Demi is a Real Estate Project Manager at Turner and Townsend in Newcastle. She has worked there for two years and studied Physical Geography at Northumbria University before joining as a graduate in September 2017.
Demi had never considered a career in construction before joining T&T, but was encouraged to join the industry after attending a presentation organised by the University and being fascinated by the life changing projects T&T were involved in in the North East. Her experience has ranged from the programme management of the Tyneside Air Quality study to the Project Management of two new leisure facilities in Newcastle for the council.
Demi joined the committee in December and took on the role as mentoring coordinator, which is an active NAWIC NE initiative which looks to support women in the construction industry, as well as encouraging more women to join the industry. This has been a huge success, with 14 students from Northumbria University now matched with a mentor in the construction industry. She has now taken on the role as Vice Co-chair and is hoping to inspire future generations to join the industry.
