Military Support is There for Captain Mink
Captain Georgette Mink's experience proves that being a single mother in the military is more than possible – for her, it has been ideal. Captain Mink is a Physiotherapist for the Forces and has had the opportunity to see the world and raise her family in a secure home. “I am a single parent of four year old twins”, says Georgette, “It can be extremely difficult to manage work and twins at such a young age but the military has been extremely helpful in providing me with tools and resources to manage”.
Captain Mink strongly believes that the Forces offers travel opportunities and benefits that cannot be beat. “What other job pays you to work out three times a week to maintain your fitness and provide travel opportunities while on the International Military Sports Council (CISM) running team? I can consider myself a fully-funded, paid, professional athlete. No other job would provide this support”.
One of her bucket-list items was to travel and see the world -- the military was a perfect opportunity to do both, “Since joining, I have been to Bosnia, Italy, Croatia, Lebanon, India, Brazil, Suriname and throughout the U.S”.
Captain Georgette Mink fully accepted the challenge of being a Forces member with no regrets. She feels that it has been the “most rewarding, enjoyable and satisfying career choice” of her life.
