Lydia Carthew

I am a Consulting Operations Officer for TechnologyOne – a job I never thought I’d end up in while possessing a Bachelor’s degree in Game Design. When I began my university journey, I was equally nervous and excited. Although I had many people try to steer me away from what I wanted to do, I…

Christine Roelofs

I always knew I liked numbers because numbers are very black and white.  I am not the creative or imaginative type so understandable why I was attracted to Accounting.  I have followed the very traditional path starting with a Graduate role along side University studies then only my CPA.  During the years I have progressed…

Alex Walker

I was never overly interested in school, and struggled to stay motivated, always leaving assignments until the last minute and just scraping through exams.  Hearing all my friends talk about going to uni, or the passion they had for their future career was daunting when I had no idea what I wanted to do, and…

Kaitlyn Casson

Born in South Coast NSW in a small beach town called Kiama, I changed my mind many times before the age of 16 of what I wanted to be when I grew up, and that is okay! The Royal Australian Navy was not something I thought I would ever do, but boy am I glad…

Alice Leerentveld

I am an Operational and Reporting Insights Engineer working for Urban Utilities. From a young age I knew I wanted to do something in the science and mathematics field but wasn’t sure what that could mean. Thanks to the guidance of various teachers in high school I was able to narrow down my interests and…
