About Me

Passionate about development! My most recent focus has been on small business development,  assisting entrepreneurs to grow and navigate their business strategy and digital marketing efforts. Experienced in WordPress and Shopify website development, social media, digital audits, coaching, training, and out-of-the-box strategy.

I have a number of years experience in both the Marketing and advertising industry as well as eCommerce Online stores and extensive Leisure and Corporate Travel Management experience in some of South Africa’s leading Tourism and Travel Management Companies.

 I work well independently or as part of a team.  I am a determined and disciplined go-getter who has recently founded and opened a school in Durban for special needs children.
