Military Personnel
    (circa 1965- )
    Born in United Kingdom
    Resided in Argyll, Scotland
    Former British Armed Forces Warrant Officer
    First female to be appointed a Beefeater Yeoman Warder at the Tower of London in London, England (December 2006)
    Began official Beefeater duties (September 3, 2007)
    The origin of her job position's Beefeater nickname is disputed.
    She was unable to begin her Beefeater duties immediately after her appointment due to her British Army service obligations.
    Despite the history of female leadership in British monarchy, government and military, her break in the male Yeoman Warder tradition was criticized by some people.
    She admitted to carrying cosmetics in her Beefeater uniform pockets.
    She was allegedly afraid of ravens, a protected commodity at the Tower.
    She became part of an organization that has been guarding and serving the Tower of London since 1485.
    She competed with five male candidates for her position and became the first female Beefeater after two women had previously applied for the job.
    She had previously served in the British Army for over 20 years, attaining the Warrant Officer rank.
    She stated that her Army experience prepared her for a position in an all male work environment, and she discussed her military experience to defend her Beefeater position to others.
    She had the same job description, benefits and uniform as her male co- workers.
    Her job description included 21 specific daily duties, guarding the tower's Crown Jewels, and being a Tower tour guide.
