My first job was teaching at Lamontville High School for four years after which I joined the textile Company based in Jacobs where I worked for eight years as a Training Officer. In 1984 I joined the National Productivity Institute as a Projects Manager until 1995 when I joined a consulting Company, which was later taken over by Deloitte and Touché and my role was Employee Development Consultant .

In 1999 I obtained the Advanced Human Resource Diploma with distinction and in 2002 then joined Federal – Mogul in Pinetown as the Human Resource Development Manager until in 2009 when I was promoted to the current position of Human Resource Manager now based in Prospecton.

I am a member of the Evangelical Lutheran Church and have held various positions within the church and have been with this Parish since 1968.

My favourite Bible verse is Phillippians 4:6  “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God.
