As an add-on to my career I’ve done voice-overs for corporate and promotional material, radio presenting, compère and public speaking. I was also a former model and beauty queen with a string of titles to my name, including being an entrant in the Miss South Africa pageant.
I had my shot of fame on the silver screen appearing in a few adverts and on airport billboards abroad for the South Africa Airways welcome campaign. I am also a qualified Reiki instructor.
