Lindsay is the Ascend Senior Administrator in the Training Team.  Her focus is looking after the resources for Ministers, including; Study Leave, Post Graduate Fund, Alexander J MacLeod Gaelic Fund, First Five Years CMD, The ASCEND Website and monthly E-News.

Lindsay has a BA in Stage Management from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and she worked for many years freelance in Scottish touring theatre before settling in Edinburgh.  Since then the common thread of her work has been as the central point of contact for information, events, planning, logistics and people.  Working in the Ascend Team is perfect as it allows her to speak with ministers and assist them with funding continuing development and planning, feel free to call Lindsay to chat about what resources are available to you. Her love of events ensures a full events calendar on the Ascend website.

Outside of work Lindsay and her husband strive to be environmentally considerate and love days out on their electric bikes (her first bike since primary school!) She is a lifelong vegetarian and loves hosting get togethers for friends and family.
