Based in the Salisbury office, I have recently moved to the IT department. Previously I worked five years in the finds department, where my role was to: clean, identify, record and catalogue all material types, giving me a wide understanding of the material discoveries made by the company. I also supervised volunteers and students.
My new role in IT is first line Support Engineer where I manage the IT helpdesk prioritising support call levels and undertake basic IT troubleshooting. I also assist with building servers, data analysis, building software and hardware. I am currently expanding my skillsets to include Union Square, Office 365, DNS and DHCP. These new skills will be used to support large infrastructure projects.
For my role as STEM ambassador, I have worked on large scale outreach projects such as Project Nightingale and the “Big Bang” Festival. Being a STEM ambassador means I proactively seek to inspire young people’s interest within the science, technology, engineering and mathematics career paths varying in age; from early years story-telling (from stories I have written) to presentations at university conferences.
I am also a trained as a TV presenter, and I am familiar with multiple presenting techniques. I can present flexibly outdoors as well as within a studio. I am known for my work presenting a popular miniseries for Wessex Archaeology called “What’s in the box?”. I thoroughly enjoy film work and cannot wait to do more.
My passion for my work is highly reflected with everything I do. I love the fact that there is always something new to learn with Wessex Archaeology; and new discoveries never cease to inspire and excite me. I am proud to work for the company and be given the opportunity to educate and inspire others through heritage.
Outside of work, my passion is gardening, where I enjoy collecting and growing rare plants that are “difficult” to grow. I also enjoy: cooking, exercising and watching my son play ruby. Together we love: exploring the Jurassic Coast, visiting castles, and learning about history and folklore.
