Holding a Dual nursing qualification, Sheila joined the Muiríosa Foundation as Director of Nursing, bringing with her a wealth of experience working for people with an Intellectual Disability.
As Director of Nursing, Sheila has supported nursing staff across the Muiríosa Foundation, and has overseen the student nurse programme with Trinity College. Supporting the Centre of Education and Training, courses have been delivered to support staff in all aspects of their professional development including the provision of the Level 5 QQI Care Assistant course.
Since Sheila was appointed to the Regional Director role in Kildare, in addition to her responsibility as Director of Nursing, she has worked tirelessly to implement de-congregation successfully which has given residents an opportunity to live in their own homes in the community. She is grateful for the support of staff and the Senior Management Team who made this goal possible.
