Lynsey studied English at the University of Stirling and graduated with honours in 2014. Since then she’s worked in different retail positions, in a contact centre, and even moved to Prague to teach English to Czech students for a year. Lynsey returned to complete a MSc in Publishing at Edinburgh Napier University, which she was delighted to graduate with in 2017.

Lynsey discovered an interest in education when completing her dissertation, which focused on how young children’s reading ability and engagement has changed in digital age. While studying she also took up an intern position at Electrans, writing content all about the world of electric transportation and she’s now bringing this interest in online content creation to the Digital Communications Intern position at Scotland’s Enterprising Schools!

Outside of working with us, Lynsey loves nothing more than cuddling up with her dog Clyde and either a good book or the latest binge-worthy tv series. In the future, she dreams of working in either children’s or educational publishing.
