Introducing our colleague Natalie
Natalie, also known to family and colleagues as ‘Princess’, has been a member of the Ashridge care team for just over a year, having worked for the previous three over at our sister home in Eastbourne, Pentlow Nursing Home, before its closure.
At Ashridge, Natalie began as a Team Leader, but is a firm believer in self-improvement and development. She has since progressed to assistant trainee practitioner, and you will also see that on her wall she has an NVQ level 3 Dementia Diploma and a Medication Dispensing – Mental Health Diploma. These are some of the rungs of the ladder that Natalie believes will lead her to her ultimate goal of becoming a nurse.
Born and raised in Eastbourne, Natalie has stayed in the area for most of her life. She married in 2016 and now has two children as well as six nieces and nephews from three brothers and two sisters – and one cat! Natalie is also very close to her mum.
Apart from precious spending time with her children, Natalie keeps busy with yoga, going to the gym, ‘manifesting’ and using crystals and going on social media. She also loves fast cars, make-up, animals and her favourite tipple is gin. Natalie’s got just two pet hates: tomato sauce and negative people!
