ExpertiseDirector Heritage Consultancy
I joined Wessex Archaeology as Consultancy Director in 2017 after previously working for the company early on in my career as a founding member of the Consultancy Team. I left Wessex in 2011 to set up my own consultancy but am delighted to have returned as a Director to head up the work of a large team of heritage consultants and built heritage specialists across four of our regional offices.
After gaining a first-class degree in Archaeology and a Masters in Landscape Archaeology from Bristol University, I was a consultant on a number of long running and complex assessments including the authorship of a review of the treatment of archaeology within the Environmental Impact Assessment process on historic trunk road schemes commissioned by Highways England. I have also authored and managed over 300 archaeological desk-based assessments, including setting assessments, conservation management plans and other specialist heritage reports. I am a Member of the Chartered Institute for Archaeologists (MCIfA).
I am motivated by the challenge of finding pragmatic and sustainable solutions for clients by using archaeology and heritage to add value to projects.
Outside of work I am an avid knitter and reader of post-apocalyptic fiction.
