I am a very target-focused person and set high expectations of myself in order to inspire me to achieve my goals.”

One of my goals was to lead the Hydraulic team – and I’m proud to have been given this opportunity. To head up such a strong team with a successful and respected history is exciting, and to continue this growth trajectory is a challenge I look forward to.

The part of my job I find the most satisfying would be seeing our team take initiatives, produce excellent documentation and tick all the boxes for our clients, especially as it encourages repeat business and strong relationships. It’s also exciting seeing our team embracing the latest technologies and adapting them to their work.

Outside of work I’m a surfer – whenever there are decent waves!  It gives me timeout and allows me to relax and enjoy mother nature. I have also recently fallen back in love with my passion of riding sports bikes (1000cc motorbike), after a 10yr hiatus. However, my true love is my 2-year-old girl. It’s fantastic to see her grow and develop and be so inquisitive about life.
