Career History

I qualified as a General Nurse in 2003 working on a variety of medical and surgical wards including the Intensive care unit and Orthopaedic wards.

I worked as a Deputy Care Manager of a residential care home for a short period of time. After that I developed an interest in brain injury rehabilitation in 2008 when I first began working with brain injured clients. In 2013 I took on a role as a Team Leader of a brain injury rehabilitation team, which enabled me to gain experience in coordinating a large support team and work collaboratively with the client, family and professionals to support clients in establishing and reaching their goals. I learnt to appreciate person centered care whilst allowing clients to achieve their full potential and independence following their injury. 

I also gained a BA (Hons) in Criminology and Psychology, as well as a BSC in Social Sciences.

Current Work

Since joining Head First I have enjoyed building on my previous experience and working with a wider range of clients, from those with severe physical difficulties including nursing needs, to those with cognitive and emotional or behavioural issues. I am involved in supporting clients and their families to cope with the many difficulties they face following brain injury, including managing complex support worker packages, co-ordinating and reviewing rehabilitation to maximise my clients potential, and engaging other services as required to enable them to live as safely and independently as possible.

 

Competencies and Key Skills:

  • Coordinating the intervention of support workers and Multidisciplinary team.
  • Highly experienced at recruiting and managing large support worker teams, including carrying out supervision, training and performance reviews. 
  • Working closely with family members, solicitors and health care professionals. 
  • Providing assessments and other clinical documentation, such as risk assessments, support worker guidance, rehabilitation plans, progress reports, as required.
  • Flexible practitioner, able to work effectively within an MDT and also independently.
  • Effective communication skills and ability to build a positive rapport with clients, families and support workers, including in challenging circumstances. 
  • Experience of implementing community-based rehabilitation programmes, linking in with local services where possible.
  • Proven ability to work under pressure.
  • Ability to work independently or as part of inter-disciplinary team.
