Treat others the way you want to be treated. Talk to people the way you want to be talked to. Respect is earned, not given.

Operations Director

"Treat others the way you want to be treated. Talk to people the way you want to be talked to. Respect is earned, not given."
I strongly believe this motto is the key to successful leadership. Inspiring and guiding others who can dream more, learn more, become more and do even greater things are my enhancement principles to create an operating environment at Blossom Nurseries.

Holding a Master’s degree in English literature and Psychology from the University of Constantine the Philosopher, Cache Level 5 Diploma in Leadership and NCFE Cache Level 3 Certificate in Assessing Vocational achievement, underpin my knowledge, skills and 15 years of experience in the education industry.
My passion for Early Years started 8 years ago when my career path speeded up. I started as a teacher, became a Manager of a large Dubai based Early Learning Centre, and then joined Blossom in October 2015 as an Operations Director. My wide background in EY helps me to support Blossom vision ‘to create a world class nursery and early learning environments with a strong impact focused educational footprint in the region’ and to deliver Blossom mission ‘to provide a secure and stimulating environment where each child can blossom.’

I work with the management team on improving standards within the settings to ensure Blossom Nurseries are safe and stimulating and our teaching team delivers the best practice where each child can blossom through personalized learning.

I have burning passion for my work which pulls me through the toughest times and gives me the energy to burn the midnight oil and go that extra mile. It feels great to be a valuable member of Blossom team consisting of such strong and inspiring women!
