I have worked in the charity sector for fourteen years.  Administration was my first job role, however, throughout the years I have been involved with many different projects, job roles and have met some amazing individuals.  During my first few years in the Sector, I was involved in an employment programme that gave young people a chance to experience the working environment and move on in life.  Seeing the positive impact on young people was rewarding.  I have gone full circle in my career and I am now back working with young people and enjoying every minute of it!

I joined ProjectScotland in March 2017 as Youth Engagement Manager in Glasgow. I lived and worked here ten years ago and I love being back in this incredible city. I have spent many years supporting young people, mainly within a social work setting. However, my dream was to work within the charity sector and I feel very privileged to be a part of the ProjectScotland team.

I have the exciting role of helping young people find amazing volunteering opportunities with our equally amazing charity partners. I continue to be amazed by the commitment, talent and passion of young people throughout Glasgow and I can’t imagine a more worthwhile job than the one I have now.

When I am not working, I spend ALL my time running after my two mischievous twin boys. As a family, we love watching Toy Story (over and over again) exploring and going on adventures.
