Why you became a Banting Buddies weight loss coach?

I have always been passionate about good food, so was excited to find a like minded healthy eating philosophy. I hope to help my clients discover ways of eating that is good for them, their families and the planet.

How have you personally benefited from Banting?

Banting has improved my lifestyle on all levels. I have lost weight, sleep better and have more energy. Every day I am excited to learn and share new ways to a healthier life.

Other interests and background info:

I am married to Ivan and we have two daughters. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, sharing meals and having fun. My favorite place to relax is the Langebaan Lagoon on the Cape West Coast.

I studied at UCT and have a National Higher Diploma in Education: Home Economics – Secondary

(Food & Food Science III, Nutrition III, Natural Science III, Interior Design III, Clothing & Textile Technology III, Educational Psychology I.)

My career has been based in the food industry both corporate and entrepreneurial. For 14 years at Woolworths as a New Product Development Manager. I then founded The Dairy Connection, their national dairy supplier specialising in yoghurts and desserts.

As a business owner I gained incredible experience in running my own business, with a huge focus on people skills, food production and supply.

I look forward to being able to share my skills, with a Banting focus to both my clients and the food industry.
