Gil is a valued peer with passion and understanding for the benefits of workplace well-being. I was pleased to have opportunity to work directly with her on Robert Gordon University’s Healthy University initiative and to give input to her students on occasion. I have found her a great colleague to work with!

Gil always delivers, building first class connections with organisations in many sectors.  She understands how health is protected and improved in the various settings in which we live out our daily lives – the workplace, health and education organisations, local communities, and through social media – and understands how to bring about beneficial change by working with the grain, not against it.

Gil has been both a teacher and mentor for several topics throughout my Health Promotion MSc.  Gil initially struck me as an incredibly bubbly tutor, and after the years I can honestly say this didn’t change! She is very professional, approachable, and a source of great knowledge. With her help I have been able to complete my studies, achieving top grades, whilst juggling shift work and family life
