How anomalous is this income increase?

In 2001, a white, age 35 woman worked as a corporate admin assistant at a salary of $25K in a large US Midwestern city. The same woman kept learning and developed her skills. Over the next 15 years she changed jobs just 3 times, trying to make strategic decisions and maximize her earning power. She just got her W-2 from her current employer- the IT department of a large manufacturing company in the same town. She grossed over $100K in 2016. Is this an exceptional growth rate? Or is this trajectory more common than not for women in this cohort?
