 At Young Scot we have an amazing team who show their commitment to
the young people we serve every single day.

 What is your current role within the company?

Chief Executive of Young Scot

 What is your background prior to working for this company/setting up your company?

I began my career in newspaper journalism, before moving to the voluntary sector and then specialising in working with young people – mainly because I was so inspired by their passion and desire to make the world a better place.

What makes your company and/or your role stand out?

At Young Scot we have an amazing team who show their commitment to the young people we serve every single day. It’s a privilege and a joy to work with them and to work for young people.

What is your area of expertise/inspiration?

I’m inspired by other people, from all walks of life. I’m definitely an ideas person, who likes to make things happen – but with and for others and to create positive change.

What are your plans for the future?

To continue to do all I can to play my part in making Scotland the best place in the world to grow up.

What inspires or motivates you?

Apart from young people? Being out in nature with my camera – I love spending time in wild places when I can.
