I was born and raised in Vaalharts in the Northern Cape. After qualifying from Onderstepoort in 2005, I moved to Sedgefield. Soon after getting married in 2007, my husband and I moved to the UK where we lived for 7 years, working, travelling and gaining experience. I love hiking and running, especially trail running. We have two lovely lively little boys, who are growing up on a farm where we can all enjoy and appreciate nature and being outdoors.
