Business Analyst | Aberdeenshire Council

After gaining a Master’s in Criminology I spent several years in violence reduction, focusing on Violence against women and Human trafficking before working as a policy specialist with the Scottish Legal Aid Board.

A career change took me into Business Analysis with Aberdeenshire Council in 2013 and I have loved every minute!

I always try to push myself and I undertook an invaluable opportunity to act up as manager of my team for 9 months, during this time I also passed the BCS Diploma in Business Analysis.

I believe there is a solution for every problem, I try to tackle challenges with positivity and good humour.  It’s so important to have faith in yourself and be Brave.

I am a Director of my local village Development Trust & have been part of the organising team for the Aberdeen & Shire Crohn’s & Colitis UK branch for 3 years.
