I have over 20 years of experience working in the information technology sector with a focus on mainframe technologies and mainframe infrastructure. I have been fortunate to work with and learn from many amazing colleagues and customers at the different companies I have worked with over the years, and I have performed a variety of roles which has enabled me to build and grow my professional and personal skillset. I have experience leading technology teams, designing and implementing technology strategies, teaching and mentoring colleagues – including managing new apprentices, project management and am comfortable working with auditors and senior IT leaders. I have been a catalyst for change and have implemented many new ideas and processes throughout my career. I am currently a Mainframe Business Specialist at Broadcom, where I work with customers to help them get the most out of their investment in the mainframe ecosystem and the Broadcom portfolio of products. Outside of the office, I love being active and spending time with my family doing various activities such as mountain biking/cycling, football( both playing and watching), tennis, SUP and getting out walking with our dog. I enjoy movies and going to music gigs (Radiohead @ Dundee Caird Hall 1997 being my favourite so far!) and am looking forward to attending these again as we move on from lockdown.
