After matriculating, I graduated with a BA (Industrial Psychology & Psychology) and later Advanced Diploma in Labour Law both obtained from the Randse Afrikaanse Universiteit (Currently, University of Johannesburg). I later graduated with the Advanced Programme in Organisational Development from the University of South Africa (UNISA) and last year during my career sabbatical actively pursued coaching and completed both the Certificate in Neuroscience Coaching from University of Pretoria and the Associate Coaching Course (Coaching for Development) from UCT Graduate School of Business, the Centre for Coaching in partnership with New Ventures West in the USA. I am a registered Coach with the International Coach Federation.
I’ve has spent the last 18 years in the Human Resources (HR) field in the Banking, Public and Higher Education sectors and most recently the broader Financial Services sector before transitioning my career into Coaching. Previous roles include OD Consultant, HR Manager, HR Business Partner and Senior HR Business Partner focusing on HR Transformation and Organisational Development, Leadership Development, Employee Engagement and Talent Management amongst others, as components of the entire HR value chain.
It brings me great pleasure and purpose to help and see others grow, acquire new skills or unlock latent potential, and to assist organisations to engage in a meaningful way with employees. With highly attuned listening skills and critical thinking , I bring a unique combination of intuition, and good people skills and can direct and motivate others while still being sensitive to their needs and concerns.
