A bit about me...
I would like to introduce myself. My name is Cheryl Eklom and I am proud to be the Village Manager at Oak Tree Retirement Village Burpengary.
I have lived in the Burpengary area for the past 12 years and believe it to be a homely place to reside, close to the city and yet not far from the Sunshine Coast. My two children completed their tertiary schooling locally here in Scarborough and I have been lucky enough to have worked in the local area for many years.
I have worked formerly in Retirement Villages in Scarborough and Carseldine and have also worked for many years interstate in NSW in both aged care and the hospitality industry. My experience spans 25 years in the retirement industry and I still love it as much as I did the day I started.
Oak Tree are a family orientated company who really get to know their residents and villages first hand.
My contribution to Oak Tree is about providing a safe and secure environment and loads of enjoyment to my residents. I love seeing smiles on their faces and get great satisfaction when I hear my residents say that moving to Oak Tree was the best decision they ever made.
I am looking forward to busy times ahead and would love to welcome you through our wonderful village.
