Jen Cuadrado

Head of Fundraising

We wanted to find out more about Jen, so we sent her these questions and this is what she had to say…

  1. Many of the people that Joseph Wright painted chose to be depicted with an object that tells us something about them as a person. What object would you choose and why?
    My backpack. I love the sense of freedom that comes with heading off to explore another part of the world. Josh and I made great memories over the years and I can’t wait to have similar adventures with my pre-schooler.
  2. If you could be any animal from the Nature Gallery, which would you be and why?
    The hare, as I always seem to be dashing through life.
  3. What makes you happy?
    Spending time with my boys, travelling and country walks are three of my great pleasures in life.
  4. What do you love to do in your spare time? (Aside from working at the museum, obviously)
    I love to run and eat great food (I mean who doesn’t!) and also particularly enjoy hanging out with the Wednesday gang – a crazy bunch of pre schoolers and their parents who keep me sane and drive me insane in equal measure. My little nephews bring equal levels of craziness to my life.
