How I ended up at RAMM

Prior to working as a consultant with RAMM I worked as a museum educator in Somerset. Before this I had been a teacher for over a decade. I’ve worked with quite a few museums and heritage sites big and small, and love working with RAMM’s fantastic team.

I was a teacher in primary and secondary schools and taught a range of subjects from history to science. Prior to working in museums I had always been interested in the arts and history, and had volunteered at Spike Island amongst other things. My interest in the arts led me to do an Art History BA with the Open University as a mature student. I also completed a Foundation degree in Art and Design as a mature student too.

Becoming the Project Officer for the Seaton Down Hoard has been an exciting adventure and a great way to start my new life as a consultant.

Best part of my job

I enjoy my job for lots of reasons but especially the way we have fun with the collections, and I get to share this with children. Working with just one particular collection of Roman coins allows me to get really interested in a precise moment in time and a particular place. I enjoy reading Tom Cadbury’s coin of the month for this reason. Exploring all the possible stories, people and places that are related to the coins is great, and being able to share them with the people of East Devon is really nourishing.

What I like most about RAMM

It’s great to work with such professional, creative and interesting people. I think we create a great service for people and the Roman Roadshows have been a pleasure to create and share. I enjoy the way the museum reveals so many thoughts and ideas in different ways. There’s always something new happening and something to learn! It’s a very dynamic place to work.

A funny thing that happened

I’ve done about 15 Roadshows with about 1200 children in the last few months, and have started to get lots of letters of thanks, including some that are flattering, entertaining and generous. Children are generally all of these things. I’ve also had a student shout ‘I love you’ when we asked for feedback after one particular day in school. Darius (a Roman re-enactor) and I felt very flattered!
