After having received her Bachelor’s Degree from Cape Peninsula University of Technology in Cape Town, she completed her international Master’s Degree in Germany at the Polytechnic University of Münster. During her studies there she made contact with HAVER & BOECKER. After having completed her Master’s Degree she worked for the Chamber of Industry and Commerce in South Africa. The business administration specialist then changed over to HAVER Southern Africa in 2013 where she was able to use her fluent language knowledge in German, English and Afrikaans as the marketing manager – and now as managing director.
