I obtained a B Cur (Nursing) degree in 1978 from the University of Pretoria. I practiced as a professional nurse for more than 20 years and worked in various foreign countries. My experience and qualifications include nursing administration, nursing education as well as clinical nursing as a general nurse, midwife and psychiatric nurse. I also hold qualifications in Nursing administration, nursing education and Public health nursing. In 2000 I completed an LLB degree at Unisa and after doing the required articles, I was admitted as an attorney in 2003. I practiced as an attorney from 2003 to date and I am specializing in clinical negligence cases.
