Welcome to the Military Wife Life Podcast


Military Wife Life- The Podcast Episode 16

This week I talk to my Husband Scott who has, just days ago, returned from a 6 month deployment. We talk about deployment from the Military member’s perspective. What happens when that ship pulls away from the wharf and sets off on its journey. How it feels for the Military member to be away from their family for long stretches and all those little questions you might have but never get the chance to ask.



Military Wife Life- The Podcast Episode 15

This week I talk to Susan who has just hit the one year mark of being a Navy spouse. Susan talks us through the huge changes she and her Husband have gone through during the past 12 months and what she expected Military life to be like versus the reality. From months and months of separation, giving birth to their second child without her Husband by her side, a few tears and a couple of hospital trips she has risen to the challenge and tackled everything that has been thrown at her like a true Military spouse does.



Military Wife Life- The Podcast Episode 14

This week’s podcast episode is a compilation of some of the words of wisdom offered by the beautiful military spouses I have already had on the podcast. What they do to make life easier. How they juggle all they have to juggle while living this military life. What self care means to them and how they look after themselves so they can continue to look after everyone else.

This week I talk to Taryn, an Air Force spouse, who embarked on what was supposed to be a one year MWDU stint that eventually turned into three years with a deployment thrown into the mix. We talk about how she cope’s by herself with two young kids, a new business that is helping other defence partners on their re-employment journey, PEEP funding and how she makes sure she is looking after herself.

Military Wife Life- The Podcast Episode 11

In this Episode I’m on the podcast talking about a medical emergency involving my 4 and a half year old and how it could have been the total unraveling of me. I talk about how laying some strong foundations over the last year and a half and consistently saying YES to me allowed me to pull myself out of a spiral of self pity and get back on track straight away.
