Director and Principal Consultant, MEGMS
New South Wales, Australia
Marianne is a geologist, business owner and mother of two young boys. Born and raised in a modest, suburban Sydney household, Marianne’s decision to become a geologist came as a surprise to her non-scientific parents. Her mother’s advice that geology would be a male-dominated and remote field to work in proved to be the case. Marianne’s career has taken her from the top of Australia in Weipa to the pits of the earth underground in Mount Isa. Currently based in the Hunter Valley of NSW running her own consultancy, Marianne has worked in exploration and mining for over 20 years.
