Maria Frank, Project Support Officer

Maria Frank, Project Support Officer

What’s your background?

Material Scientist & Engineer by degree and former Physics Teacher. When I left teaching I worked on public sector projects and proposals for the media studios and trucks.

In the end, I found my calling in Supply Chain Management for the Aerospace Industry. I worked with understanding the client requirements and setting up processes to enable us to deliver on supply contracts with many of the largest aerospace manufacturers in the UK and Europe.

Describe your role at Difrent.

Project Support Officer working to support Delivery and Commercial Teams across the Business.

Who are you outside of Difrent?

Scout Leader, Cat mum, collector of books, and lover of adventures. I am also a fan of table top and a Live Action role player where I have played a wide variety of characters such as a Priest to a mercurial god in ancient Persia, a Victorian a team-punk engineer and Space Amazon.

Looking forward to when I can plan my next adventure in a fictional role play setting and the next overland adventure in the real world!

Who would you invite to dinner, dead or alive?

I don’t think I can pick one person. I would love to sit and chat about the experiences of pioneering STEM women working for NASA so Margaret Hamilton, Katherine Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan, Mary Jackson, Sally Ride, and Mae Jemison.
