Owner, Registered Provider & Registered Manager
Having been born and brought up in Surrey, over the past years I’ve travelled further south and west with each house move, spending 20 years in Somerset then moving down to Devon in 2003. When I’m not at St Omer I’m usually to be found walking my dogs or listening to classical music – and making time for trips up to the opera at Covent Garden as often as I can!
I moved to Torquay from Buckinghamshire two years ago and started working at St Omer as Head of Care. I left St Omer for a short time to work at the hospital. I returned to St Omer as Deputy Manager as I enjoy working closely with the residents and their families and I like the warm and friendly atmosphere. When I’m not working I enjoy reading, crochet & knitting and walking.
Owner & Registered Provider
Prior to owning St Omer, which Jo & I bought in 2003, I spent most of my professional life in Information Technology and Management Consultancy (and the world really just can’t have enough of both of those professions!!?)
I have a deep (and most say a very sad) love of what used to be called prog rock. In recent years I have had the pleasure of seeing again my guitar hero David Gilmour (lead guitarist of Pink Floyd) four times at the Royal Albert Hall. As you can tell I live in the 1970’s and still feel Comfortably Numb.
