- Regional Background
After completing high school, I began working in a small civil construction company as a I.T Technician. A couple years later I relocated to Brisbane and started work in a large engineering firm as a Trainee structural designer. Unfortunately, I became redundant, so I moved back home and started work in a local butcher shop.
In 2017 along came my beautiful daughter Amelia. Life as I knew it had just become a whole lot busier, but I am now even more determined to succeed. Little did I know that in just 12 months’ time I would be kick starting the beginning of my career.
Now as an Apprentice I look back at what I have achieved, how far I have come and can’t wait to help other girls on their own pathway to success.

Working on a live gas plant some typical jobs can include working with voltage and current meters, playing with engineering computer software, using electronic probes to diagnose faults, ensuring emergency controls activate when needed or installing a 4.5T gas turbine.
