I have always been interested in history and, having grown up on a farm, I also enjoy a more hands-on-approach. This has not only lead to my love for archaeology but also the enjoyment of day to day problem solving that comes with being a heritage consultant.
Working as a heritage consultant provides me with opportunities to engage with various stakeholders on a number of interesting sites to help manage our social and cultural heritage. I have had the privilege to excavate at sites listed on the World Heritage List, and my love of archaeology has also seen me spend my holidays excavating in Italy and the UK.
My artefacts are sheep tags from my family farm in Western Australia where I grew up and where my family still lives. Life on the farm has influenced who I am today.
