Deb, (21 + 21) years, Warrigal Employee
“I went for a cleaning job at Warrigal Bundanoon 21 years ago, but the matron needed nurses on the floor, so I started as an assistant in nursing. Later I worked as a Physio Aid and a Recreational Activities Officer. I am now Employee Development Officer – it still surprises me to this day that I got the role!
My aim is to ensure our staff are well trained so that our residents are well looked after. Happy residents make a happy home. I miss the interaction with residents, so I try and visit a lot – you can learn so much from their stories.
I’m getting married in Fiji in soon! I have a daughter and 3 soon to be step children. We love taking the kids to the movies, the beach, the zoo. They have lots of time with their grandparents so they don’t sit at home on their gadgets!"
