Jennie is a highly knowledgeable, creative and reliable museum professional. As a consultant, I always valued her as a colleague and knew that she would have a positive and lasting impact on the organisations we worked with.
– Emma Chaplin, Director, Association of Independent Museums
Jennie is a joy to work with being approachable, positive and empathetic as well as hugely experienced in the museums and heritage sector having worked with a wide range of museums of all types and sizes. Coupled with her strategic thinking, Jennie has also proved a very effective facilitator for MDUK activities and events.
– Claire Browne, chair, Museum Development UK
Jennie brought detailed knowledge, imagination, commitment and enthusiasm to our project. We wanted to set up a museum within the home of the Cumbrian poet Norman Nicholson but had little idea as to how to design or equip it. Jennie filled in all the blanks, and more. She also provided valuable input to our business plan, enabling us to put a much more effective document in front of prospective funders.
– Charlie Lambert, chair, Norman Nicholson House CIC
Jennie was the project manager for a NLHF ‘Resilience Project’ with Mountain Heritage Trust. She was meticulous throughout the project and helped the Trust formulate development plans in a clear and concise way to support growth and moving the Trust forward into the 21st century.
– Terry Tasker, chair, Mountain Heritage Trust
Jennie's professionalism and commitment to projects means she delivers high quality work on time. Her honesty, perception and great communication skills were invaluable to the delivery of our organisational resilience programme working with six very different museums.

Jennie is an excellent facilitator; her ability to provoke healthy discussion and debate among our Trustees has given the organisation a refreshed vitality and a more focused future strategy. Jennie’s workshops are well-planned, creative and productive and draw from her wealth of experience in the heritage and creative arts sectors.
– Mel Cookson-Carter, Heritage Development Officer, North Craven Building Preservation Trust
We worked with Jennie on a collection of heritage projects in Pennine Lancashire between 2010 and 2013, and found her thoughtful, flexible, hard-working and always able to deliver on time. She makes a very good team member.
