91.Becoming a Defence family a little later in life

In this week's podcast episode, I talk to Navy spouse Cheree about what it’s like when your husband joins defence a little later in life.


Cheree and I also talk about;

  • The first posting experience and her military member deploying within a few months.
  • Building a support network and the lifelong friends she made on the first posting.
  • The challenges she has faced while searching and securing employment.
  • An international posting to Hawaii and the amazing experiences they had.
  • The difference in spouse and family support overseas and in Australia.
  • The pre-planning that goes into posting and resettling when you have kids with special needs.
  • Taking defence life as it comes and making the best of it.
  • Reaching out for support even if it means stepping out of your comfort zone.
  • Why Cheree gets involved in events and catchups in an effort to help others.
  • Their next posting and preparing for sea time and separation after back to back shore postings.
