What do you do?
I am a qualified management accountant and SAP certified consultant with over 25 years of industry experience, specifically in Oil and Gas industry.
Why did you choose this field?
At a very young age, I knew that I needed to combine two disciplines to forge a successful career and so I chose to focus on getting both a finance and IT qualification.
What do you look at and think, "I wish younger me would have known this was possible"?
Knowledge is the key to breaking down barriers and the glass ceiling. With knowledge comes confidence in being able to communicate your ideas to your peers and seniors.
Why do you love working in STEM?
I love empowering my business users in ensuring that they concentrate on value add tasks while the repetitive tasks are automated. The next step is in assisting them in extracting information from vast amount of finance and business data to support better decision making.
Best advice for next generation?
Combine creativity with IT and the sky is the limit. Thinking laterally has never been as important than in this age where new ways of working and living are being forged.
