A dynamic workshop manager with an electrical engineering background, I am curious by nature and am always looking to learn new things. I work at the Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation (ANSTO) with a team of highly skilled mechanical and fabrication specialists. We manufacture critical parts for Australia’s only nuclear reactor that in turn, helps us find solutions to some of the biggest questions in science for the benefit of all Australians.

The most satisfying part of my job is the manufacturing cycle where an idea transforms into an actual item and then implemented and applied.

One career highlight is being given the great opportunity to participate in the Superstars of STEM program. This allows me to communicate my passion, which is, gender equity in the engineering trades’ fields. Is that person you?
