KAT PEARSON // TRUSTEE

Kat recently completed a Masters in Conservation of the Historic Environment at Birmingham City University. She became involved with MRB because she wrote her first year assignment about the history of the Baths, their condition and the options for the future. She originally studied an MA in Museum Studies at the University of Leicester and has experience of working in the heritage sector including volunteer management. She worked for 6 years at the University of Birmingham in various administration roles including some which involved line management. She is currently working in the archive of the Camping and Caravanning Club to create an inventory and think about the future of the collection. Kathryn is also a committee member of Birmingham Bike Polo.

Moseley Road Baths is important to me as an example of how historic buildings are special places which can bring people together, and in doing so can continue to be relevant and useful to their communities. Kat Pearson.
