Hello, I have been working for Gracewell of Church Crookham since a few months after opening, I have worked in most areas of the home, I started in housekeeping then I become a hostess until I joined the reception team, this is where I got to learn a lot of the administration role so when there was an opening I applied and was successful. I love working for Gracewell of Church Crookham as we are such a close family, not only the staff but the residents are part of that family. I am originally from Liverpool but moved to Germany as my husband was in the armed forces, we then were transferred to Church Crookham where I started at Gracewell and couldn’t of been made to feel any more welcome, I am hoping to spend many more years here as it has become my second home.

I firmly believed that resident's satisfaction and nutrition is the most important aspect of running a successful kitchen. I like to ensure that food that comes out of my kitchen is prepared and presented to the highest standard. I have plenty of extensive experience in fine dining such as working for six years as a Sous Chef at The Dorchester Hotel, Park Lane which gave me opportunity to cater for the Queen and Nelson Mandela amongst other famous faces. I have gained many years' experience working in five star hotels abroad and achieved numerous awards here and there. I also have experience in dealing with special diets as I have also worked as Head Chef for nine years at the Royal Surrey County Hospital. Now, I am glad that I am part of Gracewell Team and I simply love looking after my residents. I always feel self-contentment whenever I do something for them because I do believe that food is one very important aspect of their well-being.
