Her expertise and skills range from genealogy and family histories; to house histories, property and land use. An experienced business researcher, Steph has a particular interest and focus on corporate histories, often working with clients to tell their stories in the run up to key anniversaries or centenary celebrations. Steph has also provided research for local heritage organisations, exhibitions and heritage projects across London; and she is part of the volunteer team at Merton Local Heritage Services. She has many years’ experience creating and commissioning a variety of end products including websites, books, reports and interactive presentations. Steph has an MA (Oxon) in Modern History from Jesus College, Oxford and a Masters Degree in Design Studies from Central St Martins College of Art & Design. She is also a Governor at a primary school in Wimbledon where she lives.
