I graduated with a Medical degree from the University of Kwa-Zulu Natal, followed by a Bachelor of Science degree with Honors, a Master’s degree in Medicine and a PhD in Physiology. I am a member of the Golden Key International Honors Society. As an academic, I lectured Physiology at UKZN followed by Anatomy & Physiology at the University of Johannesburg. I was also an NRF Grant holder, with research interests in Phytotheraphy, and have various publications in highly acclaimed, international scientific journals. I have presented my findings at distinguished congresses both locally and abroad. I then pursued corporate interests, where I held the position of Scientific Affairs manager for 3M healthcare (Infection Prevention Division) and later added the role of National Sales Manager. I also held the positions of Chairman: CFSA- Gauteng Chapter, Chairman: 3M (South Africa) Technical Forum and Acting Chairman: IAHCSMM- South Africa. I am currently the Medical Officer at Augustine Medical (South Africa).
