Julie brings over 13 years of experience as a primary school teacher to her role as Project Manager for SES.
Prior to that, she worked with a number of small business start-ups and was inspired by their creativity and resilience.
Julie is passionate about the use of enterprise education to enhance learning and teaching, and enjoys collaborating with practitioners to support the delivery of the curriculum through quality enterprise initiatives.
In the past, she has: tracked elephants for 20 days in Namibia; been a goat-farmer outside Brisbane; sold magic wands on the boardwalk in Maryland; and played ice hockey for the local women’s team in Paisley. She’s not sure what’s next on her bucket list!
Lynsey developed an interest in education while completing her MSc in Publishing at Edinburgh Napier, where she focused her work on how young children’s reading ability and engagement has changed in digital age.
Having a background writing content for various online publications, Lynsey brought this interest in online content creation to the team and originally joined us as our Digital Communications Intern at Scotland’s Enterprising Schools!
She has since moved on to the Programme Executive role.
Outside of working with us, Lynsey loves nothing more nothing more than cuddling up with her dogs Archie and Clyde - preferably with a good book or the latest-binge worthy tv show!
In the future, she dreams of working in either children’s or educational publishing.
