“ I want to make a positive difference to their lives”
I have been working at Steeple View since it first opened on the 16th January 2006.
Originally employed as a Night Support Worker before progressing to a Day Support Worker. During this time, I was also the Activities Coordinator, arranging trips and days out for the tenants.
I applied for the role of Team Leader position not even thinking that I would be offered this post and got it! I absolutely loved working in this role, being able to work closely with staff, tenants and their families as well as interacting with other healthcare professionals to make sure we are meeting all of our tenants needs.
In October 2016 I was promoted to the role of Service Manager.
In this time, I have been driven to make Steeple View one of our best schemes. Steeple View achieved overall good rating with CQC and we have just won a Bronze EAC Award.
