Lisa joined Keep Scotland Beautiful in April this year as our Cultural Heritage Canal Officer. She works with a range of groups from primary schools to historical societies helping them engage with the heritage of Scotland’s Canals. This is done through bespoke learning experiences for young people, guided walks, volunteer work parties and illustrated talks.
Before joining us, Lisa worked in a similar role with Scottish Waterways Trust. Prior to this she was the Learning and interpretation Officer with the Tay Landscape Partnership where she delivered a wide range of projects from archaeological digs, orchard planting and both digital and physical interpretation of the area.
Lisa started her career as a primary school teacher in rural Perthshire. During this time she became a Forest School teacher and was seconded to Perth and Kinross Council to develop Outdoor Learning across the authority.
Lisa has a BSc (Hons) in Psychology, Postgraduate Diplomas in Primary Teaching and 3-14 in Physical Education. She is currently studying for MSc in Environment, Heritage and Policy at the University of Stirling.
