Monika joined St Leonard's as minister back in 2014 having come from a parish in New Zealand. However, her background and training is within the Church of Scotland (since moving here in her 20s, at least).
Before becoming a minister, Monika trained as a teacher - although rarely got to teach her beloved subject of history. Teaching all sorts of everything was ideal preparation for the many and varied tasks of ministry - Monika loves that this is a 'jack of all trades' job!
