I first joined the team at Windmill Manor in 2011 as a part-time Admin Assistant, only a few months after the home opened. I then spent two and a half years as the Administrator at another Barchester home, before returning to Windmill Manor in 2018.

As the Administrator, I am responsible for all the financial and business administration at the home, working closely with the General Manager.

I love the variety of my job and the interaction with residents and their families.
