She was a member of 18th Space Control Squadron (SPCS) and fulfilled the roles of orbital analyst and line instructor. The 18th SPCS is tasked with providing 24/7 support to the Space Surveillance Network (SSN), maintaining the catalog of resident space objects and managing the United States Space Command’s space situational awareness (SSA) sharing program to both domestic, foreign, and commercial entities.

A graduate of the Royal Military College of Canada in Physics & Space Science (Honours), Capt Dumont was commissioned into the Royal Canadian Air Force in 2016.

Shortly after, she was posted to the Canadian Space Operations Centre (CANSpOC) in Ottawa to work in various positions in the developing unit. In 2018, she was posted to the Canadian NORAD Space Detachment (CNSD) in VSFB, California, USA. While working full-time, Capt Dumont completed a Master’s degree in Space Operations Engineering from the University of Colorado. She now teaches courses such as PHF255 (Space Operations), PHF355 (Space Systems), PHF350 (Orbital Mechanics) and PHF448 (Space Mission Design). She is also actively involved in the RMC community filling the roles of Supervisor of the RMC First Response Team, Supervisor of the RMC Sport Parachuting Club and Facilitator for the Athena Network. In her free time, she enjoys trail running with her dog and competing in Obstacle Course Races (OCR).
