Tell us about yourself

This included jobs as diverse as fixed income trading compliance to portfolio analysis and managing new graduate schemes. I have a degree in Chemical Engineering from Princeton University in the USA. What I love about my job is hearing ideas from the girls about their future--Their enthusiasm and thoughtfulness is inspiring.

What are you looking forward to?

Getting to know the girls on an individual basis and helping them to refine their career plans as they progress through the school.

Tell us an interesting fact about yourself

I spent a summer doing work experience at The Natural History Museum in New York City that involved grinding up dinosaur bones for scientific analysis.
