Advocating for Defence families

Projects and Policy Officer

Projects and Policy Officer

Chantel Williams

I started with Defence Families Australia in November 2021 as the National Projects and Policy Officer.

I have been a Defence spouse since 2016. Having experienced relocations, deployments and MWDU, I understand the challenges of military life as a wife and mum.

Over the last 20 years, I have had extensive experience in local and state governments, working in both finance and human resources.

Before commencing with DFA, I was a human resource consultant with a state government. In that role, I provided advice on organisational change, recruitment, employment legislation and policy.

I feel privileged to be a part of this wonderful organisation to support and drive change that will positively impact the ADF community.
