Her six previous years of professional training have equipped her with a great knowledge of various digital technologies, new media, and museology concepts.

She was tasked with selecting exhibits and writing the school trip notes for the new exhibition, Make Room — the sixth of a series of yearlong displays. The displays used contemporary works from The New Art Gallery Walsall’s Permanent Collections to make interventions within the Garman Ryan Collection’s themed rooms. Her first master’s thesis investigated how the use of mobile phones affected the experience when visiting museums and galleries.
