Melanie is an experienced business owner and managing director within the care industry with a track record in business development. Passionate about delivering a quality service and leading a motivated team of staff.
I have a nursing background and spent my early adult years working as part of the hospital and community teams planning and delivering care. I found my role hugely fulfilling and especially enjoyed being able to make a real difference not only to the patient themselves, but also to their families. Driven by the lack of quality childcare options available when I had my first child, I set up a new business offering day care for children aged 3 months to 5 years. Based on a high quality family centred approach, I led a motivated team and together we delivered care and education to the highest level achieving best outcomes for individual children and their families. Using creative thinking and an informed understanding of statutory requirements and best practice, I developed the business to make us the leading setting within the local area.
Developing what was initially a hobby, I have in recent years been working as a fitness instructor and personal trainer, building up my own business with a specialist interest in rehabilitation and clients with complex requirements.
I am dedicated to forging a path for Bluebird Care (Bournemouth) to become a respected and forward thinking provider of home care in Dorset. There is a great deal to do, but I am very excited to have the opportunity to make a real difference by providing the highest standard of care; promoting dignity, choice and independence; and enabling people to remain in their own home for as long as possible.
I still very much enjoy many forms of fitness training, and can be found teaching yoga on a Saturday morning. I also love to cook...which necessitates the ongoing fitness training!”
