I am an experienced, energetic and professional woman. I have a passion for people. I am curious, an avid reader and a life-long student. Words that other people use to describe me are: warm, open, grounded, friendly, calm, wise, deep, a helper, a sharp observer and a true professional. Qualities I do not take lightly, and employ in my work.
My life purpose is to help people connect with themselves and to others, in order to create better understanding and awareness. In a business context this takes shape by developing leaders. By living my life purpose I would like to contribute to a better world for all.
My life and work are guided by my personal values: love, warmth, respect, integrity and freedom. It is my fundamental belief that all people are naturally creative, resourceful and whole; it is from this perspective that I coach, train, consult and facilitate.
Traveling, South Africa, exploring ...
I have a special love for South Africa, a country where I have lived for a while. My travels bring me back to SA every once and a while. Travelling is what I like doing. It’s the excitement of meeting people, exploring cultures and countries. Enriching experiences.
As often happens, one thing leads to another. This happened to me and my passion for wine. I have always enjoyed a good glass of wine, and liked to visit wineries. One day, after having visited a couple of beautiful wine estates in South Africa, I decided I wanted to know more about wine and winemaking and so to go for my international wine certificate with the Wine and Spirits Education Trust (WSET). I now hold my WSET level 3 certificate and am currently pursuing the WSET level 4 diploma. The old and the new world of wine are waiting for me to be explored and enjoyed!
