Biography
I am the only female Mechanical Engineer at Phillips 66 Humber refinery. The refinery is one of the most complicated in Europe and we produce all kinds of products from crude oil. I have worked at the refinery since graduating from Manchester University (UK) in 2007. I gained my 'Chartership' status with the Institute of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) in 2012. I have had a number of different roles during my career and i have found them all to be interesting and challenging. I am married and have a little boy who is nearly 2. I had a year off from work to have my baby and i now juggle my family life with my career.
