I’m looking forward to getting stuck in and helping drive forward plans for Dail Mhor redevelopment. I have lived in the Ardgour area for the past 13 years and have come to know the peninsula as home. I would love to see care provision in the area meeting the needs of everyone that lives here in a way that is what is needed rather than just what is available. I’m excited by the progress already made by Urram and I’m looking forward to continuing to work with all of the communities, current care providers and to help Urram realise its vision:
‘Urram envisages a time when all care services in the area are either delivered by, or in, cooperation with them; working with NHS Highland, Highland Hospice, Highland Council and other appropriate partners. The aim is for care to be flexible and provided in a way that it is responsive to the needs of this community.’
Previously I was the Operations Director for Abernethy Ardgour, the outdoor centre down at Kilmalieu. I am married to Pete and have 3 children.
I am really excited to be working with Urram as the new Community Care Coordinator. I’ve lived in Ardgour since 2017 and lived in Strontian for one year previous. I grew up in Arisaig, and I feel very grateful that my children will also grow up in a small, close-knit community. I fully understand that living in small, rural areas comes with its struggles and I am looking forward to working as part of the team with Urram to help overcome these some of these challenges.
I also work in Abbeyfield Care Home in Ballachulish, and I look forward to bringing my knowledge of working in the care sector to this role and being part of Urram as it grows and develops.
