I joined Rotary for the first time in 2007 and then took a break from Rotary in 2010 to catch up with formal studies. I am a student at UNISA completing my Diploma in Office Administration (general)
My working career as a Clerical/Personal Assistant and then Administrator commenced at the University of Durban-Westville that spanned18 years. The last 9 years was spent working in the Biomedical Resource Centre. Thereafter I worked on a 3-year contact basis for HIVAN the Centre for HIV/AIDS Networking at University of KwaZulu-Natal where I served as an Administrator and PA to the Director – Social Sciences. Upon completing my contract I went into family business as Assistant Director (New Era Clothing) and then Director of my own business manufacturing denim clothing. (Reeds Untamed Style cc). Weary with world prices plummeting, I left the industrial/production world ten years ago to join the Education Labour Relations Council (a bargaining council for educators in the public sector). I am employed as the provincial support officer for KZN.
My academic achievements include: Diploma in Computer Literacy, Higher Certificate in Computer Literacy, and a Certificate in Office Administration
I live with my son, Shimil – aged 24 in Ottawa – KZN,.
