I graduated from the University of Stellenbosch in 2014 with a degree in B. Speech-Language and Hearing Therapy.
I had the privilege of completing my community service year at Madwaleni, a rural District Hospital in the Transkei. Madwaleni taught me the value of transdisciplinary treatment and community living, the importance of education and prevention as well as making use of limited resources.
I then worked at Rita Henn & Partners, a physical rehabilitation hospital in Auckland Park, Johannesburg. There I worked with a wonderful team in the paediatric unit, treating in-and out patients. I gained much more experience within the neurological and dysphagia fields and completed the VitalStim Plus course.
In 2017 I took the opportunity to go overseas for a year. I au paired for a family with three boys and did some traveling in Europe.
I have a particular interest in dysphagia, neurological rehabilitation and primary health care and I thoroughly enjoy working with a patient and his/her family during their rehabilitation journey.
