I’m a heritage and museum professional and a Masters of Museum and Heritage Studies graduate from the University of Sydney. Currently, I work as the Exhibitions and Education Officer at Gladstone Regional Art Gallery and Museum. I have a Bachelor of Arts (Hons.) from the University of Queensland majoring in History and German. In addition to my studies in Australia, I have also completed two semesters abroad in Berlin at Humboldt Universitat zu Berlin and a Goethe German language course in Munich.
I have been a dedicated museum/heritage volunteer, intern, and member of staff since 2010 working alongside the Queensland Parliamentary Library, Queensland Police Museum, MacArthur World War II Museum, Abbey Museum of Art and Archaeology, the Commissariat Store Museum, and the RD Milns Antiquities Museum. Since relocating to Sydney I have been involved with the Nicholson Museum, the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences or the Powerhouse Museum, the Museum of Human Disease and the World Heritage Site Cockatoo Island. In 2015, I completed an internship with the Geoffrey Kaye Museum of Anaesthetic History in Melbourne.
While in Sydney, I balanced a variety of roles:
- Educator & Tour Guide – Sydney Harbour Federation Trust
- Gallery Officer, Program Producer, & Volunteer Program Officer – Museum of Applied Arts & Sciences
- Museum Assistant – Hurstville Museum
- Curator and Archivist – Harry Daly Museum
- Digitisation Assistant – State Library of New South Wales
- Curriculum Program Deliverer – Sydney Living Museums
Museum and heritage areas I am most interested in include collection management, coordinating volunteers, education, and program production. This blog will hopefully document what I am most passionate about – museums and heritage.
