Joining the Royal New Zealand Army has brought Corporal Kelly Whittle some of the best times of her life. Currently training the next generation of Defence Force medics, Kelly is a strong advocate for women joining the armed services.
“If you want a career that pushes you, that gives you something to aspire to every day, that allows you to go all over the world, this one’s got everything.”
