About Nesta

Nesta is an innovation foundation. For us, innovation means turning bold ideas into reality and changing lives for the better. We use our expertise, skills and funding in areas where there are big challenges facing society.

Angela is Head of Nesta Scotland.

Before Nesta, she worked in senior leadership roles within the third sector for over ten years with a particular focus on health, sustainability, food systems and the prevention agenda. Prior to that, she worked as a journalist, producer and director making programmes and documentaries for BBC and Channel 4. 

Outside of work, you’ll find Angela either reading, running or dreaming up creative projects that get started but are often never finished.  She is Vice Chair of the Board of Directors for environmental charity FEL and a member of the court at the University of West of Scotland.
