I joined back in January 2015 as the administrator for our Frome location, and then transferred to Salisbury in September 2019. Before I joined these care homes I had been working in the industry for ten years as a carer then a senior carer. I then became the administrator which I enjoyed as I had worked in administration roles before I had my children back in 2006. I am responsible for the recruitment of all team members, payroll, finance support, billing, and all aspects of administration. I have really enjoyed my time working here and being part of a very special team.

I have worked here since 2018 as the Head Housekeeper. I have many years' experience in similar roles in the care sector and as a carer in the community. I know the importance of looking after and supporting older people and I am proud to make sure that at all times, values and standards are always maintained to the highest level. It's important that all the lovely residents have a beautiful clean home to live in. I have taken on additional responsibilities as the infection control champion and train the team here to ensure that all residents are protected from infections to the best of our abilities, which has been very interesting and rewarding. I will always give 100% when at work to ensure that the residents have the best home to live in at all times. It's a beautiful home with amazing colleagues and a great place to work.
