Curiosity

The most interesting thing I've worked on in my career so far...

Bringing a new product to life and being involved in the different discussions that contributed towards the final product

What inspired me into digital and tech...

A friend told me about her non standard journey into tech, she made me realise that I had been pigeon-holing myself. I'd always had an interest in technology and she helped me realise that this was something I could develop!

My educational background is...

Standard GCSEs & A-Levels with a focus on Arts subjects. BA Politics, MA English, & most recently my ISTQB Software Testing certification

What advice I'd give to girls thinking about a career in digital and tech...

Don't be put off by perceptions. The industry is far more welcoming, accessible, and inclusive than any other environment I've worked in. A career in digital or tech doesn't mean coding, there is a lot variety to be found!
