I was born and lived in South Africa for 60 years. My yearning to fly away every chance I get probably comes from spending my early years in boarding schools. And this is exactly what Iíve done. Flying around the world and living in interesting lands like Namibia, Botswana, Holland, China and more recently Thailand.

Background Information

My Passion has always been in education, not only the formal education, but life itself-nature and people. The more we know the less we fear!

I have always strived for a better world, embracing unconditional love--to love for the sheer sake of love itself--to always have fun and look for the positives and joy in everything and everyone!

My favorite quote comes from Nelson Mandela’s inaugural speech that he used in 1994.



I have worn many “hats” in my life and loved them all and considered them all an adventure--they include Montessori School Principle and teacher, trainer, therapist, mother and wife. There are too many to write down--my book waits in the wings of this wonderful stage of life!


"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.It is our light, not our darkness, that frightens us.

We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God.
Your playing small doesn't serve the world.
There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine, as children do.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."

Birth Place
Johannesburg,  South Africa

Teacher, Principal, and so much more!
My greatest achievement is raising 3 beautiful, wise,warm and wonderful daughters!
