I was born and educated in Dundee where after several years in industry I enjoyed being a full-time mother for my 3 children. When I returned to paid work it was initiaIly to the service industries before I successfully applied for a junior role in DNA Sequencing and Services. It has worked out really well and my role has evolved – I’m now proficient in most areas of the service with a key role in plate preparation. My experiences elsewhere have sharpened my time management and attention to detail and it’s nice to have that discipline valued within the team. In my spare time my hubbie and I love spending time with our grandchildren – and then love handing them back!
