Biography

I am passionate about combining Technology and Engineering to solve our world's challenges and create an inclusive environment for all. I work to achieve this through leading a not for profit organisation Power of Engineering focused on shaping a diverse Engineering workforce in Australia and working at BHP as part of the Coal Technology Team in project delivery.

I am a true believer to create an inclusive environment for all and remove unconscious bias designs, we need to have an Engineering workforce that reflects our community. As President of Power of Engineering I lead a team of exceptional volunteers across Australia working with the Engineering industry and education sector to grow  diversity in our Engineering pipeline in Australia. We offer two school programs, to challenge student perceptions about Engineering and showcase how Engineering is relevant in their local community. 

At BHP, I work with a variety of teams across our Coal sites and Minerals Australia operations to identify and understand their current challenges and explore how we can leverage technology and Engineering to deliver value by improving safety and productivity.
