I am an Infrastructure Designer studying a Bachelor of Civil Engineering - Part Time, at Queensland University of Technology.

I joined the engineering industry in 2017 as a Civil Engineering Technician. My role was to support and deliver high quality technical outputs through project set up, providing design plans and drawings for civil construction works. As an Infrastructure Designer I am responsible for undertaking detailed design and documentation of fully coordinated Civil Infrastructure in accordance with relevant design standards under limited guidance of a supervising engineer.

I am extremely passionate about gender equity in STEM careers. As a woman working in the engineering industry, I strongly believe that it is our responsibility to break the stereotypes of what an engineer should look like, it's is our responsibility to build a more accessible path for women, to feel supported, heard and understood.

I am a team player, eager to learn and expand my experience as a professional. I enjoy helping society through sustainable and accessible infrastructure designs.
