Coaching Passion

I am an independently trained and qualified business coach with extensive experience in working both in the public and private sectors. My passion is to add value to people’s lives by coaching them to their unique levels of personal mastery and potential.

My focus is on women, especially in the mining sector.

I subscribe to international coaching competencies which are embodied in the SA Business Coaches, ICF, and COMENSA principles for coaching.

I am a qualified medical doctor and public health medicine specialist with an MBA and Diploma in Occupational Health. I have a wealth of management experience that spans 30 years, 17 of which have been at a strategic level and 10 in the mining industry.

I have gained experience in varied settings across the public and private sectors. My key strengths lie in strategic leadership and analysis, advocacy and lobbying, project and financial management and stakeholder management.

I initially worked as a medical officer in Mthatha hospital and this was followed by a management position as the Medical Officer of Health in Mthatha municipality. I served as the Director SADC Health Coordinating Unit and Head of International Health Liaison at the National Department of Health. I worked as a Health Policy analyst at the DBSA and have been the Head of Health at the Minerals Council South Africa for the past fourteen (14) years.
