I am a married  white south african who has been divorced twice.Family and family growth is there for of much importance to myself and husband We have 5 kids ranging from 21 to 8 and this is no easy challenge!!!!!

I am an intensive care neonatal nurse ,working in a private hospital.Getting involved in my union seemed to be a turning point for my career and political sensibilities.I have recently dropped hours (thank u Luke) to pursue a bcom in human relations.

My stong sence of justice  and equality has been frustrated in the corporate world and I hope to make a difference either by being  a genuine bridge between labour and management or by joining ccma or one of the unions

I enjoy fitnes along with my family especially running orienteering,and off road cycling

Going away to the bush is my ideal holiday.Ecological issues are often points of great debate in our household as my husband is studying for a degree in environmental management

I hold to no particular religeon but see myself as a spiritual person  who holds to the basic moral ideals  of justice peace integrity  honesty and respect for all.I believe i adhere closest to red indian philosophy and  strive to be in synch with the connectedneess of the universe
