I did my training at Ann Latsky College and my practical at the old Kempton Park Hospital. When I got married, I went to work at doctor's rooms.

The nursing blood was too strong and I went back to the hospital, where I also did my Theatre nurse training. I worked there until the hospital closed in 1997.

I went to a private hospital, and left there to start the new millennium as a private nurse practitioner, I did wound care, frail care, oxygen therapy, and also ran a baby clinic and primary healthcare at a Pharmacy.

In 2017 I became a stay at home granny for my 2 grandsons. I currently assist as a Home Nurse Assessor for CareChamp and enjoy to still have contact with patients.

Qualified as a Professional Nurse in 1976 after studying for 4.5 years for my B Cur degree. I then started working in Cardio Thoracic ICU, and there I have found my niche in nursing. I did the diploma in ICU nursing. It was stimulating and taught me to care for my patient holistically. After 21 years, I decided to broaden my field and worked  for COHSASA, a company which accreditates hospitals in South Africa.

Then I did a 6 year stint at St Lukes Hospice as the Education Coordinator. Back at the hospital setting, I worked for 7 years as the Night Duty Supervisor. And before I left there, I was transferred to the Education Department where I was the facilitator of mostly 1st year students. I really loved it as I could impart my basic nursing care knowledge to the first year nurses and hopefully, managed to instill in them the caring aspect of nursing as well as all the theory.

I also did the Certificate course in Palliative Care and it is the area of nursing that calls to me the most. I see it as a special privilege to accompany the patient and family on his last road before death and have a special interest in adequate pain and symptom control for the patients. 

Currently I am assisting as the physical home nurse assessor for CareChamp in the Cape Town region.This comprises of home care assessments and care plan creation as well as required nursing procedures. I also ensure to identify the best suitable caregiver(s) for our clients in Cape Town.
