Programme Officer

Programme Officer

Speechmarks PlumI joined the Academy in February 2018 as the International Learning Administrator before moving into the Programme Officer role. I look after the programmes that we deliver as part of the Just Enterprise Consortium. 

I am originally from the North East of Scotland but I have lived in Bermuda, Sweden and Singapore before relocating to Edinburgh with my family in 2016.

I have worked in a number of administrative roles as well as several voluntary positions during my time overseas. Having taken a career break to raise my children I completed a women returners programme in 2017 before taking up my post at the Academy.

In my free time, I love cooking, reading and trips to the cinema.  My time in south-east Asia has given me a lifelong love of exploring new countries and cultures and I am always on the lookout for THE perfect beach.
