I was born in Durban and raised in Maritzburg. I have had an incredibly diverse career in both hospitality management and recruitment. I have worked for exclusive game lodges in Southern Africa; namely Mala Mala, Phinda Game Reserve, Tswalu, Gorah and Nxabega. I am an outdoorsy and adventurous person - passionate about nature and the preservation of our earth.
I had a deeply profound connection with the elephants at Gorah Elephant camp during my two years there. These elephants were incredibly relaxed and serene. A herd would walk a meter away from my car with a peace and tranquillity that was palpable. I recall the innate sense of oneness that I felt with them as we observed our surroundings; looking into each other’s eyes and reaching into each other’s souls. These experiences left an indelible mark on me; and a so began a lifelong love for these gentle giants.
I am so excited about this adventure. I relish the opportunity to travel and make a difference within Africa and contribute to the conservation of her precious wildlife.
