About Anne O’Shannon

Anne began her career at 15, as a clerk in the NSW Public Service. One of Anne’s first memorable tasks was making the manager his tea. Although unacceptable now, it taught her the value of service for others, continuing throughout Anne’s life, with volunteer roles in schools, Surf Lifesaving and the community.

Later, as more opportunities became available for women in STEM, Anne went to university to study Science. This took 7 years to achieve while she also raised children. Anne continued her education with a Post Graduate Certificate in Public Health while working fulltime. Anne has spent her career encouraging other mature aged women to consider retraining in STEM and accessing opportunities that were discouraged when Anne was younger.
