I hold a MBChB Degree from the University of Pretoria since 1998. I started my Professional Medical Career at 1 Military Hospital in Pretoria where I gained valuable experience as an Emergency / Trauma Medical Officer. During this time, I also briefly worked as a locum in the UK.
From March 2004 – December 2008, I joined the United States Peace Corps office in Pretoria on a permanent basis as a Regional Medical Officer for Southern Africa. In this role, I acted as the point of contact for all US Peace Corps Points of Presence throughout Africa, assisting with consults, evacuations and other clinical reviews for Peace Corps Volunteers who needed advanced medical care that could not be provided in their service countries.
I finally joined a team of highly skilled and motivated clinicians at Wilgers Trauma Unit in January 2009 until current. These are also the people that now form the team at Medahead @Wlgers. We share strong ethical principles and enjoy working together to apply our skills and knowledge to make a difference.
I have been happily married for 14 years and have two beautiful kids. My strong family bonds forms the very foundation that underpins my work ethic. My husband and I are also affiliated with a NPO called ILL GO, a Christian Missionary Service that does outreach locally as well as in Chennai, South India.
