How to Successfully Navigate the Mil Spouse Life – Alison Woehrman
There is so much more to someone’s identity than what a podcast title suggests. Meet Alison Woehrman, who is not only a 20-year mil spouse, but also a mother, strength and conditioning coach, and podcast host.
After college, Alison spent almost 10 years as a dolphin and sea lion animal trainer with the Navy Marine Mammal Program. After several PCSs, and due to the fast-pace of her husband’s Navy career, Alison and her husband made the decision that she would stay at home with their two children.
Alison and I talk about the good, the bad, and the ugly of the military spouse life. It can be fun and exciting while also being lonely and isolating. While the military member has their identity connected to their military branch, a mil spouse is often forced to recreate themselves and their lives with every move.
With 8 cross-country moves in 20 years, Alison has become a pro at this! From building a career and community within the health and fitness space to launching her own podcast, Alison has become an expert out of necessity. We talk about all of this and more in this episode!
Alison is married with two children and currently lives in Denver, CO with her husband, a 20-year Navy veteran. Alison just launched her own podcast, The Unspoken Life of the Military Wife.
