I’m 37 years old with two children one adorable boy Kyle who attends Turtle Den Campus II and a teenage daughter Vuyokazi who attends West Rand Study Centre-Campus II.I am engaged to the love of my life. I would describe my personality as bubbly, warm and I do not allow anything to get me down. I create my own destiny and I work hard to achieve the goals I set for myself. I started working at Turtle Den as a cleaner and by asking questions and learning new skills I excelled and got promoted as an assistant, then a tutor and later on a manager.
I started my career at Turtle Den on the 10th of June 2000 was promoted as Manager for West Rand Study Centre Campus I in 2007. I oversee both West Rand Study Centre Campus I and II as well as oversee the day to day operations of Ridgevale Primary’s Tuck Shop. I love cooking and I am part of the 2Phat Ladies team. We cater over weekends for St. Vincents, EPASSA and Lantern School psychology department.
I am responsible to make sure that every day is like a well oiled machine and in the event that a tutor is absent I take the rains and stand in.
My Faith has carried me through a lot of trail and tribulation over years.
West Rand Study Centre has taught me a lot over the years that I pass on to my colleagues’ enjoy socializing and teaching people new skills.

I am one of the fortunate ones to have realized my childhood dreams of becoming a teacher. In some way or another I have always found myself being involved with education.
I obtained my teaching diploma in commercial subjects and started teaching at the age of 20. I currently live with my son which is one of three children.
I love working with children and I truly enjoy passing on my knowledge to others.
