I have always had an interest in historic buildings, all forms of architecture and art history which I studied at A level. I did a degree in Geography and then went to study for a Masters Degree in the School of Architecture at Manchester University on a course which was called “Conservation, Vernacular and Historic Studies” from 1988-90. I worked in Liverpool for two years and then moved to Pembrokeshire to work for the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park as their Building Conservation Officer in 1992.
Since the beginning of 2000 I have been working as a Historic Building Consultant with and in collaboration with Architects, Project Teams and Charities to deliver restoration projects.
I am a member of the Institute of Historic Building Conservation and am working towards becoming a member of the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors this autumn.
