About me

  • Regional Background

My senior school subjects were English, Maths C, Maths B, Physics, Chemistry and Home Economics. I was struggling to choose what I was going to do after high school because there were just too many options! 

Then someone from Central Queensland University came to talk to my cohort about the engineering program they offered. I really liked the sound of a challenging, technical profession with so many different industries/areas available to work in. 

21 months of industry placements during my 4.5 years of study helped me decide the electricity industry was where I wanted to be. Upon graduating, I joined the Ergon Energy graduate program and completed rotations in Rockhampton and Townsville for 3 years.

After the graduate program I started my current role at Yurika as a Product Engineer in the Energy and Infrastructure team.
