At the 2009 AGM Ursula took on the role of Branch Treasurer – just as the BCS altered the financial year and many aspects of branch budgeting!
Ursula is a STEM ambassador and is involved in Imagineering (http://imagineering.org.uk/get-involved/).
After many years as a software developer for large internationals, Ursula went back to school to gain a BSc Hons, a Postgraduate Diploma in Computing and, most recently, a Masters in Information Technology for Management. To ensure her qualifications weren’t purely academic, she gained the ISEB Foundation certificate in Software Testing and also became a PRINCE2 Practitioner and a Certified ScrumMaster. Her work is now an interesting mix of technical writing and proof-reading, tutoring for the Open University and providing learning support for disabled students.
Ursula is a Member of the BCS, a Member of the Womens Engineering Society (WES) and a Member of the Institute for Scientific and Technical Communicators (ISTC).
