I have over 16 years in the museum and heritage sector. I am an experienced museum specialist and brings with a wealth of knowledge, having curated and managed the Pump House Steam Museum, MacLachlan Woodworking Museum, and the City of Kingston Civic Collection in Kingston, Ontario. With many years of experience in exhibit development, museum management, physical plant management, educational program development, collections management and project management, I believe there is a solution to any challenge.
As Team Lead of Museum Services with LETOURNEAU HERITAGE CONSULTING INC, I have been involved in a variety of projects including exhibit design, interpretational planning, research and project management. Some of my heritage work includes working with the team on Conservation Planning, Heritage Impact Assessments, Cultural Heritage Evaluation Reports, and site assessments.
I have a broad range of experience working within both municipal and the not-for profit museums with a large portion of my experience being a Curator with the Cultural Services Department of the City of Kingston. As Course director of the OMA‘s Museums in Historic Buildings (Facilities Management) I bring my experience and knowledge to emerging and developing museum professionals. Some key projects include the restoration of the Spirit of Sir John A. Locomotive and the redevelopment of the Pump House Steam Museum into one of the premier museums in Kingston. I was also formerly the Museum Manager of the Marine Museum of the Great Lakes.
