Hi. I am Louise, the Deputy General Manager at Longueville Court. I qualified as a nurse in 2009 and began my career in acute medicine in Yorkshire. I then moved to London where I gained a wide range of skills and experience working for a nursing agency across the city for 4 years. After that I moved to Peterborough and joined Longueville Court as a nurse in 2016. I was promoted to Unit Manager of our Young Disabled Persons' unit, which I thoroughly enjoyed. I then became Clinical Lead, and in 2019 was promoted into my current role of Deputy General Manager. Residents and staff here at Longueville Court are incredible and make each day enjoyable.

When I am not at work I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, and jetting off to see various parts of the world. I am also an avid supporter of Leeds United football club.
