Our Staff

Liz Power, Director

Liz has been Director of LMWS since October 2018, where she looks after the strategic direction of the Museum, fundraising, managing the team and the all-important budgets, but she can be easily distracted to play with bubbles and chat to all our visitors and community members. Away from the Museum, she looks after her three children, chairs a Young Peoples Charity, tries to run, and plays the baritone horn badly!


Gemma Cante, Engagement Coordinator

Gemma joined the Museum in August 2018 and has loved getting to know our neighbours and visitors, as well as making new friends in the local community. She ran the schools, family and community programmes until spring 2021 when she went on maternity leave and left them in Emma’s wonderfully capable hands. She now primarily oversees community engagement and loves nothing more than enthusiastically welcoming new people through the doors.


Emma Canterbury, Engagement Coordinator

Emma joined the Museum in April 2021. She can often be found creating fun activities for families, organising unforgettable school visits, or chatting to our visitors. She’s also the person behind our social media and website. When she’s not at the Museum, Emma’s often off on adventures with her son or her Scouts and Explorers.


Joanna Walsh, Front of House Coordinator 

Joanna is our fantastic Front of House Coordinator. She looks after the duty manager team, the visitor welcome volunteers, and the Museum shop. Outside of the Museum, she can often be found at the cinema or playing badminton.


Sjoera Snijder-Sahuleka, Volunteer Coordinator 

Sjoera is our Volunteer Coordinator, and she manages and supports our wonderful team of volunteers. She likes to keep herself mentally and physically fit with yoga and meditation- she is a qualified yoga teacher. Sjoera also loves to read, is quite crafty and is a huge NFL-fan.


Veronica Tuke, Finance Manager

Veronica looks after the Museum’s finances. 


Duty Manager

Matthew, Giovanna and Peter are our fantastic team of Duty Managers. They run the museum on weekends and school holidays, give our visitors a warm and friendly welcome, and help to make sure everyone enjoys their visit.


Kate, Kayleigh and Judy are our wonderful Learning Facilitators. They work with Emma to provide schools with unforgettable visits and fun school holiday activities.

Rhiannon is our STEAM Teens Learning Producer. She is responsible for our exciting, new STEAM Teens club which will provide fun, hands on STEM activities for young people.

Tom is our Steam Team Programme Coordinator. He leads our steam team project to get young people in Hounslow involved in volunteering.

Melissa is our Freelance Project Manager. She is leading on the exciting project to create a wild place space in the Museum garden.

Wicksteed, Museum Cat

Wicksteed is the retired Museum Cat. He now lives with Joanna and likes playing with his laser pointer and sleeping on his blanket.
