I have experience across many disciplines in health care, spanning over many year. My particular expertise lies within medical imaging and oncology where I have contributed to the development of services and the implementation of training in a number of countries in Africa. I have been in higher education for years and currently hold the position of Researcher and Acting Dean in a health science faculty. My research is interdisciplinary and crosses several health disciplines, professional education in a range of areas and community based projects on issues of social justice and transformation. Other spheres of my life include many years as a counsellor, involvement as a manager of a sports team, committee work in a variety of contexts and continued contact with a farming community in a Western Cape region. I have travelled widely but call Cape Town home and am committed to making it a better place for all.
