Following promotion to operations manager in 2015, she has enjoyed two further successes at the Kingsley Care Awards, winning operations manager of the year and motivational leadership prizes.
In her new role, she will oversee operations at Kingsley’s 15 homes in the East of England.
She said: “I am passionate about what I do and work hard for the homes, managers and staff. I am focused on delivering strong leadership, supporting, nurturing, mentoring and sharing the knowledge that I have accumulated in my time in care.
“My big goal is to take at least one of my homes to an outstanding CQC rating to demonstrate how good we are as a company.”
Georgina qualified as an Enrolled Nurse – Mental Health in 1984 and worked in hospitals and care homes until returning to study in 1998 when she did a conversion course to become a Registered General Nurse.
She said: “I then returned to working in residential and nursing homes, moving up from deputy to manager roles; before joining Kingsley I worked for Age UK Norfolk and commissioned their biggest resource, Gray’s Fair Court, in Costessey, an assisted living development, respite and day care facility.”
In March, 2017, she was invited to a reception at the House of Commons in recognition of Kingsley’s commitment to training and collaborative work with the YMCA.
