I am a Decision Optimiser at heart.  In my mind I continuously analyse different decision options, and evaluate patterns to firstly identify the most probable option to be successful and secondly the most simple and elegant approach to implement it.

I loved mathematics and science in school and enjoyed working with people, so I decided to study Industrial Engineering.  I graduated in B.Eng (Industrial) with the University of Pretoria in 1999.  I started my career in Industrial Engineering as a Graduate in Training in the mining industry and worked on a number of business improvement projects where cost reduction and process improvement was usually the focus.  From the beginning I was intrigued to understand what makes people excel at what they do and how we can apply and develop our teams to their best potential.  Consequently, in 2004 I turned my focus to the Human Science side of business and spent the next 6 years implementing innovative learning strategies for companies, mostly in the aluminium industry, to improve product quality and throughput, reduce waste and reduce human error. 

After working on a number of feasibility studies for new mine development projects, I decided to focus on decision support as a specialisation area for the rest of my professional career and joined the VBKom team in 2013 as Decision Support Consultant.  Since then I have worked on a number of projects, mostly providing services in risk management and operational readiness. I enjoy the dynamic and unpredictable nature of the project world and I strive to continuously improve my ability to add value through empowering informed decision making in uncertainty.

At home, I share my life with my husband, daughter, two boys and our Golden Retriever. Together we create unforgettable memories exploring interesting rock climbing destinations in South Africa.

In 2016, I graduated with a degree in Industrial Engineering from the University of Pretoria.

Reigning from a small town in Limpopo (Tzaneen), adapting to the lifestyle in Pretoria was one of the biggest mountains I’ve ever had to overcome, but now I wouldn’t want to live anywhere else in the world!

I look forward to the new chapter in my life with VBKOM – I know it will be an unbeatable and invaluable learning experience.

Besides work, I occupy my time by enjoying cocktails or wine with my friends, spending time in the outdoors with my boyfriend, and driving my sister crazy.

I also enjoy reading fiction, and will never watch a movie based on a book, before reading the book!
