Mercedes Murray

Activity Co-ordinator

I thoroughly enjoy engaging with residents and encouraging them with a range of activities available at Steep House. Being a team member allows me to utilise my fantastic teams’ strengths and work together to improve residents time here.

One of my favourite parts of my role is when a resident has enjoyed an activity or has surprised themselves with engaging in an activity.  I believe in maintaining and improving ones well-being at a crucial time in their life.
Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with family and friends. I also play the guitar and write my own music. I have a pet dog and love smothering him with cuddles!
