Katie Treadaway studied a Bachelor of Social Sciences majoring in Geography and Environmental Planning at the University of Waikato. "I always enjoyed Geography at school and I like the environment and being outdoors, so I chose a course that reflected my interests," says Katie.
Katie is a Senior Planner at a New Zealand Architecture & Planning company. She enjoys the variety in her job, where a day at work might consist of site visits, consultations with landowners or report writing.
"Report writing often means developing robust arguments, so I'm thankful I was able to develop good written communication skills at university."
Katie advises those considering university study to follow their passion. "Choose papers that interest you, then you'll do your best", she says. "I chose papers that interested me throughout my study and was able to graduate with a double major in the subjects I really enjoyed."
