Kirsten McTighe

Kirsten studied Marketing & Communication at Glasgow Caledonian University, working in public relations and third sector roles before moving to the publishing and broadcasting industries. She subsequently returned to the third sector, undertaking fundraising, marketing and communications roles for numerous charities and non-profits.

Kirsten said: “I’m delighted to have joined the dedicated team at Epilepsy Scotland. With 58,000 people across Scotland living with an epilepsy diagnosis, the need for our services continues to increase, and so too does the need for vital funds.

This is an exciting year for Epilepsy Scotland as it celebrates its 70th anniversary, which we’re marking with our 70th Anniversary Ball in October. I’m excited by the opportunity play my part in helping the organisation continue to grow and develop the vital support and training services it provides.”
