Sandra Perron


Major Sandra Perron was Canada’s first female infantry officer. After graduating at the top of her class, she joined the Van Doos, and served for 13 years. She was deployed on peacekeeping missions to the former Yugoslavia, and earned an exceptional service commendation. She is a senior partner with A New Dynamic Enterprise Inc. and is the founder and president of the Imagine… Project, a charitable organization which distributes school supplies to children in need. Out Standing in a Field is Perron’s remarkable memoir on her military service, describing her fight against institutional sexism and her love of service.
