I’ve worked in a wide range of different areas of care, from mental health to eating disorders, drug and alcohol dependency, as well as older people’s care. As a home manager I feel it’s important to be open minded and open hearted, kind and to recognise everyone’s individual strengths. I’m here to help colleagues to develop and support residents to enjoy the best possible life.
I love the morning and late evening at Woodland Hall. In the mornings I spend my time talking to colleagues, residents and visitors. I feel very privileged to be working and supporting such wonderful people. In the evening I take five minutes to reflect on my day and see if there’s anything I could have done differently or better – then it’s on with the paperwork.
Before joining Care UK in 2020 I was working as an administrator for a travel company. Before that I was studying and graduated with a law degree in 2016. My role at Woodland Hall requires good customer care skills and the ability to juggling multiple tasks at once all with a friendly smile. It’s great to know what there is something new every day and that I am always improving on my skills. At the end of each shift it is great to know as a team what we have achieved.
Outside of the office I love photography and capturing pictures. Otherwise I love getting stuck in to a great novel and studying foreign languages.
I joined Care UK in 2018 because I wanted to work for an organisation that shared my values. Each day I bring my extensive nursing and management experience to help improve the lives of others.
My role requires good clinical knowledge, excellent communication skills, empathy and understanding for the people we care for. Each day I work in such a supportive and close-knit team where I can share my nursing and clinical skills.
I love spending time with my family, doing Pilates and Nordic walking. I am a certified walk leader with Nordic Walking UK. I have undertaken sponsored long distance trek challenges for charities such as The Peace Hospice and the Alzheimer’s Society.
I joined Care UK in 2020 to continue my passion as a Business Administrator and broaden my experience. I previously worked within the hotel industry and for a chain of dental practices as an Office Manager for ten years.
My role at Woodland Hall varies from organising reception and the admin office to assisting the team and resident’s families. I love interacting with the residents and seeing their faces light up whenever I say hello. Being a Business Administrator does require skills from finance to human resources and multitasking. It is a breath of fresh air to be surrounded by such a helpful and friendly team.
When I am not travelling into work I am travelling all over the world. I love cruise ships for exploring different countries and I enjoy learning about their social history.
Before joining Care UK in 2020 I ran my own business and worked in the hospitality sector. At Woodland Hall, I get to meet new people and make a difference. I love helping to provide a safe, happy and comfortable environment for the people we care for.
My role requires a passion for helping others, problem solving for the safe running of the home, and a positive and approachable manner.
Outside work I enjoy spending time with my family. I am very into keeping fit by going for long walks and exercising at the gym.
