Registered Home Manager
In 2015 I became the Registered Manager at Acacia Lodge.
I love heading up the team at Acacia, we have great people here who go beyond the call of duty every day to deliver outstanding care to our residents.
The best part of my role is being part of a great team, seeing residents smiling and enjoying, being part of the family and making a difference.
Deputy Manager/Clinical Lead
When the opportunity arose I applied for the role immediately. My manager has been my mentor and adviser and has encouraged me to keep the momentum going with everything I plan. Thelma nominated me for the care home awards in 2018 and I made it to the final seven. A proud moment!
I joined Acacia Lodge 6 years ago and work here as a Head Chef.
I enjoy working in a friendly atmosphere and seeing happy and smiley faces of our residents.
My role is important because I ensure that our kitchen staff have the highest level of food hygiene and quality so that we retain our 5* rating.
In my spare time I like going to the gym, running, cycling or playing table tennis. I have done 18 half marathons and 2 full marathons!
I also walked 100km from London to Brighton last year to raise money for our residents and I set up an aquarium for them in Acacia.
