Our Team

We’re a friendly bunch here at FYF, with just 5 full-time staff members and 6 part-timers, each as dedicated as the last and undertaking many more hours than they’re paid for. Read on to find out who we are and what we do.

Cor Hutton

Cor lost her hands and feet to sepsis back in 2013 and set up our charity to offer peer support to amputees in all stages of their life and journey. She can be found spreading the word about FYF and visiting new Troopers. Cor also meets with health, education and NHS personnel, and is a motivational speaker. Despite being a triathlete and world record holder, when it comes to making tea or coffee she’s quick to play the ‘amputee’ card…

Nicola Booth

Nic keeps everything running at Finding Your Feet – the team regularly receive emails from her at 4 am… She’s in charge of strategic planning, oversees the day-to-day running of our charity and is the point of contact for initial enquiries. The only time she stops working is to have a laughing fit at her favourite joke: “What’s Cor short for?  Cos she’s got no legs!”

Kerr Ferguson

Kerr handles the marketing, PR and design for the charity. He spends a lot of his time photographing and videoing the amputees we work with and telling their inspirational stories. Despite almost always being dressed in grey, he’s actually a very cheery person… mostly.  He also wrote these bios so the rest of the team currently aren’t speaking to him. You can clearly see him laughing at his own jokes in that picture.

Nikki Etheridge

Nikki began volunteering with Finding Your Feet when she lost her leg below the knee, but she has since grown to be an invaluable member of staff. She co-ordinates all of our clubs, fundraisers and volunteers, making sure amputees are getting access to a range of amazing activities and support.  She loves Daim bars but she won’t share them with anyone, not even Meg.  Meg is her leg. Yeah she named her prosthetic leg – what’s strange about that?

Lesley Lawrie

Les is a below-knee amputee who volunteered for the charity before coming onboard in 2017. She’s based in Fife, but she coordinates our Dundee, Fife, Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Inverness and Leeds Troopers and Clubs as well! She’s also the one that keeps our website all shiny and up to date. When she’s not working on that, she’s kept busy having to explain her Fife slang to the rest of the group. Who is this Ken she always speaks of?

Paul Johnson

After benefitting from Finding Your Feet’s support, Paul officially joined the team in 2018. He’s a double above knee amputee and uses his experience to talk at schools, business and events. When he’s not out spreading the word, he’s one half of the FYF marketing department, handling social media and design. He’s right into his tunes and doesn’t hide the fact that he thinks the songs that the rest of us like are terrible even though it’s widely agreed he has the worst taste in music…

Fiona Conway

The fantastic Fiona joined Finding Your Feet in January 2019. She was over shadowed a touch considering she started the day before Cor received a landmark double hand transplant which will go down in history. Now she’s making her mark handling business development and finances. We have big plans over the next five years and Fi will be making sure they’re feasible… or should we say Fi-sable?! Get it?! Do you?!

Eilish McNaught

Eilish came on board on an internship in 2019, right before the Covid pandemic hit – which meant we barely had a chance to say hi before we said goodbye. Thankfully we managed to bring her back as part of the team in 2021 to help with fundraising events and admin. She’s already planning some brilliant fundraisers for the future, so get ready to be roped in to them… In other news, she’s a bit obsessed with Harry Potter. She’s one of those people who are convinced they are a Gryffindor. We don’t have the heart to tell her she’s a classic Hufflepuff.

Dawn Hogg

Dawn is our Wellbeing Officer and came on board in 2021 to fulfil that much needed support role alongside our Counsellors.  Dawn is also our main Safeguarding contact and has been working in emotional support roles for over 20 years now which makes her a perfect addition to the team. She brings brilliant ideas to the table about new ways to provide support for the FYF Troopers. We’re already seeing how lucky we are to have her but we can’t let her know she’s too good for us… shhhh!

Joan-Anne Quinn

Joan-Anne joined the FYF team towards the end of 2021 as our Volunteer Co-ordinator, supporting our Troopers and helping around the FYF Charity Hub. She’s been volunteering with us for years so she’s the best person for the job! On top of her role with us, she’s always volunteering, supporting and helping people in her spare time. One might say she’s almost too kind… we’ll be keeping an eye on this one…

Nico Cucaro

Nico came on board with the FYF team at the start of 2022, just as we opened our FYF Charity Hub. The Charity Hub is always buzzing with activity, and he makes sure that rooms are ready for visitors and everybody feels right at home.  Nico is the general handy-man that every good workplace needs – especially us since we’re all hopeless in that regard!

Dennis The Dog

Dennis has three legs. It doesn’t stop him from running, jumping, swimming or just generally being the best thing ever, which is why he is the official FYF mascot! Woof!
