Having trained in finance, Symone has spent most of her career as a management Consultant involved in start-ups, business turn-arounds and advising larger organisations. She assisted companies in improving their engagement and services to their clients and establishing key partnerships, as well as running several small companies herself.
Symone currently owns and runs the Tunbridge Wells, Sevenoaks and Edenbridge office of Home Instead Senior Care which provides high quality, personalised home care for people living in Tonbridge, Sevenoaks, Tunbridge Wells and her own village of Edenbridge. Following a traumatic experience trying to find suitable homecare for her Grandmother, Symone is determined that older people in her community have the choice of truly dedicated, caring support to help them live independently in their own homes and are always treated with the utmost respect and dignity.
As Treasurer of the League of Friends of Edenbridge Hospital for a number of years, Symone became very aware of the wide range of issues facing older people entering or leaving the health system and the stresses on their families and carers. At Home Instead she and her team provide ongoing support to family members,providing them with the reassurance that their loved ones are cared for as they would wish.
Symone is proud to be working with The Carers Wellbeing Initiative to provide therapies that help carers cope with their day-to-day responsibilities.
Symone spends her spare time with her young family, daughter and son, and her partner Graham. When she has the chance she enjoys yoga, gardening, cooking and reading fiction.
