I grew up on a farm near Pietermaritzburg, in KwaZulu-Natal. After completing high school I worked for a few years before attending the University of KwaZulu-Natal to complete my honours degree in BSocSc Media. While at varsity I was active in the student newspaper and was a tutor for first year students, as well as doing part-time work for some NGO’s (Non-Governmental Organisations) in the area.
It was during my final university years that I met my husband, who is a Section Ranger for Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife, which is how I came to be involved with and love Zululand. We live at the Ranger’s Outpost in the remote Wilderness section of Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Park. I have been working for Wildlife ACT since 2010, handling the volunteer enquiries and placements, and I have come to know some amazing people over the years! Wildlife ACT is very lucky to have such incredible supporters.
Having spent my childhood on a farm amongst a variety of tame and wild animals, I love living in Zululand and consider myself very fortunate to be able to enjoy the beauty and variety of experiences that surround us here, every day.
