I am the new Wessex Museums Collections Manager which involves working with Poole, Dorset County and Wiltshire museums whilst being based at Salisbury Museum!
I studied History and Museum Studies at university whilst also volunteering and interning for the National Trust for Scotland and various museums. My background is mainly in collections but I have also worked in conservation, and heritage management. This led me to moving to Salisbury a couple of years ago to work for English Heritage and manage the site up at Old Sarum. This role made me very interested in the history of Salisbury so I’m delighted to be amongst the collections at Salisbury Museum!
My role at Salisbury Museum will involve helping to organise the new store (at the Old Sarum Industrial Park), sorting out loans for exhibitions, and managing the many collections projects – amongst many other things. Please do pop along to my office (down from the Computer room) if you ever need any assistance with the collections, or just for a chat about your projects. I have enjoyed learning about several of the projects so far and would like to hear about all of them so that I can help out whenever needed!
