“In 1990, I was asked by my husband, Joe Carfagna, Sr., the founder of Wings Aviation International, a predecessor company to Leading Edge, to please come into the office and help out for a while because they had just lost a valued employee. I said “yes” and “a while” has somehow become 28 years.”
During her years with Leading Edge, Kay’s responsibilities included administration and finance. This entailed keeping the company’s books and records, maintaining credit lines for the purchase of aircraft, managing aircraft expenses, product advertising, and serving as an officer of the company. Kay attended Fairleigh Dickinson University and Katherine Gibbs Business School.
In Kay’s spare time, she enjoys creating finely made doll clothes and accessories for the American Girl doll. Many items are fully lined with operating zippers and buttons, and include boots or shoes. She donates any funds received from selling these outfits to charity and local causes.
