My interest lies in promoting people’s understanding of their local heritage, making the past interesting, relevant and exciting for a variety of different audiences. By working closely with clients and listening to their particular needs, I am able to apply for and run amazing projects with tangible outcomes.
I have twelve years experience in the heritage sector working with museums, universities, charities and other organisations. I have run a number of projects, making succesful applications for funding, curating exhibitions and providing strategic leadership and direction.
I am an Arts Council Accreditation Mentor for Pitstone Museum and the Rumble Museum, Oxford, a Trustee of the Buckinghamshire Military Museum Trust and a board member of the Fete Day Company. I ran the Education Service at Banbury Museum for many years following twenty years in Education.
