As a senior operations manager, I am responsible for the overall management of our supported living services in the West of Scotland, with various lead responsibilities for key business areas.

I began working in third sector social care organisations as a support worker in 2002, shortly after moving to Glasgow from England. 

Since then, I have worked in various roles, working in and developing new and existing services for all kinds of people. 

It matters to me what sort of organisation I work for – and I was delighted to join Carr Gomm in August 2013 as operations manager, becoming senior operations manager in July 2014.

I’m also very keen to make sure that people can see social care as a brilliant career, and to ensure that we support people in the best way we can.  When we do this, we make a huge difference.

Carr Gomm is a great environment to work in. We encourage an open culture where employees can bring new ideas and test new ways of working. I was really pleased to discover this when I first joined the organisation.  

Away from work, I like spending time with my family, reading and running.

Anyone who has been to my house for dinner would tell you that I love Indian food – it seems to be all I cook!
