Assisting in building and testing the electrical components of our Collaborative robot applications, Keri is currently studying for her level 3 Electrotechnical diploma at Newtown college. Keri continues to perform at the top of her class, achieving the second highest exam result for her most recent assessment.
Speaking to Keri, she says: “I’ve always grown up with more male friends, I think that made me more comfortable working in a male environment and now I don’t really think too much of it.”
In 2018 Keri competed in the World Skills Electrical competition, testament to her character and competitive nature. The competition was a good opportunity for Keri to showcase her skills and not only prove that she’s talented, but show that women can excel in sectors traditionally seen as male. “The competition was all boys, so walking into the competition I felt like all eyes were on me as I was the only girl in there, but as soon as the competition started I didn’t really feel out of place, I stuck my head down and got on with it.”
