Born in Canada, Jennie Pitceathly has lived and worked in the North West of England since 2002. From heritage and culture roles in Cheshire and Manchester; to original architect of Pennine Lancashire Museums where she established a compelling vision for attractions in one of the country’s most economically deprived areas. In 2016, Jennie settled in the Lake District to reinvigorate the visitor experience at Blackwell the Arts & Crafts House (which won Cumbria Tourism Culture & Heritage Experience Award 2018) and plan the inaugural schools and families programme for Windermere Jetty Museum.
Since re-establishing her freelance business in 2018, Jennie has secured local, regional and national contracts with Norman Nicholson CIC, Wordsworth Grasmere, Museum Development North West, Museum Development South West, Mountain Heritage Trust and Museum Development UK.
As a freelancer, Jennie has worked with museum and heritage organisations to develop strategic plans, write funding applications, carry out research and feasibility studies, evaluate projects, facilitate visioning workshops and deliver training programmes.
