With a career in technology spanning 20 years, Vanessa is a Principal of Automation and Tools at BHP. From Developer to SysOps, through to Support and DevOps Wrangler, her journey has been transformational. While giving a conference talk to 500+ attendees, Vanessa’s Jimmy Choo stilettos went through a gap in the stage and she nearly fell. This is just one of the lessons learnt while speaking as a woman over the last 5 years. Her current ambition is to encourage more women into the speaker circuit by causing shenanigans at a local developer conference and running free workshops for women in STEM in Brisbane. She is just an introverted nerd like you, covered in dog hair, but now in lower heels.
