Michele Bodman - Operations Manager
I have had the pleasure to work with people that need care and support since I was 16. For the past the 33 years my career has taken me across every avenue of the sector and country and I have held many roles. All the roles I have held were taken with the aim of improving care for those people that need it and at the time it is required. At 16 I started work as a care assistant and realized quite quickly that my passion was for helping people. My career led to me teaching and training those values that I held dearly, helping other caring individuals to obtain recognised caring qualifications across the southwest initially and then across the UK. I have seen many changes in the sector over these years however one thing always remains the same “my passion for excellent care provided by caring, kind people at the point of need”. I continue to be one of those carers.
Alex Haines – Accounts Manager
My name is Alex Haines and I am the Accounts Manager, based in Westbury. I have been with Butterfly for two years, and worked for the previous five years in the care industry. I deal with all the finances of the company, including the payroll, invoicing and collection of payments. This role is enjoyable, as it is different every day, and always interesting. I have a degree in English, Politics and Social Science, enjoy travelling and spending as much time as possible with my three sons.
Ben Wicks - Business Development and Facilities Manager
It is a great pleasure to fulfil the role of Business Development and Facilities Manager at Butterfly. I am very much looking forward to embracing the challenge of working in a new industry and helping the organisation to progress. My previous experiences come in the world of sport development. Over the past few years I have worked in several sporting organisations differing from public sector organisations to charities. Most of this work was focussed on supporting underrepresented groups, be it individuals with learning disabilities or young people from lower socio-economic backgrounds, to live healthy and active lifestyles. The fundamentals of my previous roles reflect closely with this new role; ensuring those who need it, get a high quality of support to benefit their day to day living. Out of work, I have become rather engrossed with the sport of triathlon and will be undertaking my first Ironman event in September 2017.
Louise Lockyer - Assistant Care Manager (Bath)
My name is Lou and I am the Care Coordinator for Bath branch. I started working in the care sector 20 years ago and can honestly say it has been a pleasure to work with people who are requiring care, I have done all aspects of the care from care assistant, support worker (mental health), supervisor and coordinating. I started with Butterfly Home Help in August 2016 as the Care Coordinator and I am very happy with my job role and enjoy working for a family run business because we go above all expectations for the clients we support to carry on living in their own homes.
Steph Shallow - Assistant Care Manager (Wiltshire)
My name is Steph Shallow and I am the Assistant Care Manager of the Wiltshire branch. I started working in the care industry in 2002 where I worked as a Health care assistant in the local hospital. I also worked as a care assistant in an elderly person’s residential home. I decided I wanted to get into the care industry after following in my mother’s career path as she was a manager of an elderly care home. When I was younger I frequently went to work with my mother and spent lots of time playing different games and interacting with the residents there. I loved meeting new people and hearing all the stories from when they were younger. I started working for Butterfly Home Help in 2014 after relocating to Wiltshire with my 4 children. I started my career with Butterfly as a care assistant and have also been a senior carer before becoming Assistant Care Manager. I have thoroughly enjoyed these roles within Butterfly and the opportunities I have been given and I am looking forward to what the future holds.
Debbie Harris Southey – Care Administrator
My name is Debbie Harris-Southey and I am the Care Administrator in Westbury. I have worked in the care industry as a care assistant for 9 years and I enjoy working in the care industry. I enjoy my job very much and enjoy meeting new people and helping them. I started working for Butterfly in October 2015 where I was a part time Care Assistant. I decided to apply for the care administrator job in August 2016 to further my career within the care industry for Butterfly.
Vicky Nash – Care Coordinator/Administrator
My name is Vicky Nash. I have worked for Butterfly for 2 years. I took the incredible step into the care sector 4 years ago. This was a career decision that I wasn't sure I would enjoy, however here I am 4 years later, I consider this to be the best choice I've made regarding my career, I have taken many job roles within the 4 years and have enjoyed all of them. Although I am currently enjoying a different aspect of my career by co-ordinating carers and ensuring clients are receiving a service they require, my favourite time was when I was out in the community providing care for so many individuals. Whilst spending time out in the community for many years has helped me promote my experience towards my current job role. I have learnt so much about myself as a person through the care I offered. Although I haven't been in the care sector for as long an amount of time as some, I truly believe this is where I will stay for many years to come.
