Doreen was bitten by the Forensic Investigations and technology bug at an early age. She learnt about the investigation ecosystem as a whole with the objective of creating a foundation for continuous improvement in Forensic Investigation. She loves the idea of understanding new innovations e.g. Encase & FTK, and being ahead of the pack. As a self-taught Forensic Investigator, she never intended to have a career in a “science-based” field however the good feeling that comes from having contributed to justice being done, is motivating.
As an established woman in tech advocacy, she makes sure a proportion of her time goes towards making actionable changes to gender balance in the industry. Supporting women in STEM start-ups, which actively ensure diversity in all senses. Diversity and balance is the key in championing gender balance for future generations of women in tech.
