Katya is the Marketing, Communications and Support Officer for Scottish Mentoring Network. She is responsible for the day to day running of Scottish Mentoring Network as well as leading on the Marketing and Communications tasks, and provides support to the rest of the SMN team. She enjoys working with the team to design new and innovative marketing materials and promoting SMN at variety of events.
Katya’s background lies in theatre studies, which she studied at the University of Glasgow. During her time there, she developed a keen interest in Events Management, which led on to a variety of volunteering opportunities. This sparked her passion for helping others, and after a brief period working in retail, Katya became the Office and Volunteer Manager at the Youth Community Support Agency. During her time there, she gained experience and training in managing volunteers, youth work, office management, and campaigning. She brings these skills with her to Scottish Mentoring Network, and is passionate about being able to support the SMN’s member organisations, and learning about mentoring in Scotland.
Katya enjoys keeping fit and trying out new forms of exercise, socialising with friends and travelling as often as she can.
