I was appointed to the Board in 2017 for a 3 year term. I qualified as a solicitor over 20 years ago, and have worked in both the public and private sectors. I’ve spent most of my career in Scotland, but I also worked for a year in the South Pacific with Voluntary Service Overseas as a legal aid solicitor, and for 2 years in New Zealand with a commercial law firm. I am now Information Governance Manager for a local council.
I live just outside Edinburgh and have three young sons, who have curtailed my wanderlust, but taken me on a whole new adventure.
Growing up in Aberdeen, I was a Brownie, Guide and Ranger. My sons are now Beavers and Cubs. I’m passionate about the benefits of Scouting, committed to volunteering, and I like a challenge. I hope my pragmatic approach and experience in contracts, procurement and data protection will be of real use to the Board and the Business Committee.
