I have worked in museums for the past 20 years, having graduated with a degree in Ancient History and Archaeology. I started in museums as a volunteer and this experience helped me secure my first paid role at the Museum of Lincolnshire Life, as a documentation assistant in 1997. I had the opportunity to develop my career taking on a number of roles to broaden my experience in different areas of museum activity, principally collections management. It was here that I had my first management roles, enabling me to move to Calderdale Council in 2005 as their Head of Museums and then in 2014 to Leicestershire County Council into my current role as Head of Service Development, where I have responsibility for the County Museum and Heritage, which includes archives.
