She started her career working at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew and the Natural History Museum, specifically on projects providing access to collections through digitisation. An opportunity to spend a few years working in New York City with community archives sparked a keen interest in understanding how to better support smaller archives in becoming more digitally confident and resilient.
