Biography

Born on 21 March, 1968, in the small town of Ermelo in Mpumalanga, I grew up with my twin and two younger siblings. I’ve lived and worked in the platteland as well as big cities of South Africa but my vision has been global with all my projects since 2013. My curiosity has lead me to study a wide variety of subjects from experts all over the world.


As the mother of two awesome sons and a big blended family, I have made numerous valuable contributions to abundant family life. Being passionate about education, mindful parenting, critical thinking and creative problem solving, I have served countless families as designer of educational games for children, parenting tools and support initiatives for separation and divorce. Born out of my own life experiences of complex trauma, I also create opportunities and develop tools for cultivating resilience in the face of adversity, holding ourselves accountable and doing deep personal work toward profound breakthroughs.

Blessed to spend most of my business day serving my highest values, (I am a mother first and foremost) but then my focus is mainly on mentoring, design and writing to add to my international publications. I find harmony in literature, yoga, meditation, music and dancing. Above all, I indulge in the joy of family life, love and mother nature.

In 2015 I founded www.fairdivorce.co.za (a global educational initiative for families going through separation, divorce and blending new families). In 2022, my book 67 Divorce Problems & Solutions was published and I also launched www.getupandgrow.co.za  (a community where I teach members to cultivate resilience through all kinds of adversities) as well as Campaign Creator (a digital educational & marketing campaign initiative). In 2023 Edugraphics (a creative educational initiative) was born.

Get Up and Grow Challenges

Strength Training

I’ve always wanted to be strong enough to do a proper pull-up and push-up, so I started doing a strength training programme uniquely designed for me, by my son Reuben – a brilliant strength & conditioning coach and strongman competitor.

So far my lower back issues have been resolved and my knees are no longer weak and sore. I can do a handful of push-ups and still working on my pull-ups.

You can follow my progress and support me via social media.

Sign Language

My entire life I’ve always loved learning something new, so I’ve always challenged myself to explore a new topic, acquire a new skill or obtain a new tool.

I thrive on life-long learning and constantly bettering myself with stimulating activities and interactions with interesting and creative characters.

Hence I am making a life-long dream come true by finally learning Sign Language!

Connect with me on social media to follow my progress and support this challenge!
