Julie Mailhot, BA 89, is a true leader of the pack. The chief operating officer of Air Georgian, a member of Air Canada Express, started her career as a customer service agent for Air Canada in 1987. She quickly rose through the ranks to become the airline’s first female dispatcher and was eventually promoted to chief of operations overseeing that division.
For the past 21 years, she’s also worked alongside her colleagues at the Toronto chapter of Dreams Take Flight, a non-profit that flies disadvantaged and sick kids to one of the Disney resorts in the United States for the day. Mailhot is currently president of the organization.
