Tell us about yourself
I live in Limerick with my husband and two teenagers. I love reading, and walking and I enjoy watching my son play football and hurling. I am also a loyal supporter of the Limerick Hurling team.

Tell us about your role at Redfaire
I joined Redfaire seven years ago as a Senior JDE Project Manager for one of our largest accounts, Circle K Europe. It was a great experience. The team at Circle K is always innovating and pushing boundaries.
I have changed roles and I now work with the Customer Success Team. I still get to work with the team at Circle K as well as a number of other JD Edwards clients. My role involves helping our clients to grow their businesses and ensuring that the Redfaire team is meeting all the customer's needs.

How did you get started working in technology?
At 16, whilst in secondary school, I selected Computer Studies as an 'A' level subject as girls were being encouraged in the school system to move into the technology industry. I found a course at Huddersfield Polytechnic that combined business and computing. My placement year was spent at the Inland Revenue as a developer on their PAYE system - I didn't like the development side but I did learn a lot about documentation as the government required very detailed documentation on every aspect of the software development life cycle. On graduating, I went to London to work for a software consultancy house where I started as a business analyst and then moved up to a consultant/project manager role.

Tell us more....
Travel is one of my passions.  I love discovering new cities and cultures. Over the next 3-5 years I hope to travel more, I would like to get back to Australia, but also to get to know more of Ireland. I also want to get a dog.
