I was born in Peebles and brought up in Innerleithen. I met and married John while living and working in Edinburgh. We became members of St. Andrews Leckie when we moved back to Peebles in 1987. We have two daughters, Jennifer now married and living in Motherwell and Sophie, who still lives in her beloved Peebles.
I was ordained an elder in 1991 and was appointed as Session Clerk in 2012.
For many years now, I have played the euphonium in the church Music Group, something that enjoy very much. I have always tried to be actively involved in many areas of church life but working full-time with NHS Lothian made that quite challenging at times. A new chapter opened up last June however, when I took the opportunity to retire early. I now have much more spare time to get even more involved – or so I am told!
