Reverend Dr Jenny McKay combines a working life as both a veterinarian pathologist and a Church of England minister - she's what is referred to as a minister in secular employment. After a life-changing event changed her outlook, she decided to train as a priest alongside her professional career. In this episode we discuss her work as a pathologist, including how she got to the position, a period of huge disruption and how she felt a calling, leading to her ministerial training. Very interesting conversation about the benefits of working in both fields and how they complement each other - and asking the question should there be more ministers that work in secular employment owing to the experience and knowledge they can bring to their ministerial position.
