Your Life is delighted to welcome its newest ambassador Kathryn Tyler, co-founder of Digital Mums to the team. Digital Mums is the award-winning business that trains mums to be social media managers and then matches them to businesses who need their help.
Kathryn studied Maths and Science A levels before graduating from Birmingham University with a degree in Genetics. After spells working in medical R&D helping develop HIV vaccines and diagnostic tools for coeliacs, Kathryn founded Digital Mums. Since then the company has grown at a rapid pace, receiving significant Venture capital funding and a series of accolades, including being named one of 2014’s NESTA New Business Radicals. Commenting on her new role with Your Life Kathryn says: “There’s a real misconception about Maths and Science subjects. People associate them with a narrow scope of lab jobs but in reality, the analytical and critical skills they teach you are important in any job, particularly running a business”.
According to Toby Hicks, Communications Director: “We are delighted to have someone with Kathryn’s credentials and background supporting our campaign. Digital Mums is a great example of the sort of entrepreneurial business many young people might strive to run and she is a great example of where studying Maths and Science can take you.”
