I was born in Derbyshire and commenced my nursing career
at 17 years old. Having obtained both RNMH and RGN qualifications I spent my early
career running units for people with learning disabilities and challenging
behaviours. I moved south from Derbyshire over 25 years ago and commenced by career managing care homes. During this time I worked in London for almost 11 years as the Home Manager at a home for ex service
personnel. I now live in Hampshire with two of my four children and their dog.
I am passionate about putting residents as the first priority and also using my teaching
degree to help staff with training and development.
Two of my sons work within the caring sector and my daughter is studying to
be a youth worker.
Studying nursing was always an ambition of mine and once I became qualified, I knew I’d find joy working within such a heart-warming sector. With over 20 years’ experience in caring for others, I have met and supported some wonderful people. That’s one of the many reasons I chose to work in care. I joined the Oak Hall team in May 2019.
Being a nurse and a deputy manager has a significant influence on who I am. The care and devotion I give to my residents isn’t just because it’s my job, it also reflects me and my compassionate nature.
My name is Dawn and I deal with all aspects of administration within the home, including being in regular contact with residents and their families, which is part of the role I really enjoy. In my spare time, I am a keen gardener. I have landscaped my back garden to encompass a range of different plants to ensure a vibrant colour-scape throughout the year. I also enjoy cooking for my family, embroidery and I read a wide range of fiction.
My name is Sally and I work within the Administration team here at Oak Hall Care home. Although I now work in Admin, I used to work as an activity co-ordinator at a care home in Grayshott for 8 years, so I am very familiar with the running of a home. I enjoy the HR aspect of my role and I am always happy to help you in every way that I can.
When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my husband, daughter Millie and our dog Marley. We enjoy going for long country walks.

When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends and often go on country dog walks with my dad and step-mum.
I studied at The Royal Academy of Culinary Arts in London and have previously worked in some top-end London restaurants & hotels. I joined the team in June 2020 and have enjoyed working in the kitchen to provide traditional restaurant-style food that is beautifully presented.

I particularly enjoy creating special menus for residents’ birthdays, and for the various events we hold at Oak Hall Care Home.
