On the 5th July 2013, I was awarded a Peter Davis Staff Trophy Award for Lifetime Learning at Portland College.
What do you feel is your biggest achievement outside of your career?
They may not be big achievements but there are big moments that I am proud of. As a youth in South Africa, I organised and facilitated Martial Arts Sessions for children in an attempt to keep them off the streets after school. As a devoted Christian I was involved in Church Street Pastor Services where with a group of church volunteers, we would go out on weekend nights to support homeless people and those injured or unable to get home safely after a night out.
What are your Qualifications?
I completed my Enrolled Nursing Qualification in South Africa [September 1990] and worked for 3 years in a Hospital as Enrolled Nurse providing Community Mobile Clinics & School Services in remote rural areas. I then went to University and completed my Nursing Degree in December 1998. After my graduation, I was offered the opportunity to become a Registered Nurse in the United Kingdom [Sunderland Royal Hospital] where I worked for 5 years. My family and I then moved to the East Midlands where I worked at Portland College for 12 years with Young Adults with Learning and Physical Disabilities. While at college, I completed my Teaching Certificate in December 2013 and Level 5 Leadership & Management Qualification in December 2015.

What top tips would you give someone when looking for the right care home?
I would advise them to look at the care home's CQC rating, visit the home and spend time talking to staff and residents. Check at the facility for cleanliness, organisation and ask questions about the service delivery. Importantly, observe the general state of residents and service users to see if they are well looked after and enjoying their stay.
