About:

I focus on driving success and ensuring high regard and respect for others. I believe in Value, Glory, Hope and efficiency and positive energy.

I dress for success and make sure that the way I look serves my purpose, ambitions and audience.

What can I do to make a difference?

I am giving back. I believe that everything is connected, your gifts, your circumstances, your purpose, your imperfections. This moulds your journey and destiny. I use all the traits that I have learnt along the way to help women, whether it is embracing their femininity, or making a small difference in telling someone how amazing they look today ……….I want to be an Influencer to career women and moms out there to strive and own it! I am building my brand through business, modelling and fashion. There are a lot of us that put in significant work, who get up early for school and work. Women who still study and work. Grind, sacrifice and discipline. Women who preserver and prioritise self-worth and love. There is hope to rise above all and hold it down even when times are tough. I want to be proof of it.

Your Story

Born and raised in Durban, living and working in Johannesburg.

Graduated with a B.com Accounting Degree from UNISA and an MBA from the University of Reading.

I am very ambitious and driven.

Am a full-time corporate career woman and currently head up the Business Integration Department at Absa.

How my modelling career began.

I was scouted by a modelling agency while walking through a shopping centre. From there I signed up with a modelling agency and started the journey. Life happens, and career and studies are beginning taking up priority. Still pursuing the dream and my passion and flair for fashion, I continued to build up my part-time modelling career as a freelance model in Johannesburg. I have been involved in mostly fashion photography over the past few years and am happy!

A lot of my adult learning was because of the people I met along the way, who I watched and learnt from. I wanted more from life and started to work towards it, setting goals and milestones for myself.

I must say, I was timid, my confidence levels were quite low. I managed to face a lot of my fears and work from strength to strength to become stronger personally and professionally. This was through coaching, mentoring and modelling.

I’ve personally struggled growing up - always being the tallest girl in the class, and still feeling “odd” around the other girls. It took me a while to discover that it was not a bad thing. As soon as I began to embrace it, and accept myself, my confidence grew. Awareness plays a massive part in your life. Becoming aware of how to use your positive traits and work with what you have helped me grow into myself. Modelling for me was the tip of the iceberg. The industry has given me new Experiences, shown me breathtaking venues, and I have made such good friends along the way. Being a model has also exposed me to a lot of different skills, such as proper posture, communication skills, poise, body and health nutrition, confidence and most of all, I, in turn, have applied it in my career and everyday life. What can I do to make a difference?

You are giving back. I believe that everything is connected, your gifts, your circumstances, your purpose, your imperfections. This moulds your journey and destiny. I use all the traits that I have learnt along the way to help career women in the workplace, whether it is embracing their femininity, or making a small difference in telling someone how amazing they look today ……….

What are my favourite things?

Pasta, Warm days, Arts and Crafts, and most of all spending time with my children (Tristyn and Kitana)

Where I want to go next

I want to be an Influencer to career women and moms out there to strive and own it! Building my brand through business, modelling and fashion. There are a lot of us that put in significant work, who get up early for school and work. Women who still study and work. Grind, sacrifice and discipline. Women who preserver and prioritise self-worth and love. There is hope to rise above all and hold it down even when times are tough. I want to be proof of it.

My brand is “Don’t Just Chase Passion, Look for Opportunity!”
