Making good ideas happen locally.
I have a practical, detailed knowledge of developing community-based projects from initial idea to successful delivery.
I'm passionate about bringing good people and good ideas together, and have a practical mindset that helps new ideas get off the ground.

"Working with Kathryn is always fantastic. She listens to our brief and responds with inspiring and energetic talks which are perfectly suited to our audiences. A complete professional we are consistently impressed with her work with us. We look forward to continuing to work with Kathryn in the future".
Mo Odling, Eden Project Communities
In 2017, I founded Stirling Soup, a community-led crowdfunding event that was shortlisted for a Scottish Charity Award.
"Kathryn managed to quickly and, seemingly effortlessly, pull together a fantastic group of volunteers and businesses to create a democratic community fundraising movement in Stirling. Kathryn's can do attitude and bright, friendly personality are infectious. It was a true pleasure to volunteer for her. She has inspired me to go on and try new things that I probably would never have done if I hadn't known her".
