I qualified as a Registered Nurse and worked within the NHS in both the acute and community services, before transferring to the commissioning sector of the NHS.
I left to join Social care and started as a Home Manager. I managed several successful homes for a range of large care companies before joining a charity run hospice as their CEO.
I recently returned to the social care sector to become Managing Director of Marton Care Homes and now, also St Mary’s Care Homes.
I started in the care industry at Grosvenor Park care home as a Care Assistant in 2010, where I progressed to a Senior Care Assistant then on to the Deputy Manager role.
After 4 years at Grosvenor Park I was promoted to Home Manager (at another Marton Care home). I left Grosvenor Park and started my career as a Home Manager at Riverside View, which I really enjoyed for eight years.
After eight years of being the Riverside View home manager I was promoted to Regional Manager in 2023.
I love working in the care sector and I am passionate in what I do.
I started my career in 1991 as a care assistant at Langley Park Care Home. I progressed through to carer, senior carer, administrator and then home manager in October 2001.
After 29 years at Langley Park I was promoted to Quality Manager, moving over to regional manager in June 2021.
I’m very passionate about care and strongly believe that everyone should have their independence promoted and their values, morals, culture and beliefs respected.
We should all have the right to choose regardless of abilities, and effort can always be made to ensure choices are promoted and communicated accurately.
