I am a Consultant in the SAC Consulting Food & Enterprise team. I joined SAC Consulting in 2018 following two years working in the fresh produce sector.

I specialise in farm diversification, agri-tourism, and added value food & drink, completing a variety of projects for both public and private clients. I am interested in promoting rural tourism and diversification enterprises to add value to farming and rural businesses. I want to encourage the public to enjoy our beautiful countryside, and promote the wonderful range of food & drink products and businesses across Scotland.

Day-to-day, I carry out market research and feasibility studies for clients and support workshops and event delivery with colleagues across Scotland.

I am a former honours student studying Rural Business Management (Agri-Food) at SRUC, and now occasionally teach students across many SRUC campuses as a guest lecturer. This is a small part of my job which I really enjoy, as I want to inspire and encourage young people in the agricultural and rural sectors.

I am from a farming background and have a small family farm on the outskirts of Perth. When I am not working or busy on the farm, you’ll find me out running, cycling, at the gym, or playing my fiddle in the Cragganmore Ceilidh Band.
