Hello from Rev Jenny.  Here's a wee bit to introduce myself.

I grew up in Forres, and left to study Electrical and Electronic Engineering at Heriot-Watt University.  I worked for 10 years as a software engineer in the telecoms industry, initially in Airdrie, then for 5 years from home in Elgin - after we started our family.  I was a full-time mum for a time, before feeling called in the very different direction of full-time ministry of Word and Sacrament.  And that led me back to university, studying for my BD at Aberdeen University alsongside training placements in Lossiemouth, Fochabers and Aberdeen Royal Infirmary.  I was ordained and inducted into Duffus, Spynie & Hopeman in January 2013.

I am married with 3 children, which keeps life very busy.  We all enjoy music, and I sing with the Culbin Singers and play the cello (occasionally).  I was Christian Aid Organiser for Elgin, involved in the Church of Scotland Church & Society Council for a number of years, and am an Associate of the Iona Community, and so am interested in the interaction of faith with issues in the world and our communities.  And I enjoy the outdoors, with great hopes for exploring the many beautiful parts of the parish on foot and bike, as weather and fitness permit.

I hope we can all learn from each other and grow together in exploring worship and sharing God's love with everyone.  And I hope to get to know people over time as we journey as God's people together, serving our communities.
