I currently hold a Personnel Manager’s position at a dynamic and well-known nationwide company. I qualified in Personnel Management in 1978 and reached a senior level in the industry at an early age. I am in a privileged position to be the author of a sequel series, Sebastian the Lion Cub, distributed by the Kishugu Group of Companies. I am so blessed and honoured.
With my need for educational knowledge, I took various courses such as Unisa – 2002 - Public Relations on Line (1-year Diploma). Helen Knight Music Studios International – 2008 till 2010 - Vocalist Opera. SA Writers College – 2014 - 1 year Diploma - Skryf ‘n Roman. Unigrad College – 2017 Communication & Management Communication. 2018 – 2020 Study towards Holistic Health. Allied Health Professions Council of SA (AHPCSA) qualifying as Therapeutic Reflexologist in 2020. Currently busy with studies in Iridology. SA Vryskutskrywer – 2021 Studying Editing and proofreading. I am also a member of the Bloemfontein Writer’s Association.
Writing remains my heartbeat and I wrote a number of short stories for well-known magazines. I’ve published two volumes of poetry including Mara, Winterslewe, Holklank van Binne, Woud en Water, in the Komsat, the publication of Afrikaans poetry. During 1992 - 1997 I served as radio broadcaster for Radio Overvaal Stereo, a community station in Viljoenskroon where I presented amongst others Kunstenaarsdebuut and Kortbeentjietyd. This was followed by Christian children's stories and puzzle games such as The Crucifixion, Noah's Ark, Adam and Eve, Cain and Abel. In 2007, I was approached by the Executive Director of ‘Radio Trans World’ to write short Christian stories for broadcasting.
During my studies as a Reflexologist, I treated several patients, among them a twelve-year-old boy who was diagnosed with Ewing Sarcoma on his T7 vertebrae. During his treatment, I learned the value of patience and perseverance. I was able to successfully complete my case study because of his willingness to share with me the success of holistic healing. I sincerely thank Sean Adlem for the miracle that he is and his strong faith.
