I have been working in care for 12 years. I started as a non-driving carer, setting myself targets to progress within the industry. My first target was to pass my driving test so I could become a Team Leader which I accomplished within my second year.
As the responsibility grew, the hunger for more responsibility developed. I completed training to enable me to train my colleagues as I have always believed training and knowledge is key to making us stand out from the rest. I completed my Level 5 in Health and Social Care and became a Registered Manager. I joined Forget Me Not in 2018 and can honestly say that I would never look back.
Karen has built a company with strong caring ethics, always putting her staff and clients first. In 2019, I took on the role of Registered Manager and recently signed up to complete my Level 7 in Business Management and Development to work alongside Karen in order to bring Forget Me Not steps beyond the rest in the future.
My aim is to grow Forget Me Not over the next five years, but not lose the person-centred approach that our clients love so much about the company.
