Growing up in Glasgow (born in Bellshill Hospital), Fiona was surrounded by libraries and museums. After graduating from Newcastle Polytechnic with a degree in Librarianship she jumped at the opportunity to spend a year working for the Scottish Maritime Museum at the world famous Denny Ship Model Experiment Tank in Dumbarton.
Three years as a school librarian followed before a career beckoned at Newcastle College, where eventually Fiona was Head of Library Services for 4 years.
Becoming freelance in 2004 gave Fiona the opportunity to pursue her passions. Museums, information literacy, collections have always been passions. Others such as systems theory, action research have joined the list following her Masters in Library Management from Aberystwyth.
…and if you can stop her talking about information test her out on Highland Railway history, Freddie Grubb tandems and tea shops.
