Growing up, she was very hands on in the family restaurant business, so naturally she was to end up in the hospitality industry, but with her own healthy twist.
Her inspiration for her businesses was driven from traveling the United States extensively, studying nutrition, vegan food, health and wellness.
Her scholastic career extends to the Stellenbosch University and Bond University in Australia. She has a degree in marketing/entrepreneurship and an MBA in Finance. But she didn’t stop there, her undying passion for wellness continued at Hippocrates Health Institute in Florida, where she completed the Life Transformation Program. A program designed to help one identify the benefits of a holistic and balanced lifestyle. Her journey in American consisted of raw, vegan chef training and dining at many raw food restaurants….the inspiration flowed and from this, her café was conceived!
