About me –
I’ve worked in care for the last 10 years, but recently moved to Kent to be with my partner. I’m a happy outgoing person with a lot to give, as I show by giving 100% when at work. I’ve chosen to do a few different carers since leaving school but feel caring for others is my way forward. I’m keen to learn in all areas of the job as I think you can never know too much. I like a challenge something that keeps your brain ticking and makes my job enjoyable.
