“Change is not just an action. It’s a belief. A person has to believe there’s room for change, then their actions will reflect what they truly believe.” – Capt Holly King
A native of Amherst, NS, Captain Holly King joined the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) as a Reserve Force Logistician in 2008. On posting to 5th Canadian Division Support Base Gagetown in 2013, Capt King and her family settled in Oromocto where they remain to this day.
Shortly after arriving at Base Gagetown, Capt King began her work with Personnel Support Services, holding a number of positions before finally settling into the Base’s Deputy G1 position. Throughout her tenure, some of her many duties have included Command of the Base Auxiliary Security Force, the Base Senior Unit Elections Officer (2017 and 2021), and military co-chair of the Defence Women’s Advisory Organization for Base Gagetown.
Today, Capt King balances her role as the 5th Canadian Division Support Group Deputy G1, overseeing Formation reports and returns, policy interpretation, and promulgating guidance and information on base-level programming while also working as the Base’s Employment Equity (EE) Coordinator, leading the coordination of EE events while working to advance diversity and inclusivity awareness at Base Gagetown.
