I grew up and went to school in Clydebank – many of my family still live there – and, after participating in the school production of ‘Oliver’, I caught the acting bug! In secondary school I took part in lots of plays and got myself an agent, making a few brief (blink and you’ll miss me!) appearances on TV. I went to Glasgow University, studying History
and Theatre Studies and, whilst there, went to Ghana in 2002 for a month through Girlguiding. The trip changed my outlook and, I believe, the path of my life, and within a couple of years of that trip I was exploring my calling to Ministry. I was accepted as a Candidate in Training for Ministry of Word and Sacrament in 2005 and returned to Glasgow to do my BD. I completed my probationary placement in Arbroath: St Andrew’s Church under the supervision of Martin Fair (The Very Rev Dr!) and was ordained and introduced as the Associate Minister of that place in December 2009.
Another change in direction came after being invited to return to Glasgow to do a PhD (yes, I am an eternal student!), and so I did, in September 2010. It was during that time I met and fell in love with Steven and we were married in May 2014 before beginning my ministry in the linked charge of Clydebank: Abbotsford linked with Dalmuir Barclay. In 2016, we were greatly blessed with the arrival of Grace, just a month after I graduated with my PhD and that, kind of brings you up date.
