I’m a single mum with three daughters, have competed in five bodybuilding shows and run my own personal training business – all while having a successful career in the Army Reserve.

Jen: Army Reserve Warehouse Coordinator

How it started

I was looking for a personal challenge, something that would give me an opportunity to learn new skills and help others achieve. And the Army Reserve gave me plenty without having to sacrifice time with my family or my business.

What I do

I work in the logistics side of the Army and have learnt new skills such as managing warehouse systems, organising large quantities of supplies and driving a forklift.

How it's made an impact

I’ve helped support communities through things like Covid-19 and bushfire assists, and I hope to achieve a promotion and continue with that work.


The hardest part, but also the most rewarding, was the training in Kapooka when you get to march out knowing you’ve achieved something that many people don’t have the opportunity to try.

I love the mateship, the diverse opportunities and how the Army facilitates a balance between my roles as Reservist, mum and successful business owner. If you want to feel part of a team all striving for a common goal, I say just do it!
