I have been a member of NatSCA since my volunteering years in museums and then latterly as a professional. I have gained so much from the membership, such as going on courses, attending conferences, not to mention receiving advice and support from my peers, that I wanted to give something back.
Career wise I have had the fortune of working in some fabulous institutions in the UK and abroad and I am now responsible for the Natural History provision of the Manx Museum and National Trust. This is a varied post, including advising on national policy, working with NGOs, supplying ecological advice on land management and planning, as well as my main role with collections management and all the list of things that includes.
