MALT alumna Jennifer Bennett has been named one of the top 100 most powerful women in Canada by the Financial Post.

Jennifer Bennett: Rear-Admiral, Naval Reserve
Jennifer Bennett first enrolled in the Naval Reserve in 1975 on the HMCS Star as a naval communicator. A 1981 graduate from McMaster University (bachelor's degree in Physical Education), she also earned a degree in education from Queen's University in 1982 and a master of arts in Leadership and Training from Royal Roads University in 2005. Since joining the navy Bennett has consistently served in the Primary Reserve, including stints on the HMCS Star, HMCS Cataraqui and HMCS Malahat. She's also a graduate of the Canadian Forces Staff School (1985), Canadian Forces Staff College (1989) and the NATO Defence Staff College (1999). Bennett became a rear-admiral in April and was named chief of Reserves and Cadets in May. Serving in the navy runs in the Bennett family: her father served for 30 years and both her brother and sister currently serve.
