I started my career working in libraries, however upon completing a Masters degree in Museum Studies and volunteering in various museums, I joined the Collections Trust working on a number of projects. This included developing the Find a Library service and the JISC funded Contextual Wrappers 2 project. In March 2012 I started managing the Partage Plus project for the Collections Trust, this is an Art Nouveau digitisation project, funded by the European Commission which is opening up access to over 75,000 Art Nouveau objects held in organisations across Europe.

My role as Projects & Programmes Manager is to provide support to the projects and programmes that we run, providing project coordination, communication, administration and reporting to the project stakeholders, and acting as a representative of the organisation to an international audience.

I spend my spare time visiting museums and exhibitions, reading, travelling, vegetarian cooking and researching my family history.
