical challenges in their lives helps keep MY LIFE in perspective, realizing how many can’t look forward in life with confidence while I remain relatively healthy.

Beth has been a lifetime supporter, giving up time with me while I perform our mission, since my early involvement. Recently, about 4 years ago, she took over the Treasurer’s position and has been intimately involved with NWALL since.

We both hope to continue serving for the foreseeable future, supporting this great organization

Jesse BellJesse Bell

Flying for Northwoods AirLifeline has been an incredibly rewarding experience. I feel like the luckiest guy in the world helping people who desperately need a lift while sharing my love of flying airplanes.

I started flying with Northwoods in 2019 and currently serve as Vice President and Secretary. I’m a commercial pilot and flight instructor, but my day job is working as a financial planner.

Lee Rowe

Lee RoweI have been a member of the Gwinn Lions Club for many years, and a member of the NWALL board. I live in Gwinn with my husband Bill. We support NWALL because we have a friend who was transported by them to Madison for a double transplant over 20 years ago. She is still doing well today. We are impressed with the dedication of the pilots and their willingness to give off their time, sometimes their planes, to serve those in need. They are a great group, and we are proud to be a part of that.
