Vanetia Porter
Vanetia PorterResidents’ Support Worker
I have recently moved to the Rutland area having spent all of my life in Surrey.
I began my career as an Auxiliary Nurse over 35 years ago in a small cottage hospital but have since worked in a variety of care settings as both a care worker and a support worker.
I have five grown up children and several grandchildren and I enjoy baking cakes for them in my spare time. I love the area here and am looking forward to being able to enjoy some nice walks as the weather improves.
