Principle, Evolve Sustain Pty Ltd (Self Employed)

It was the desire for variety and transferable skills that could support a lifestyle of flexibility and travel that led Katrina to choose the IT industry over 20 years ago. After starting as a programmer, Katrina chose to try a myriad of roles including Systems Analyst, Senior Software Design Analyst, Product Support Manager, Implementation Consultant, Pre-Sales Consultant and Senior Business Analyst. 

Her choices have found her living and travelling through Asia, leading a FIFO lifestyle between Gold Coast and Tasmania, meeting amazing people and learning new cultures. On her journey, she has helped aircraft engineers design a workshop system, university faculties align their practices, vessel traffic officers implement a decision support tool to track vessels transiting the Great Barrier Reef, and port surveyors and dredgers source software to manage commercial and environmental requirements.

After branching out on her own she found her sweet spot – providing Senior Business Analyst skills in the space where Operational Technology meets ICT in highly technical environments undergoing major technological transformation. Her current gig is with the Department of Regional Development, Manufacturing and Water helping to evaluate emerging technologies such as image velocimetry and satellite imagery to measure surface water in the Northern Murray Darling Basin.
