How did you become interested in engineering?
An Education Scheme project run by the Royal Academy of Engineering in partnership with local industry.
What excites you about engineering?
Working with a diverse array of people, from all backgrounds, educational and experience levels and viewpoints to transform science and technology advances into projects that will deliver tangible benefits to mankind.
What have you seen change for women in engineering throughout your career?
Yes, and no. There are more women in STEM, but still aren’t enough at the higher levels of technical leadership or management within EPCMVs, and it is still difficult for women to return to work after a career break.
What is the most fascinating part of your job or daily routine?
I don’t have a daily routine! Every day is an opportunity to learn something new.
Did you have any mentors as you were going through your career? How did they influence your decisions?
Yes, male and female. They acted as role models and mirrors to my experiences.
What advice would you like to share with future women engineers?
Ask for what you need, and communicate your boundaries between work, play and home life; you don’t always need to justify why.
