Katey Watson

Archivist

I joined the BC Archives in 2017. My focus is on exhibitions and displays and providing support for outreach activities. I became interested in archives after volunteering at the Markham Museum and went on to earn my master’s degree in Archives and Records Management from the University of Toronto. After graduation, I continued to work in archives at the Markham Museum then subsequently at the Toronto Star Archives and the Girl Guides of Canada, Ontario Council. I’ve worked on exhibitions, outreach, digitization projects, and developing and implementing procedures for managing archival collections and records management initiatives. I am very excited to be a part of the BC Archives team where I am able to work with such a diversity of records and engage the public with archival materials.
