I joined Forth Bay as a newly qualified Staff Nurse in 2001 and took on a number of senior roles, including Charge Nurse in 2003 and Deputy Manager in 2006, before eventually becoming the Home Manager.
This in-depth knowledge of the home helped me prepare for my role as Home Manager and I am working hard to ensure that those in my care continue to lead happy and fulfilling lives, whilst maintaining choice over the care and support they receive. I strive to give our residents the care and lifestyle they wish to have, and endeavour to involve them in every aspect of their care.
As well as spending time with residents and making sure that they are comfortable, safe and happy, I see it as an important part of my role to act as a mentor to my Care Team. I firmly believes that a happy, fulfilled and motivated Team will be able to deliver consistently high standards of care.
I enjoy a range of hobbies outside of work, including arts and crafts. Having lived in the region for over 30 years, I love nothing more than taking in the picturesque local scenery whilst walking my beloved dog.
