My name is Anu Sharma Chapagain and I am Clinical Manager at Ashburn House in Gladesville.
It gives me immense pride and joy to be able to make a positive difference to someone else’s life. I find respect, a caring nature and dedication to be the most valuable qualities in nursing.
In 2012, I completed my high school with a major in Science and moved to Australia for further studies. I started studying a Bachelor’s Degree in nursing at Western Sydney University in June 2012. I worked in Ashburn House and Westmead Hospital as Assistant in Nursing during my studies.
I completed my degree in December 2015 and my passion for aged care drove me to choose to continue to work in the industry as a Registered Nurse. I started to work as a Registered Nurse in Ashburn in December 2015. I also worked in Montefiore Nursing home for few years along with Ashburn House until I got pregnant with my first baby. He is three years old now and I am also blessed with another son, who is one years old. I love spending time with them, both are so energetic and bring so much joy to my life.
When not working or enjoying spending time with my boys, I enjoy watching documentaries, taking long drives, and visiting new places. I have found the balance between work and life. I am a happy person, loving mother and enjoy spending time with residents as they always have many stories to share.
I have recently started working as Clinical Manager at Ashburn House and am thankful for the opportunity.
I learn new things every day and the opportunity for growth is almost unlimited. I feel so good when I
see happy and smiling faces around me.
