Sarah is responsible for supporting the Director and Administrative and Finance Officer in the day-to-day running of NHSN and its activities during the Towards 2029 project. This includes a multitude of tasks relating to membership, finances, office admin and communications.
Sarah has volunteered for NHSN for two years previous to her appointment, assisting our archivist with cataloguing and storing our collections after researching John Hancock’s bird room for her Museums Studies Masters dissertation, conducted while studying at Newcastle University. She has since volunteered in the NHSN office, helping with various administrative tasks, and stewarding our very popular Friday evening talks programme over the winter.
“I am very excited to be part of the ‘Towards 2029’ project. Through my time spent volunteering with NHSN in the archive I have learnt so much about the history of the society and its fantastic work engaging people with natural history, and I am really looking forward to contributing to that legacy. The society has a gem of a collection and I am really looking forward to sharing it with more people over the course of the project” – Sarah
