RMS bids a fond farewell to Events Organiser Kat Driscoll

Popular staff member leaves Society to pursue teaching career

The RMS team recently said a warm goodbye to Events Organiser Kat Driscoll, who is leaving to pursue her ambition to become a primary school teacher.

She was joined by RMS colleagues for a 'farewell' lunch last week, and was presented with a bouquet of flowers. The event was also an opportunity to wish RMS Events Director Tor Masters (pictured right) a very happy birthday!

Kat says goodbye


Kat has worked on some of the biggest RMS events since joining the Society just over two years ago. She was instrumental in delivering the successful Microscopy and Microanalysis in Geological and Archaeological Sciences meeting last autumn, and UK Light Microscopy Facilities Meeting (LMFM) 2022 in January.

Kat will begin a PGCE course at Exeter University this September, and will be working as a Teaching Assistant to gain further experience over the next few months.

RMS Chief Executive Allison Winton said: “Kat has been a really popular member of the team and her positive attitude has rubbed off on us all. We will all miss her greatly, but it’s fantastic that she is pursuing her teaching ambitions, and we wish her the very best of luck in her future career.”
