For seven years before that she was head of fine art at National Museum Wales in Cardiff.
After beginning her career at the National Portrait Gallery in London, she has worked at galleries across the country, including the Holburne Museum in Bath.
She said: 'I feel honoured and excited to be taking up my new role at the Parsonage in February, and returning to work in the beautiful county of West Yorkshire.
"As a lifelong Bronte enthusiast I could not be starting at a better time, with refurbishment of the Parsonage Museum coming up in early 2013 and planning for the bicentenary celebrations of Charlotte Bronte's birth in 2016."
