Nicola’s career began in retail, she then went on to specialise in HR and Training. Qualifying in 1993, her first role was as the Training Manager for Umbro in Manchester, then as an Area HR and Training Manager for Sema Group based in Nottingham.
Whilst raising her family she ran her own business helping local businesses grow by gaining an effective presence on the Internet. She gave up work in 2012 to help care for her father who had been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease in 2007.
Watching her Father’s decline with Alzheimer’s over the last 8 years and helping to care for his needs at each stage has left Nicola wanting to make things better in the future for other Alzheimer’s Patients and their Carers. She firmly believes that the more discussion there can be with patient and family, the more prepared they will be in the final stages.
