As part of International Women and Girls in Science Day and in the lead up to International Women’s Day, Echoview is proud to celebrate our fabulous female staff through a month of highlighting their roles and contributions.
Our eight amazing women have many talents across science, mathematics, engineering and information technology as well as sales, marketing and administration, all directly benefiting the global hydroacoustic community.
We are pleased to introduce Echoview’s Documentation Lead, Suenor Woon. Sue has been with Echoview for 17 years and in that time has worked her way up to managing the documentation of our software. Echoview is continuously innovating, updating and releasing new versions, making this a monumental task where Sue’s skills are in constant demand.
Her role bridges science and research with our technical development team to ensure the integrity of the documentation of our systems and tools. A clear and correct help file gives our users confidence when processing their hydroacoustic data for their effective management of fisheries and marine environments.
This is a hugely important role to ensure that we speak in a language that connects with our customers.
Thank you Sue!
