I began my career in the care sector as a care assistant. Once I qualified as a registered nurse (adult trained), I worked as a surgical nurse, critical care nurse, senior staff nurse and the a sister for 4 years within the private sector.
Whilst working in these positions, my interest and appreciation for older people became apparent, and I became passionate about supporting them in any way I could.
I joined Barchester in 2018 as a Unit Manager on a Memory Lane community at one of our sister homes, and I am very proud to say that I am now the Deputy Manager here at Middletown Grange.
This home has a wonderful, caring and fulfilling atmosphere. Happiness is not a goal, it’s a by-product of a life lived well, and my aim is to ensure that both residents and staff alike feel this way too.
