I joined the training team in February 2021.  The focus of my work is supporting candidates, ensuring that they are doing the appropriate academic work and the placements which best support their ministry formation. I have previously worked for Edinburgh Presbytery, as their Youth Adviser, and for Central Services as the National Adult Adviser.  I have also worked for local churches, most recently for Morningside United Church.  Outside the church, I have worked for the Third Sector in a number of roles and I try to bring the breadth of my experience to this post. Outside work, I am involved in politics and feel very much part of my local community in Leith where I have lived all my life.
