I am passionate about grant-making and seeing projects successfully implemented. I’m excited to join the GENUS team and looking forward to learning more and getting involved in research, proposal writing and networking within the Palaeoscience community.

Professionally I am Chartered Company Secretary(CIS), with H.Dip in Taxation(Unisa), MAP(UKZN), and MBA(Milpark Business School). Currently in pursuit of an MPhil in Development Finance with the University of Stellenbosch with the intent to progress towards a PhD.

I have over ten years of experience working with NGOs and the private sector in grants management, financial management, cost and management accounting, budgeting, compliance and risk management, and audit. Working with Genus will provide many opportunities to develop myself as proposal writer and a fundraiser.
