Sharon Pither

General Manager

Hello, my name is Sharon and I am the General Manager here at Shelburne Lodge.

I qualified as a nurse in 1995 and have worked across various and diverse areas of nursing, ranging from mental health through to nursing care.

I joined Shelburne in 2014 and thoroughly enjoy my work; it’s both challenging and rewarding and no two days are the same.  

I work with a caring and conscientious team of people who promote a welcoming environment for residents and their loved ones. We always aim to provide the highest standard of care in a homely environment.
