Employment Record


2017-2022                           From 2017 until November 2022 Iwas employed on a contract basis for various Pharmaceutical companies. My role was either to coach patients with diabetes or help doctors get Medical aid reimbursement for the treatment their patients required.

2010 – 2017                         Medical Educator (Diabetes) in Port Elizabeth.

My commitment to my work is backed by my efficiency, drive and dedication.

I am able to see the big picture although I exhibit good attention to detail.

My rapport with my colleagues is good, often being seen as the “go to Person”

Having worked previously in the medical aid industry as a DUR pharmacist, I have a good understanding of the funders.

Team work is the corner to success in diabetes.

Diabetes is an area driven by service. Ensuring that both the patient and the HCP have a positive experience will ensure that patients achieve better control.

I am one of 6 Diabetes Conversations Expert trainers in South Africa.

I have trained Healthcare Professionals (HCPs) as facilitators. Two of the areas now offering exceptional results with Conversation map sessions they run. One hospital presenting a poster at SAAHIP.

I give regular talks to doctors, nurses and pharmacists. This adds value to their practice or role.

My previous sales role assists me in communicating with customers.

My interests include road running. I am seen as my running friends to be motivational and enjoy helping them to

achieve their dream.


I am highly motivated with my strength being good communication and motivational skills. I believe that once patients have a better understanding of their condition and the treatment required they tend to ‘own’ it and look after themselves  better.

I have a passion for learning and enjoy discovering interesting new ideas and information, Although my experience has been in the area of diabetes for many years, there are other areas of health that interests me.
