Susie Sandford

My background stems from a long history in retail management until recently when I undertook a degree in Conservation at Cardiff University, graduating in July with first class honours.

During my time at Cardiff I have volunteered at National Museum of Wales, the Horniman Museum, Museum of Byzantium Culture in Thessaloniki in Greece and undertaken short term projects at the Cynon Valley Museum and the Aberdulais Tinworks and Waterfalls National Trust Property.

Liz Botterill

I graduated from the University of East Anglia in 2008 and since then I have worked for the National Maritime Museum, London, the Powell Cotton Museum, Kent, and the Royal Engineers Museum, Kent.

My experience includes work in visitor experience, assisting in exhibition co-ordination and more recently museum collections care, specifically audit and inventory projects.

Sara Brown

I, like Susie, graduated with first class honours in conservation from Cardiff University. Prior to this, I worked as a legal secretary for eight years.

I am experienced in designing and managing collection reorganisation projects, and worked alongside Susie at the National Trust. I am also proud to be a Zibby Garnett Scholar, having been awarded a travelling fellowship to work with the American School of Classical Studies in Athens.
