She believes there is a need to inspire, enable and empower people to take a proactive approach when it comes to their health and not wait till faced with the prospect of a slow and painful death as a result of getting a severe ailment.
A keen sports enthusiast and qualified basketball coach who won national championships as a player she is well aware of what it takes to be a winner and overcome challenges. These attributes and her knowledge in the health sector led her to establish a Non- Profit organisation- the Womens Elite Sports Empowerment Initiative, WESIE through which she engages and promotes healthy living within her own community whilst using sports as a tool of engagement to improve health and wellbeing in third world countries.
Indeed, she knows first-hand how frustrated many people become when they fall short of their health goals and believes being healthy is a lot easier than many realise but it starts with their perception followed by a choice and commitment to that choice.
