What I do:
I am very excited to be part of the opening team for Eden Court. I am passionate about delivering an excellent quality of service and care for our residents and apartment owners. As a team we will work together with all the residents, apartment owners and relatives to ensure that everyone receives the individual care and service that they require and deserve.
I have over 10 years management experience within the hotel industry. This is where my passion for quality service originate. I also have 8 years Regional Management experience within the NHS working across multiple GP surgeries and Urgent Care Centres. I joined Cinnamon Care because I am passionate about getting to know individuals not just from a care point of view but who we are as people. My combined experience in hospitality and healthcare will ensure that Eden Court delivers individual excellent hospitality and care.
I have many hobbies outside work. I am a keen skier and try to get at least 2 weeks each year in the mountains. I am a really keen sea kayaker and really enjoy combining this with camping trips. I have completed many kayak expeditions both within the UK and abroad.
My bike is my main method of transport and I am also a keen gym goer.
Originally from Lincolnshire, I often return there to visit family and friends.
For the past 13 years I have had the good fortune to work within the retirement and care home industry and I really enjoy being with people who have lived long and very interesting lives.
As I’m a certain age myself I can appreciate how difficult it is for prospective residents and their families to make the right decision about where and how they want to spend the rest of their lives. Lifestyle goes hand in hand with care nowadays and is equally important to such a discerning age group.
I live with a beloved greyhound who comes to work with me and is a wonderful ice breaker when a visitor is making a decision about where to live in the future.
I have worked in the care sector for the last 6 years, my role as a Resident Services Advisor at Eden Court is both a privileged and enjoyable one. I can help, advise and support families and individuals as they consider a move into a care environment. Having had personal family experience of such a move, I am acutely aware of how life changing such a move can be. I very much enjoy meeting many different people and am passionate about helping them making the right choices for their future.
I have been an active part of the care/retirement sector for the past 12 years. My role has been to meet with residents and families who are considering a change in their current living situation, sometimes as a choice and sometimes due to necessity. This role has been both rewarding and fulfilling and has become a true passion. I am also a Dementia Champion and have given a number of talks creating new Dementia Friends along the way. My other role as a mother and wife also keeps me busy in my spare time. I am privileged to of been able to bring my beautiful rescue greyhound Norman to work with me over the past 7 years and often he will be the one everyone remembers!
