“I grew up the youngest of five children in an incredible family of motivated and caring people. My parents taught us, by example, the importance of volunteering and giving back as much as we could to society. This fundamental aspect continued through school, university and throughout my working careers. In my early 40’s, after volunteering as a Victim Support Volunteer at our local SAPS, I decided to change careers. This would be the third and final career path for me when I founded an NGO called Community Cohesion. Our core focus is psycho-social support, education and training. I lead a team of 12 extraordinary human beings, working daily to empower others to live their best lives. My mom is still my biggest motivator.”
