I began working in health and social care at 18 as a student nurse, specialising in paediatrics. I then took a change in career and began working with adults with learning and physical disabilities. I started working for Liase in 2009 as a support worker. I became Deputy Manager of Lulworth in 2013 and progressed to Manager at Blake in 2014. In 2016 I became the Registered Manager for Blake and Lulworth where I remained very happily until my maternity leave. I have always been incredibly passionate about enabling the individuals we support to experience as many opportunities as possible that will enrich and fulfil their lives. I maintain a keen interest in supporting individuals with complex health and finding new and innovative ways to motivate and drive staff to deliver high quality care holistically, with the individual at the centre of all we do.
