I am a lesbian and I am a site engineer.//
I have recently graduated from the University of Portsmouth with a bachelors in Engineering Geology and Geotechnics. Whilst completing a placement year I found a passion in hydrogeology and jumped straight into a job in water management as soon as I finished my degree.
I have been out and proud from a very young age thanks to a very loving family that have supported me throughout my academic studies and whilst starting my new career. I found my most confident self when I started playing rugby where I found many other queer women in similar fields to myself, they encouraged me to reach all my goals and continue to show their unwavering support today.
I am very proud to be a queer woman in STEM and love seeing the increased amount of women being involved in such a male dominated industry.
