Tina is a native of Co. Waterford and a graduate of NUI Cork.   She is a Geologist BSc, Heritage Specialist for the Heritage In Schools scheme, a Goldsmith and Gemmologist FGA and has been leading GI fieldtrips for many years.

During her eight years as geologist with the Copper Coast Geopark she built up a successful Education and Activities Programme, introducing our natural, cultural, and built heritage to the public, achieved through fieldtrips, lectures, family events, workshops and school visits. Work she now continues independently and through the ‘Heritage in Schools Scheme’.

To date, she successfully combines her work in the jewellery profession and her work as an geologist which is mainly involved in education.  Tina’s artistic and scientific backgrounds are a great asset to her work in schools’ education and in increasing public understanding of Earth Science
