I am passionate about:
Identifying gaps to service delivery and building the tools and the systems to bridge them.
A little known fact about me is:
I have three daughters one of them has cerebral palsy and has been the motivation behind my work. My other two daughters work closely with me to acheive our shared beliefs to see more inclusive families & continue to inspire me with their commitment.

Founder and Change Maker
"Be the change you want to see"
My life’s work, and the company’s origin was inspired by my daughter, Shelly. I co-designeed the first South African pediatric posture support device and through this work met many other families in need. In addition to design & manufacture I am passionate about advocacy and policy change.
I am extremely proud that Shonaquip is one of South Africa’s oldest social enterprise and that we have played a role in changing the landscape for children with mobility disabilities and their families across the region.
