What career background did you have before joining the Museum?
I began working in museums in 2009 as a Front of House Assistant at the Ashmolean Museum during its major redevelopment. I then moved to London to develop my skills as a museum technician, taking a role in Operations at the Foundling Museum. Following this, I worked for the Museum of London as an Audio/Visual Technician where I designed, installed, and maintained the displays and exhibitions. During my time in London, I freelanced as a fine art courier and technician working in domestic, gallery, and art fair settings.
In 2019 I returned to the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford, before transferring to the Museum of Natural History in 2021. My current role brings together all of the skills I’ve learned during my career as a museum technician. I really love it here!
