I was born in July 1969 in Somerset West. I spent my childhood years on our apple farm near Grabouw. Years later our family moved to Wellington where I matriculated in 1987. After school I studied at the Cape Town Hotel School in Granger Bay for 3 years. I received my Higher Diploma in Food Service Management in 1990.
I was immediately employed by Fedics Food Services an Assistant Catering Manager at the Civic Centre in Cape Town. One year later I was offered a position as Catering Manager at the University of Stellenbosch Graduate School of Business, in Belville, where I worked for the next five years. I was then appointed at the Panorama Medi-Clinic as a Project Manager. Several years later, in October 1999, I was priviledged to join the Eikendal team.
I am extremely passionate about my job as Eikendal Lodge Manageress. Together with the very capable Eikendal Lodge Team, we strive to make every guest feel special and shower them with our warm and generous South African hospitality
I lived on a farm in the Groblershoop area, small town 120 km’s from Upington, in the Northern Cape. My husband was a wine and raisin farmer but when he passed away I relocated to the Western Cape.
Lived in Hermanus from 30 months where I was the manager of a 5* guest house and then relocated to Stellenbosch (most of my family live in an around the Stellenbosch area) and am now working at Eikendal Lodge as an Assistant Manager and looking forward to the new exiting chapter in my life.
