Julia has been a registered nurse for over 30 years after completing training at the Royal London Hospital. She made the move to Norfolk in 2000 with her husband and young daughter, and in 2008 transferred from the NHS to the care home sector. It is here she began working at Brooklands and has never looked back since!
Julia says: “Being manager of Brooklands Care Home is never dull! I get to work with a fabulous team of caring and compassionate people and am really proud of what we offer to our residents and families. The fact that I can still nurse in my job is also hugely important to me as it’s something I’ve been doing since I was 18.”
In fact, so extensive is Julia’s nursing experience, she is the Clinical Lead responsible for supporting all nurses across our award-winning group of care homes.
When she isn’t at her home-away-from-home, Brooklands, Julia lives in the countryside and loves spending time in the garden with her two cats, Noodle and Luna. She has been married to Ian for 24 years, and the couple’s daughter, Jo, who is now in her early twenties has joined Brooklands as florist and gardener, giving our home a true family feel.
Julia tells us she likes to spend her days off keeping active; “I love yoga, Zumba, playing tennis and badminton. I also love to travel and am currently ‘ticking off’ European cities!”
Our home manager, Julia is here to help you and your family.
