Someone once said, you can take the girl out of the country, but you can’t take the country out of the girl.  This is my life, a farm girl living in the city!  I was born in Brits and grew up in a small town called Skeerpoort, the kind of town where everybody knows everybody’s business and claims everyone is a relative, even if you are not blood related.  I matriculated at Hartbeespoort High school and in 2006 I moved to the “big city” Pretoria.

 

I studied Financial Accounting through the Institute of Certified Bookkeepers, In 2013 I joined the Blue Chip team, I am passionate about running the financials as effectively and efficiently as possible.  I have a deep respect for the standards of ethics and integrity that the aviation industry demands, I am responsible for the smooth running of the accounts department and I thrive on my daily interactions with our clients, suppliers and colleagues.

 

It has been years since I left Skeerpoort, but the sense of community has been ever-present no matter where I have lived, I have a soft spot for kids and will move heaven and earth for kids with special needs, I enjoy getting involved in projects where you can make a difference in a child’s life, even for just one day.  When I am not at work, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, love being in nature, river rafting, scuba diving or zip lining.

 

My favourite quote:  Let your dreams be bigger that your fears, your actions louder than your words and your faith stronger than your feelings.  Author unknown
