Hailing from East Kilbride and with a love and knowledge of the local landscape, Kirsten has a background in environmental management. Her specialism is in working with communities and helping them to realise the potential of heritage and environmental assets on their doorsteps. She has gained experience from all around the UK and as far away as Tanzania working in the sector, and spent time as a community officer at fellow Heritage Lottery Fund supported Landscape Partnership, Dalriada at Lochgilphead.

Wishing you the best of luck in your new role, Kirsten. We know we’re in safe hands!
