‘I have always had an interest in engineering and how it involves everything around us. This led me to an undergraduate Masters degree in Civil and Architectural Engineering.'
‘During my degree I undertook industrial placements with the RNLI’s Estates Team and was lucky enough to be employed by them when I graduated in 2008. Since then I have mainly been involved with the design and construction of new lifeboat stations and slipways all around the UK and Republic of Ireland, including the renewable energy systems in our boathouses.
‘Seeing a lifeboat launch down a brand new slipway for the first time gives a great sense of job satisfaction!’
