My life has been enriched by an extraordinarily satisfying career path that started in my really young days in the newsroom of a Zimbabwean newspaper.
Since then, my career has diversified into a chain of interesting experiences such as nursing at Groote Schuur at the time of Chris Barnard's heart transplants; running an organisation for gifted children in Port Elizabeth; filling the role of director of two Life Line centres – first in Port Elizabeth and later in Cape Town, and the real challenge of training management in a male-oriented corporate world.
Each new "career" provided knowledge and skills for the next one, finally carrying me into what has become the perfect profession.
I have always loved my work, but never more than now. Since late 1994 I have been earning my living as a consulting and teaching astrologer.
Having milked dry the possibilities of the world of "work out there", I am unlikely to move away from being happily self-employed as a professional astrologer.
Along the way I gained a BA degree in psychology and sociology, and studied astrology. I also had two children, and two marriages, and gained 7 step-children.
My husband passed away in 2005, and I in a slow process of building a life without a beloved partner.
In my day-to-day world I'm actively involved in the Helderberg community where I live.
I'm a member of Rotary, and run our local 7 O'Clock Club adult education group.
I organise the Somerset West Business Network meetings, and belong to Safrea, a freelance writers' association. I am also involved in local and international astrology associations.
Contact me with any questions and thoughts you have on astrology, or about what I have written in the Women24 columns. I would love to hear from you.
