I started my career at West Yorkshire Archive Service, Wakefield training to become an Archive Conservator through the Archives & Records Association Training Scheme for Conservators qualifying in 1998. Whilst still working at WYAS I was awarded a certificate in Map Instruction in 2008, to teach conservation trainees map conservation.

I began working for the Highland Archive Service in 2009 as Senior Conservator. In 2010 I was successfully awarded accreditation status after years of fine tuning my portfolio, more recently I completed a Masters in Preventive Conservation whilst studying via distance learning through Northumbria University in 2013. I thoroughly enjoy my job at the Highland Archive Service helping look after an extensive collection covering the whole of the Highland region. The daily job can cover a range of tasks, no day is the same. We are also building a client base of external work and contracts, which lets you see other people’s hidden archival gems.

High Life Highland Conservation Studios provide conservation services for the museum and archive sector in Scotland. We are a multi-disciplinary studio across two sites in the Highlands, and we undertake work on behalf of external clients in the areas of paper, books, parchment, photographs, historic artefacts, archaeology, porcelain, and preventive conservation. We also assist and guide in surveys, provide support for grant applications, preparation for digitisation projects, as well as delivering training for staff and volunteers from museums and archives. The studios are modern, well equipped, spacious and secure work spaces, specifically designed for conservation.
