National Trust for Scotland
I have been working in Museums for the past 15 years, starting in Historic houses in Western Canada and for the past 10 years have made the North of Scotland my home.
While in the UK I have worked in local authority museums and latterly for the National Trust for Scotland; first as the Learning Manager for Culloden Battlefield and Visitor Centre and more recently as Interim Property Manager for the site where I am responsible for budgets, planning, health and safety and team leadership.
I am currently the chair for the Group for Education for Museums Scotland, and have been both committee member and chair of the Highland Museums forum.
I have a MA in Museum and Gallery Education and have recently been awarded the AMA from the Museums Association.
Fife Cultural Trust
Having completed a MSc in Museum Theory & Practice at the University of Glasgow in 2011, I have held continuous employment in both collections management and curatorial roles within museums and galleries throughout the central belt of Scotland.
I was appointed as collections curator with Fife Culture Trust in August 2017. Prior to this role I was the collections management project officer with Renfrewshire Leisure and an assistant curator with Falkirk Community Trust.
I am currently a member of the Scottish Museums Federation and actively participate in many cultural heritage networks throughout Scotland and the UK.
My research interests lie in women's history, subcultures and contemporary collecting. I'm particularly interested in women's history during times of conflict, specifically during the First World War.
I have worked in the heritage sector for almost 17 years, in learning, outreach and community engagement in local authority and national organisations.
My previous job at National Museums Scotland involved strategic partnerships across Scotland, both within the sector and with other cultural or audience-focused organisations.
I am a committee member of the Scottish Museums Federation and have previously served as a joint convenor of GEM Scotland.
