I started my journey within the IT industry as 1 of 2 women to join IBMs first round of the apprenticeship program back in 2010. Fresh out of college, with very little concept of ‘what I wanted to be when I grew up’.

During my first few years, I took the opportunity to explore and challenge the industry, trying to find my feet in what felt like a whole new world. I was given the opportunity to try a wide selection of roles, from Testing to Support desk, all the way through to Public Relations. Having this experience provided me with a breadth of knowledge, but also spike my passion for the industry, and this set me on my career path to become a Senior Project Manager.
