Julia has worked extensively in development roles for Libraries and Museum Services (Bournemouth Borough Council) as well as in marketing and communication roles (including digital development) for the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Team (Dorset and East Devon Councils).
She has been involved with numerous local projects and events to date including The Dorset Coast Digital Archive, Bournemouth Library PFI and along the Jurassic Coast – the 2012 Summer Olympic Games, festivals including the Fossil Festival and Camp Bestival, and the delivery of a training scheme and associated events for local businesses. Internationally, Julia has worked with and supported European World Heritage colleagues from Germany, and has presented both at the inauguration of the Wadden Sea World Heritage Site and to other European countries at the International Academy for Nature Conservation on the Isle of Vilm in the Baltic Sea.
She has engaged with audiences both on a local and international scale, with the aim of making key services and the overall ‘offer’ within cultural organisations and venues, available and accessible to all.
Her BSc (Hons) degree in Heritage Conservation (Bournemouth University) has afforded her a solid understanding of conservation in the Heritage sector – which she continues to apply in her current roles here at MoDiP, AUB, in both museum engagement and digital communications.
