Meet the Team

Elizabeth Owens

I have been employed by Bright Horizons for over 11 years where I have gained experience working in a number of our nurseries in various roles.  I have recently become the manager at RBS Nursery. Before starting my position as manager here I have been in a field manager position supporting a number of our nurseries.  Prior to this the most recent position, which I held for 3 years, was as nursery manager for one of our clients in Glasgow. Previously, I spent 4 years working as deputy manager at our Elsie Inglis nursery in Edinburgh and started my career with Bright Horizons as a Senior Practitioner at another of our client nurseries where I gained significant experience.

I have completed my BA in Childhood Studies and enjoy opportunities available to spend time engaged with the children in the nursery and in developing relationships with families. I continue to support RBS children, families and working with the team.

When not working I love to spend time with my family and my niece and nephews.  I spend time with my fiancé; we enjoy visiting new places and going to the theatre.
