Director of Development and Holidays
70 Milton Street
Jackie’s first contact with SU Scotland was in secondary school where her history teacher invited her to an SU Group and then encouraged her to go to Easter camp. At that Easter event, she clearly heard the gospel and made a commitment to follow Christ. Clearly, she was stuck with us, staying involved in holidays throughout student life and leading an SU Group while teaching Modern Studies and History. Since joining the staff in 1990, she's gone from a regional worker post in the north-east, a move south to "do something different in Edinburgh", to East Team Leader and Associate Director, finally taking up the new post of Director of Development in October 2014. She lives in Penicuik, Midlothian where she is involved in the life of a local church and in spare time enjoys being in the gym, playing golf, spending time with friends and reading a wide variety of books. She also has an interest in Russia (even attempting to learn the language!), Ukraine and other parts of Eastern Europe which she says is the result of studying politics.
