I am a technology consultant, working within Accenture’s Digital Practice and specialising in Mobility, with expertise in corporate mobile device services and operations, as well as Digital project management. I have experience in enterprise readiness and project management within the telecoms, energy and financial services industries, including requirements gathering, process and technology design, multi-supplier project management, stakeholder management and engagement, and mobility strategy. I have completed training in Mobility, presentation skills, app development and more, and I am a certified Scrum Master (PSM I).
I graduated from Christ Church, Oxford university with a 2.1 in Philosophy, Politics and Economics and was very involved in the Officers’ Training Corps, including leadership training, field exercises and being promoted to Assistant Adventurous Training Officer. I was also college Freshers Rep and in the committee for Oxford Women in Politics, as well as doing some college rowing.
I am passionate about women’s progression in business and getting more women into technology careers. I am involved in my company’s women’s network and now lead our Digital group. I set up a schools programme for Year 7 and 8 girls, and am now the key point of contact for all girls/women in STEM initiatives across our UKI business.
I am an assistant Girlguiding leader (senior section, age 14-18) in East London, a freeman of the Worshipful Company of Ironmongers and a journeyman of the Worshipful Company of Information Technologists. I have also recently completed my training with the First Aid Nursing Yeomanry (Princess Royal’s Volunteer Corps) and am now an active member. I enjoy travel, spending my free time on active and cultural holidays, and I also love property. I renovated my own house and a flat which I rent out, and am currently in the process of buying another property to let and am hoping to build a new dwelling next year if the planning application is successful.
