Hi there! I’m

20 years’ experience in technology development.

I live and work in South Africa, but the impact of my work reaches across the beautiful African continent.

Throughout my career, I’ve been fortunate to work on projects that have introduced the power of technology to millions of homes, while engaging in my personal commitment for teaching and empowering young girls through mentorship.

I am an Amazon Web Services (better known as AWS) Certified specialist, and am eager to see more IT specialists “get-their-certs”. Becoming AWS certified has shown me the depth that new technology offers Africa, and I’m committed to sharing this message practically as far and wide as possible.

We grow by investing in authentic relationships across communities and networks, and I have been fortunate to work with many professionals and leaders throughout my career. While I deeply enjoy working on cloud migration projects, teaching and speaking at various platforms; my great passion is to give young girls the platform to learn about technology so that they have the tools needed to build a better future for themselves and their communities.
