Vicky Mallaburn

General Manager

Hi, my name is Vicky and am the general manager here at Meadow Park. Welcome to our website!

I am proud to say that I have been in the care sector for many years, starting as a care assistant and developing my knowledge and skills to become a deputy manager, before taking on the role of general manager here. 

Meadow Park is very special to me,  as I have evolved and grown in the various roles, learned a lot about myself personally and I am incredibly proud of the team that works around me—we are a strong team. 

I have gained a lot of knowledge and experience about the home and I continue to develop through formal qualifications, learning new things on a daily basis.

I am very passionate about my job and strive on ensuring all of the residents are safe and happy within our home. I will continue to work hard in every aspect of my job role to improve the standards of high quality care within our home.

I am a keen gardener, who also enjoys listening to a variety of music ranging from Elvis Presley to the Sex Pistols. I love clothes, shoes and fashion, and enjoy watching horror films.

My favourite destination is Tenerife, where I enjoy family holidays.
