Captain Lisa Hogan

Captain Lisa Hogan was born in Kitchener Ontario, lived most of her life in Oakville Ontario, and moved to Burlington Ontario in 1998. She studied at Sheridan College obtaining 3 diplomas in the field of Health and Humanities- General Arts and Science, Developmental Disabilities Worker and Social Service Worker. She has always had a passion for working with adults and/or children that have disabilities or challenges.

In 2012, Captain Hogan became involved as a member of the Parent Support Committee at 2379 RHLI RCACC- Burlington Army Cadets. Through her exposure to the cadet program, she was told about the opportunity to become a Cadet Instructor Cadre (CIC) Officer and began that process shortly thereafter. Beginning her Cadet Instructor career as a Civilian Volunteer, led to a Civilian Instructor role, which in 2015 became enrolment into the CIC as an Officer Cadet. Her enthusiasm for this amazing youth development program has never waned and she has been promoted through the ranks to her current rank of Captain. In September 2020, Capt Hogan assumed official command of 2379 from former Commanding Officer, Capt Jodi Mitchell, but due to Covid-19 public health measures, an official Change of Command did not occur until early 2021.

In her civilian life, Capt Hogan is a Special Needs Educational Assistant with the Peel District School Board in Mississauga where she uses her passion for children and education to positively impact children with special needs.

"It is my hope that all will still view me with having a safe, and approachable, personality and that I can continue to lead our Corps with continued value in our community."
