What advice would you have for young women who are interested in a STEM career or job?
Go for it! Lots of women feel put off getting into traditionally men’s jobs. That perception needs to change and it will be changed through young women pursuing what they enjoy doing.
How did you get to where you are today?
Through lots of hard work. Maths did not come naturally to me. I would sit at home and watch maths teaching videos. As I got older and into GCSEs and a levels my teachers were invaluable. I went to every extra lessons possible and then pursued maths at university through a bed degree.
What do you do on a daily basis in your work?
I teach primary school children of all ages, maths. We do this in such a way that our students understand the core skills in order to apply them to other situations.
Who or what inspired you to get into STEM?
The subject of maths inspired me.
What do you enjoy most about your role?
It’s very rewarding. I enjoy teaching a core subject in a way that I never felt I had.
What do you like to do outside work?
I walk my dog a lot, enjoy the outdoors.
