I have spent the past fourteen years working with energy professionals around the world. I have a background in Petroleum Engineering and have many years of experience leading complex engineering projects from origination to execution and monitoring in Europe, North America, South East Asia, and Africa. I am on the board of the Society of Petroleum Engineers Aberdeen section as vice-chair Diversity and Inclusion. I started my career as a Production Assurance Engineer working on Production Optimisation and Performance Analysis of a 7 fields development project for BP In-Salah. I acquired experience in Production Optimisation of oil and gas assets from working with frontline operational teams in Asia, Middle East, North Africa, North America, and Europe, and I am now settled in Aberdeen over the past decade.
I am currently working as a Flow Assurance Projects Lead for a growing engineering consultancy focussing on strong project and risk management and assisting UK Continental Shelf operators with their ageing assets Flow Assurance challenges on an advisory role. As a STEM Ambassador, I am passionate about promoting engineering and STEM subjects to young people. I am currently collaborating with Scottish schools and academies to persuade the next generation of boys and girls that engineering is for them and be a positive role model to help them on their path.
I am also a certified Tutor Assessor for the Young STEM Leader Programme, a Scottish government initiative aiming to stimulate and strengthen the development of peer mentoring and inspiration in STEM for the young generation in Scotland. Like many women in STEM professions, I am involved in work on Equality and Diversity topics. I believe achieving gender balance within STEM, and the energy industry as a whole will have wide-reaching benefits for everyone.
