Thirty Aunties | Dana Hooker | Episode 28
Like all of the guests that join the Sounding Board Parenting podcast, Dana Hooker is a high performing parent in her own right. It was only 5 weeks after giving birth to her daughter Alice that was she back on the training track as an elite AFLW athlete. To say that footy is a BIG part of both Dana and Alice’s lives is an understatement. In fact, as an infant Alice would travel with her Mum and her teammates, otherwise known as Alice’s “30 Aunties” around the country all season long. Being a Mother has seemed to have had a positive impact on Dana’s career, with her already being the recipient of multiple club champion awards, multiple All-Australian team honours and being admired by many. Throughout this epic chat, we touch on several different areas of Dana’s parenting life including the challenges faced, how the parenting she experienced as a child helped to shape who we see today and what young Alice has taught her so far. If you hang on until the end, you may even hear young Alice having her own input into the conversation.
