She is also a member of the Management Team and a Directors of Aberdeen Street Pastors. In her professional life Eleanor was a nurse, midwife and nurse teacher. Much of her time in nurse education was in Aberdeen but also in Gloucestershire and Tayside. Eleanor was pleased, however, to be able to take early retirement from her post as Dean of Students at Dundee University. This opened up a new opportunity to serve as a pastoral assistant at Central Baptist Church in Dundee for 5 years.

Away from work, Eleanor enjoys hillwalking and has taken on some big challenges including a trek to Everest Base Camp raising funds for Street Pastors.
Stefan worked in the oil industry for 40 years, mostly focused on the business development of relatively small service companies. Twice he was the first marketing guy hired by companies run by engineers and manufacturers. In the final 12 years of his career, he served as a country manager, regional director, and company shareholder. Today he considers it is a privilege to be part of the Aberdeen Street Pastors Board and Management team and to help maintain – and where possible, improve – services and relationships that the organisation has developed over the last 15 years.
