My Story

For as long as I can remember, I’ve always wanted to be a doctor, and I am the first doctor in my family. However, one of my core memories growing up is my family feeding the homeless, caring for the elderly, and always being involved in volunteer work within our church and community. These values of helping and caring for others played a large role in my becoming a doctor.


I graduated from the University of Stellenbosch in 2016, thereafter I completed my 2-year internship at Tygerberg Hospital. I was then placed in Mitchells Plain for my community service, where I spent my first 6 months in the trauma unit and the next 6 months in the outpatient department at the local clinic.


I am motivated to be the best at what I do, ensuring that my patients receive the best possible care.

Outside of treating patients, I want to educate and empower them to make better health decisions.

I believe that patients should be treated holistically and that patient-centred care plays a vital role in the management of patients.


I am passionate about mental health, childcare, and women’s wellness, and I'm so happy that I get to help people struggling with these conditions at Innohealth Clinics. As a general practitioner in Woodstock, I have to assist my community in any way possible, and Innohealth Clinics is a fantastic partner to do that with.


Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, reading, and being outdoors.
