Bronwyn Marchant - Public Affairs Office, Air Combat Group
Bronwyn gives a motivating account of being new to the Australian Air Force and being an Air Combat Group Public Affairs Officer.
Bronwyn grew up in the small town of Bungendore, NSW. then a largely agricultural community. She attended school/college in Canberra, ACT, graduating in 2011.
After graduating college, she attended the University of Canberra for two years studying Bachelor of Commerce majoring in Finance. At the time she was also employed as a finance officer for a not-for profit organisation. She then made the decision she did not want to pursue a career in finance. Subsequently, she joined the Royal Australian Air Force in 2018 as a Personnel Capability Officer (PCO).
Bronwyn completed her initial officer training at RAAF Base East Sale in 2018 and was posted to Central Flying School, RAAF Base East Sale. She then completed her initial employment training for PCO in Feb 2019 at RAAF School of Administration and Logistics Training at RAAF Base Wagga.
Bronwyn says one of my highlights during my posting at Central Flying School as the PCO, was when I was fortunate enough to attend the Edinburgh Air Show, Adelaide in November 2019 with the RAAF Roulette Aerobatic team.
In January 2021, Bronwyn was posted to 464 Squadron as the Air Combat Group Public Affairs Officer, based at RAAF Base Williamtown.
