I joined Richard House in 2007 as a Care Administrator managing a very small team. One of my main jobs was centred around managing bookings and admissions to the service, which ’ve returned to in last couple years.

Since this time, my promotion to a more senior managerial role has navigated me across statutory funding and information governance.

Over the years, I developed knowledge around families, it’s not just about their day-to-day service needs, but getting to know them as a unique family. It’s heartening to know even the smallest bit of support can make a huge difference to them.

I’ve mainly worked in healthcare- based charities most of my working career and I’m glad to say in over 35 years, Richard House have been the highlight! It's an honour and privilege to work here.

Spare time seems rare but I am a bit of a classic movie buff - particularly movie scores and composers, and I also enjoy a spot of exercise in my spare time.
