As soon as I joined AtkinsRéalis, I said yes to the opportunity to work on a project with Solihull Metropolitan Borough Council. I grew up in Solihull, so I was keen to be involved in this project. I felt proud to improve and develop the area's places and spaces. Since then, I've worked with numerous other local authorities, such as Birmingham, where I work, and Coventry, where I studied.
