Portrait of Sergeant Tania Holland

Sergeant Tania Holland joined the Army later in life than many others and so led an interesting life before donning DPCU.

Born in Wangaratta in 1976, she held down jobs as an Assurance Clerk, Bar Maid and worked in hospitals. It was whilst working in Scotland that she visited the Edinburgh Military Tattoo where she saw an Australian Soldier and was so inspired that she joined the Army in 2000.

Her father, formerly a rifleman/machine-gunner with the 4th Battalion, Royal Australian Regiment could not have been more proud and was even moreso when she fulfilled her desire to become a medic where she served with the 1st Battalion group in East Timor.

Sgt Holland is a well deserving member of 3rd Brigade and her service and professionalism has been recognised with her receiving the 3rd Brigade's Junior Leader award.
