Why did you choose this field?

While working in television production I saw that there were very few female news directors. I wanted to challenge myself, so I studied under my production manager and set my sights on being a newscast director.

What do you look at and think, "I wish younger me would have known this was possible"?

I wouldn't have waited so long go for it.

Why do you love working in STEM?

I look forward to bringing I ideas and stories to life. I'm a very hands on technical person and always up for the challenge.

Best advice for next generation?

Always be confident in your abilities
