What subjects did you take in school and how have these influenced your career path?

I always had a fondness for Maths and having an undergraduate Degree in Law and a professional qualification as a Solicitor, a career in tax allowed me to utilise my legal knowledge whilst developing a new skill in tax.

What subjects did you take in school and how have these influenced your career path?

For my Leaving Certificate I took the subjects, French, Geography and Business. Prior to applying for my cadetship I found out that I required a Science subject which I took up in my Leaving Certificate. 

A lot of my training and education through the Navy todate has been Maths and Science based particularly Physics. If I had a choice again I would have gone down this line in school to give me a better foundation. The subjects I chose just made everything slightly harder.

What subjects did you take in school and how have these influenced your career path?

Studying languages altered my career path the most - I studied French first and then Japanese, and these subjects led me to Luxembourg and Japan.
