Jenny manages two local authority children's homes as well as the leaving care team in Falkirk. Her background and qualifications are in Community Education and she 'fell' into social work after working in a hostel for homeless young people, where she discovered that many of them had care backgrounds. This led Jenny into residential child care.

Jenny established the Leaving Care Team in 2004 and counts among her achievements all sixes in her Care Inspectorate report as well as overseeing the refurbishment of a former police station into a beautiful children's home.

Jenny's advisory role on the Board is to support the chairperson. Jenny is also Chair of the Finance and HR Sub Group.
