Kerrine Bryan is an engineer and author from the United Kingdom. She is the founder of Butterfly Books and currently lives in New York with her husband and two daughters. She is the lead electrical engineer for WSP, a global engineering and professional services consultancy.
She is a volunteer mentor for the IET and a STEM Ambassador, with a passion for educating youngsters on careers for women in STEM.
While working at large oil and gas contractor, she decided to volunteer doing talks about her job across the country to children. It was then that she got the idea to develop a range of children’s books that could tackle some of the misconceptions about the profession, which she argues begin from a very early age.
Kerrine then founded ‘Butterfly Books’ with her brother. The aim of these books was to create stories that will be a helpful teaching resource enabling children to see the opportunities available to them and eventually help close skills gaps and reduce gender bias in professions. Bryan has published five books as of 2019 under ‘Butterfly Books’.
