I joined Signature and social care in April 2018 as General manager for the very successful Parklands Manor in Chertsey. Prior to that I had extensive senior management experience as a nurse and director in the NHS and private healthcare. I have found the move to Social care hugely rewarding in being able to focus on not only providing the highest quality care and physical security for our residents but also ensuring that we focus on mental and psychological wellbeing to maximise independence encouraging ‘living well in later life’
I have an MBA from Brighton University, and I have maintained my registered nursing qualification specialising in Trauma, Orthopaedics and Ophthalmology. I also undertake CQC inspections up to three times per year as a specialist advisor for the CQC.
I am so looking forward to opening the new Signature home in Beckenham, building a team that can offer a real sense of community and independent living, developing a home that will also become embedded within the Beckenham neighbourhood
