Latoya Schadel

Visitor Interpretation Officer

Head and shoulders portrait of woman.

Latoya has been an enthusiastic lover of history since the tender age of seven when she visited Elizabeth Farm for the first time, dressed as a convict-lass. Since then she has (grown up and) completed a First Class Honours in History at the University of Sydney, specialising in the Australian 'history wars' and their impact on children’s literature. For the last two years she has been a proud member of the House Museums Portfolio at Sydney Living Museums as a Visitor Interpretation Officer, and hopes to instil her love of the past in a new generation of seven year olds - and beyond!
