Manager's Profile

I lead my professional Care Team in delivering the highest level of care and support for our residents and have a wealth of nursing experience.

My experience and commitment have equipped me well for my role at Mount Pleasant and I work had to ensure that those in my care lead happy and fulfilling lives, whilst maintaining choice over the care and support they receive.

I believe in maintaining strong relationships with residents and their relatives, and understand the important contribution that these relationships make to the successful running of a care home. I love nothing more than spending time with our residents and getting to know them better.

I feel that the Caring Homes philosophy matches up well with my own beliefs on care provision, and I am committed to ensuring that all our residents continue to receive the high levels of care and protection they deserve.

Away from work I enjoy walking, baking and spending time in my garden with my two children.
