Experience

After twelve years of teaching, which included one year of home-schooling, I left my calling as an educator in 2007 to step into the world of publishing, where I worked as a resource editor for Hunter House Publishing for eighteen months. In October 2008 I was offered the opportunity to be on the team of Kwenta Media to launch a glossy parenting magazine. I worked as online editor and proof reader until I was promoted to managing editor in December 2009. In January 2010 I took a nine-month sabbatical and worked as a freelancer in editing, while stepping back into the teaching world to determine if that door really had closed, and the direction of my life had changed.

After a stint as a locum and then a term as a teacher in a small but truly remarkable school for children with special needs called Craighall College in Roosevelt Park, Johannesburg, I decided my skills were best used back Kwenta Media, making a difference to the readers and parents who read our magazines.Sine then, I have been part of a team that has compiled a newborn guide for a prominent hospital group, launched a travel and tourism magazine positioning Africa as the destination of choice, as well as a black African woman's lifestyle magazine, among other custom projects.
