Area of Speciality

Palliative Care and Community Nursing


I am a trained palliative Care Nursing Sister, working with Chariot Health in the Southern Suburb communities. I have worked in Palliative Care since 2016 in both public and private settings. I am devoted to supporting patients and families who are needing home support as well as increasing both community and health professionals’ awareness around Palliative Care and what it can offer.

In my free time I can be found enjoying forest and mountain walks around Cape Town, with my family.
