Education Manager - East

Education Manager - East

I joined the Academy in October 2021. Prior to that, I worked for Junior Award Scheme for Schools (JASS) and the Police.

I am the Education Manager for the East of Scotland. My role involves overseeing the development and implementation of the Social Enterprise in Schools programme. I am absolutely delighted to have been given the opportunity to come and work with the Social Enterprise Academy. The programme is a wonderful, transformational learning programme that offers so many benefits to young people. I am proud to play a small part in helping the development of young people.

Outside of work, I enjoy being a wife and mum, working with people with additional support needs, volunteering with Riding for Disabled, walking my dog and doing anything that’s creative.
