Renata joined CareMalta in 2012. Her first role was as a care assistant at Zammit Clapp. During her 7 years as a Senior Carer Assistant and as a Lead Care Assistant at Villa Messina, Renata was responsible for the care department for 3 years. During the same time, she was reading a Higher Diploma course in Geriatrics and Gerontology, awarded by the University of Malta. In September 2020, she was promoted to Assistant Facility Manager at Casal Nuovo. During that time she was also offered a position as a Designated Manager at Casa Apap Bologna within HILA Homes.
