Senior Management Team
I started my career in 1983 working for the NHS at Sheppey Hospital, in a rehab physiotherapy unit working with stroke patients, limb replacements and elderly care. I loved the work but shift working is difficult with a young family.
After having my family, I moved to working in home care services, mostly providing care to older people and disabled people in their own homes. I quickly became the Area Manager of Boldglen Ltd, Sheppey area and continued to work there for 14 years.
To further my career to Registered Manager, I moved to Audley at Mote House in Mote Park and set up the new business at the retirement village, providing care for residents and the local community. Here I undertook my Leadership and Managers Award and continued my development.
Four years later, I moved to Avalon Enterprise UK Ltd, working with adults with learning disabilities or autism in both supported living and outreach. Here, I found my passion and 7 years later Avalon was bought by PCAS and my journey continues with them, doing what I love.
I took on the Operations Manager role at PCAS when the companies merged, but after 2 years, I moved across to a Quality and Compliance role which allows me to be out and about in the services which is what I most enjoy, being amongst the service users, making sure they get a quality service and the best life possible.
As the company has grown and developed I have moved back into the Operations Manager role with a focus on Quality and Compliance and continue to love what I do.

Head of HR
I have over 30 years’ experience in HR having started by career in London working as Personnel and Training manager in various hotels. I left London in 1995 to have my son moving back to Kent where I grew up.
After a period of maternity leave, I worked firstly in HR in a large Insurance Company and then was lucky enough to secure the role of Assistant Personnel Manager for Kent Police which was an incredibly interesting and often exciting role. After six year, I left to join Kent Fire and Rescue Service as Policy and Strategy Officer where I stayed for over two years and have immense respect for both public services.
My move to social care happened in 2010 where I joined Avante Care as Operational HR Manager, an organisation providing 24 hour care and support for people living with dementia. I really enjoyed being part of seeing how the HR department could add to the quality of the care provided to the service users and for ensuring staff were treated in a fair and equitable way. I was promoted to Head of HR and Organisational Development and can honestly say I loved the work i did working alongside an amazing team of people and left after twelve years.
On leaving, I undertook some work with Faversham Counselling services, in HR, again a service I have a lot of respect for, before joining PCAS in January 2023 and am really excited to be part of an organisation and team with such vision and passion in the work they do.
