Meet the Kenwyn Care Home team
Hi, my name is Nikki, and I am the general manager here at Kenwyn. Welcome to our website!
I am originally from Liverpool, and I qualified as an RGN in 1991 at Medway Hospital in Kent. After qualifying, I reached the role of ward sister on an acute cardiology medical ward, then married and worked within the military environment as a nurse practitioner.
I have continued to study throughout my career, obtaining several additional professional nursing qualifications.
In 2009 I made a career change, working as a deputy manager in a nursing home, and subsequently as a general manager for over 10 years.
I have moved to Cornwall and, with the assistance of my team, I am now responsible for the running of this beautiful care home.
Here at Kenwyn, were are passionate about providing safe & effective care within a supportive and friendly environment.
I have 1 daughter and a grandson who live in Brighton, and in my spare time, I following British ice hockey, supporting the Belfast Giants.

In 2019, I took the full-time ‘Head of Unit’ position on the upstairs nursing units. I have had a varied nursing career, gaining experience in both the NHS and care home environments.
I have worked at Kenwyn Care Home for over 20 years. As a Senior Sister on the Glendurgan unit, I am in charge of a team who provide a high standard of specialist care to younger residents, including those with brain injuries and tracheostomy requirements.
