National Delegate: Emma Steil


Emma joined DFA in February 2017 as the National Delegate for ACT and Southern NSW. A Defence spouse since 2002, working mum to two school aged children and a fur baby, she knows the challenges and rewards the Defence lifestyle brings.

She believes it is a unique experience for each family and everyone faces challenges in their own way but should be supported along the way if needed.  A passionate advocate for the families in her region, Emma would love to hear from you if you have an issue or concern you would like to raise.

She is also a qualified yoga teacher and credits regular yoga with helping keep her sanity during her husband’s deployments and a 2 year MWD(U) posting.
