Nancy served in the Regular Force of the Canadian Armed Forces as an Air Traffic Controller from 1987- 1992, and as a Supply Technician from 1997-2005.  She was also a formidable friend and driving force behind Fire Team K9’s and K-9 Headquarters.  Nancy Berube served as the Vice President of Fire Team K9s, Director of Animal Welfare and Certified Trainer.  Her dream was the creation of K-9 Headquarters, and her passion for helping service members and first responders stems from her former service with the Canadian Armed Forces and during her training course at Northern College (Kirkland Lake) to become a Police officer with the OPP.  She graduated top of her class with honours.

Her Service Dog, Professor Plum will continue to stay in the Fire Team Family and will be a frequent visitor at K-9 Headquarters.
