What do you like about your job?
I like sitting down with a blank piece of paper and sketching something out with a pencil. You can start off with something really simple, work out the detail, build it and then make it operational. Our new filling station at A-Gas was a project very much like that. There’s a lot of satisfaction in working in a team, ending up with something that works well and being told by the guys using it that they are happy with what you have delivered.
Do you have time for a job and a family?
How do we encourage more women to take up a career in refrigeration?
It is a rewarding and enjoyable career for a woman in the refrigeration industry. I believe that there’s nothing to stop a woman being successful in our industry. In my various roles in engineering I’ve come across nothing that I could not do because of my gender. I’ve been fortunate that I’ve always had positive working relationships. I’ve come to the conclusion that most people are just concerned about whether you can do the job.
