BabyGym Instructor – BabyGym Institute, Advanced Mind Moves Instructor – Mind Moves institute


I studied LLB at Pretoria University, I completed my studies in 2005. In 2006 I started with my articles at a law firm in Johannesburg.

After completion of my two years of articles I was admitted as an attorney in the Transvaal High Court. During 2008 I was a law lecturer at Varsity College in Sandton, this is where I realized that I wanted to work more with people and especially babies and children. We relocated to George and when I was expecting my first baby I knew that my passion for babies and children was much greater that my passion for law. I qualified as a BabyGym instructor at the end of 2010. BabyGym gave me the knowledge and opportunity to work with the most precious gift….children.

I really enjoy working with babies, but I wanted to be able to help older children, this is where Mind Moves came in. During 2012  and 2013 I completed my Post Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) through UNISA. I am excited about the chance that I have to assist children of all ages with challenges they face.
I enjoy researching and writing about all aspects of child development and particularly how physical movement can development and improve children of all ages and with various challenges.
