About Me

My career in the museum and heritage sector began over 20 years ago and I'm an experienced curator and collections management specialist. I have worked with independent museums, Local Authority museums, Charitable Trusts, and National organisations including the British Museum, Museums Association, and the Collections Trust.

Alongside my practical networks I am a skilled researcher and writer. I gained my PhD in 2022 and now share my knowledge of disposal with the sector, helping museums become more confident in managing their collections, and bringing transparency to their workings.
