For Beginners


I've been around Gymnastics my entire life. It is something that I am truly passionate about and firmly believe it is the best physical preparation you can give your child.

During my Rhythmic Gymnastics career I was a member of the Senior National Team from 1995 to 2000. 
  • South African Champion: 1995 - 1999
  • African Champion: 1996 and 1998

As a Rhythmic Gymnastics Coach I ran a successful High Performance Programme at the University of Pretoria from 2001 to 2007. During this time I coached 3 Senior and 2 Junior National Team Members; a Junior and Senior Group as well as a very talented group of Infants and Pre-Juniors.
In 2008 I went to Business School and then forayed into the corporate world for some time. At the end of 2014, I was expecting my second child and made the decision to spend more time with my family.
I am now in a place in my life where I would like to assist with the development of little ones and create a solid foundation for those who wish to continue on a competitive path with Rhythmic Gymnastics.
