Meet the team

The story so far...

When Glasgow girl Kylie returned to her old stomping grounds of Edinburgh in 2014, she realised that a lot had changed in the two decades since she graduated from Uni. Kylie was a new mum with few friends still living in the Capital. This didn’t phase her too much, however it did mean there was no one to ask for the important life questions, like where to find a good hairdresser! And so it was that, on a whim and with barely a thought to the name, Kylie set up Edinburgh Gossip Girls on Facebook, encouraging anyone she came into contact with to join the group, and spread the word.

Fast forward 9 years and we are now a team of 5 eggs... Meet the team below captured by Rachel Hein Photography

Meet the team

Kylie - egg head

Glasgow girl gone East side (and now East Coast side), Kylie’s love of events, social media, marketing and connecting women has played out well, who knew this could be a full time gig! A saleswoman from the age of 10 (tablet and macaroon in the school playground, 5p commission per bar) and a Dad who was the king of business pivoting) – it was written in the stars that Kylie would launch her own business, one built on sales chat/relationship building and finding the gap. A delightful job to have; connecting, supporting and celebrating women, not only on-line but in real life too, at egg & co-working, Scotland’s first co-working space for women. Dad would be proud.

Can often be found; sea swimming, eating poppets, drinking M&S canned cocktails, booking another holiday.

Alex - egg marketing

Alex is a country bumpkin at heart with a Batchelors degree in Biology, yet she found her way to the heart of Edinburgh and is now the egg Marketeer. When she’s not running around town capturing and scheduling eggy content, you can find her doing some ‘window shopping’, belting out Spanish tunes in the car or treating herself to another meal out - anywhere but the gym.

Can often be found; Doing a lap of Inverleith Park, starting and not finishing a new hobby, binge reading ice hockey romances or losing pub quizzes.

Nicky – egg content

Edinburgh born and bred, Nicky is a girl about town and former magazine editor with over 18 years’ experience in the media industry. A self-confessed foodie, fashion and beauty aficionado who loves a weekend getaway (don’t we all!), when Nicky’s not working on newsletters or web articles, she’s checking out the latest launches in town - or planning family days out!

Can often be found; shopping, eating out, drinking wine or running around after her two little kids and crazy chocolate lab!

Elaina - egg social

Elaina joins us from Edinburgh Napier University where she is in her third year of studies and helps with all things egg social. During lockdown Elaina spent a lot of time on social media (who didn’t?) and fell in love with all things digital marketing! When Elaina’s isn’t snapping 500 pics for Instagram you will probably find her at Cramond beach walking her two pooches!

Can often be found; Getting her nails done, creating Reels & Tik Toks, exploring new places, obsessing over the latest beauty trends and trying popular dinner spots!
