… The nitty gritty …

If heart and soul counted, I would list those first. But of course you want to know if you can trust that I know what I am doing.

I attended Maris Stella school in Natal, where I finished with a Matric Exemption:

English * Afrikaans * Mathematics * Science * Drama * History

I then went on to Varsity College where after much debating, chose the BA in Psychology and English over Journalism. It became evident by 4th year Honours Psychology that my heart was to make a difference in the world, more often than not leaving my heart fulfilled and my purse empty. I decided to do an Education Conversion Diploma (PGCE) so that I could then move on to a Masters in Educational Psychology. But as it so happen in life, our plans don’t work out and soon I was running after the man of my dreams and not the Masters.

We married in 2009, when I was a brave 22 years old. I spent a year teaching and gaining experience so that I could apply for Masters, when a little seed was planted and a baby grew. Soon enough by 24 I was a parent.  And again at 26. And again at 30. I managed to get a few years in teaching English in a high school, before changing it up to Grade 2. On the side however, I had kept up my passion for writing and in 2010 I began Ghost Writing for what was then called Odesk. In between the years I managed to run the start of Coffee at Claire’s, and be a mom.

After a few years teaching, a random Diploma in Advanced Pastel Accounting and a 3 year business making children’s clothes – I decided it was time to do what I should have done back in 2005 when I went to Varsity College. Write.


And so we are here. Qualified and experienced. Quirky and colourful. Ready to be hired.
