I joined BT in 2016 as an electronics engineer Apprentice, specialising in switch and transmission. I understand that the career pathway I chose as an engineer is currently a male dominated occupation, I hope to prove to both apprentices and those who work in engineering that females are also capable of achieving their goals in a STEM based role as well as getting involved in a variety of opportunities.

I openly admit to being the complete opposite of what a typical/stereotypical female within the engineering workplace is. I came with absolutely no engineering background whatsoever. I hope this demonstrates to others that with the right drive you can succeed.

As I went straight from education into a work place environment, I believe I have a strong connection with young people as I am of a similar age and can share my experience of making the transition from student to apprentice. I know from feedback that I am approachable which is vital to becoming successful in the work place.

In my spare time I like to dedicate my time to visiting primary schools, secondary schools, colleges and sixth forms. I really enjoy seeing that many students who never consider engineering start to reflect the opportunities that it can provide.

Outside of work I enjoy acrobatic gymnastics and have recently qualified as a British Gymnastic coach therefore I often coach at my community club.
