Nic joined Scottish Land & Estates in April 2022. Growing up on a farm in Uplawmoor, East Renfrewshire, Nic has always had a love for the countryside, animals, and farming.
Following on from school she spent many years working across multiple industries including landscaping, construction, and property, progressing with each opportunity. Nic then moved to Canada with her husband and made the move into Veterinary Medicine, combining her love of science, medicine, animals, and management skills as Practice Manager for a large clinic.
After almost three years abroad, she returned home to Scotland and wanted to go back to her roots and work within a role that allowed her to spend time in rural areas and continue in her career progression. Nic has a passion for farm to fork, local produce and keeping the countryside beautiful and this will help to translate into her role as Regional Support Officer to help rural Scotland thrive!
If you were a Scottish animal, which would you be and why?
I’d be a Highland Cow. I’m hardy, low-maintenance and have unruly hair.
What do few people know about you?
I’m an extroverted, introvert. I love meeting new people and adventures, but I love my own company with a good book or puzzle.
Which three words best describe your outlook on life?
Thrive. Organised. Driven.
Where would you live if not Scotland?
It would have to be a quiet ranch in Montana, USA. The John Deere kit out there is so impressive!
