    Despite where we come from, Pamela Bolado believes that, in some capacity, we are all living similar lives. Her worldview - from being raised in Canada, to living in Kuwait, to moving to the United States in 2016 - and many life experiences have now led her to advocating for women from all backgrounds through her non-profit, Women Who Do Wonders. Pamela shares how she met her husband, her observation of the Canadian military spouse community vs. the American military spouse community, how her experience at Joint Base Lewis–McChord Air Force Base (JBLM) positively shaped her perception of being a military spouse, her current initiatives, the stress of military transition, and much more.

Thoughtful and helpful

Looking forward to this podcast being around for a long time!
