Originally from South Africa, I moved to Hamilton in early 2007 after a 3 year stint in the UK.
My career started in the Optical Industry having practiced as a qualified Dispensing Optician for over 18 years. Since completing my BSocSC(Psychology) in 2012, my focus shifted from optics to Training & Development and Human Resources. After working in HR for over 6 years, my passion for people and lifelong-learning saw me leave the optical industry in 2019 to explore an exciting opportunity in the not-for-profit sector as People Capability Lead with Sport Waikato.
I’m excited to be part of an organisation that puts people first and who works tirelessly to get ‘everyone out there and active’.
