Amy has been working as part of the LotusWorks team for almost 10 years, having joined as an Administrator and working her way up to Lead Document Controller, Amy has a diverse educational background, having studied Music, Ancient Classics, and Business in college. Having such varied degrees has taught her the importance of building a strong skill set and gaining the most from every opportunity.
“During my time in college, I learned you get out of things what you put in. I researched in detail each degree and chose the skills I needed to build upon. For me, developing my skills in the areas of research, organisation, and communication has stood to me helping me professionally.” says Amy .

“Attitude and desire are everything. Having a good basis for the role is important but having a hunger for learning and knowledge is a must.”
With International Women in Engineering Day around the corner, we asked Amy if there anything she’s learned and any advice she would give her younger self.
“Say ‘no’ more often. Saying yes means saying no to something else. We all have a finite amount of time and how we choose to spend it is important. I’ve also learned, nothing is ever as simple as it seems – taking time to prioritise and set goals ensures we meet deadlines and perform to the highest level as a team.”
