My tertiary educational qualifications include: Bachelor of Arts, majoring in English and Economic History (University KwaZulu-Natal 1986-1988); Bachelor of Laws (University of KwaZulu-Natal 1989 - 1990). I was admitted to practice as an Attorney in South Africa 1993 and worked as an Associate for a firm in Durban from 1993-1995. Thereafter, I moved into the property development industry as a legal advisor/administrator for various companies (1996- 2019). In the last year, I began working freelance to follow my interest in proofreading and editing. I have completed the onboarding course with JobsForEditors and worked as an upper grade online editor for the past 6 months.
