Overview

I was born and raised in South Africa. I studied Medicine at the University of the Orange Free State and did my internship in Johannesburg. Straight after that, I started in a general family practice and specialised in Family Medicine. I did my postgraduate degree in Family Medicine at the University of Pretoria in South Africa.

As a solo practitioner I did general medicine, small surgical procedures as well as some aesthetic medicine, like skin acid peeling, toxin injections and fillers.

In 2008 we moved to Adelaide, Australia, and I started working in a big general practice in the South. I had to do the RACGP exam to become a Fellow of the Royal Australian College of General Practice in 2010. We also became full citizens of Australia shortly after.

My interest in holistic medicine expanded as well as my desire to do more skin health and aesthetic medicine. Through HealthCert I have completed both the Professional Certificate and the Advanced Certificate of Aesthetic Medicine and am currently doing the Professional Diploma of Aesthetic Medicine.

The skin is a fascinating organ with so many diverse functions, and with people getting older all the time, the skin is the organ that first reflects your age. Ageing, sometimes a bad diet, exposure to the sun, computers, artificial light, infections and toxins, are all factors that our skin has to contend with daily. Usually, it is only for the most extreme skin conditions that you would see a doctor specialising in dermatology or plastic surgery, but for the everyday care, skin checks, mild acne, scarring, pigmentation, your usual GP is the person you would see.

I decided to specialise in this area, to help people with skin problems, to take GP care one step further – to diversify in “Rejuvenation” as well as “Pre-rejuvenation”.

The younger the age that we start caring for our skins, and especially now with all the new technology and research available, the better the outcomes. I strongly believe we can really be a generation of people with beautiful healthy skin.
