About me

I am an Adventurist that can do anything I set my mind to. I’m excited about helping other females recognise the potential in themselves, in all aspects of their life.

I have been working in the Telecommunications Industry for over 25 years and I’m currently working as a Project Support Centre Manager on two key projects supporting the national broadband network. 

I’m really excited to mentor other girls and women to choose a path that is non-traditional, as it leads to fresh thinking and new ideas that can ensure success for both the individual and the company within these type of sectors.

YOU really can do anything you choose to set your mind to.
