I am a freelance consultant who is passionate about supporting and empowering others to provide inspiring, high quality learning opportunities for visitors to heritage sites, museums and galleries and community spaces.

Having worked in charities throughout my career I specialise in creating engagement opportunities that help your visitors create special memories when you have a small budget.

Heritage sites, collections, stories and audiences of all ages are at the heart of my work.

I will work with you to inspire, engage and put visitors at the centre of your organisation’s offer in different ways, whether that is through providing training for you and your team, as a project manager or creating new resources.
