Laura came to Bluebird Care Wiltshire South with a great understanding of the Health & Social Care Sector having grown up in her own family run residential care home. Laura’s career began working in a pharmacy where she became a qualified dispensing assistant. At the age of 21 Laura went looking for a new challenge and ventured into the corporate world of banking. During this time she became a mortgage advisor and a premier account manager. Both roles provided different challenges and allowed her to broaden her knowledge of the business environment.

In 2010 Laura made the decision to join the family business at the care home she began working as a care assistant and progressed to become Deputy Manager, completing her NVQ3 in Health and Social Care. When the decision was made to sell the family business, Laura moved to Wiltshire and joined Bluebird Care Wiltshire South as care coordinator.
