Fun facts about me!

When not STEM-ing, you can find me…
Relaxing! Which, for me, is walking the dog in the countryside.
My career path…
My STEM journey started when I was working as a translator for an engineering company in London and was given a brand new computer aided design (CAD) PC. I picked up the manual and worked out how to use it and a few months later transferred to their IT department! I moved to work for a firm of lawyers as ‘Head of Technical Systems and Support’ and returned to the Island in 1999 to join Hansard as ‘Supervisor Systems Security’ becoming ‘Director of IT’ in 2009.
I chaired the Chamber of Commerce Digital Committee from 2004 – 2020 and have been a Digital Agency Board member since 2018.
