Her background covers many skills including visitor research and exhibition evaluation, project management, and graphic and spatial design, illustration, hand embroidery, book and manuscript conservation, and much more!

 

Recently, Strachan took the opportunity of having spare time to explore the financial side of non-profit with an online grant writing class.

She is currently seeking freelance, and part-time opportunities, but is open to the right full-time position.

She assisted with cataloguing artworks within the database and online shop, among various other responsibilities.
