Captain Elyse O’Brien has established an impressive military career as an Air Battle Manager. As a Senior Director, she is in charge of the weapons section that provides air defence in the Alaskan NORAD region.
This outstanding graduate is flying high, and we can't wait to see where she lands.
Elyse attended Queen's University and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology. During her summer months at school, she trained with the Canadian Armed Forces.
This training was the beginning of an impressive military career as an Air Battle Manager. Elyse is posted in Anchorage, Alaska where she oversees aviation missions for North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD). This posting to an American unit gives her the unique honour of fostering important American-Canadian military relations.
Captain Elyse O’Brien has received many honours and accolades for her work with the 176th Air Defence Squadron. A recent upgrade to Senior Director means that she is now in charge of the weapons section providing 24/7 air defence in the Alaskan NORAD region.
We can rest a little easier knowing that Elyse is serving our nation with honour and dedication in such a critical military operation.
