About me

I'm a Medical Scientist (PhD) who is passionate about global health, medical research & ensuring we have a disease-free nation. Founder/CEO of the CPSLF Foundation. Besides being a scientist; I am a passionate runner, advanced hiker & gym fanatic. My love for running started when I was in primary school where I did more cross country, relay (400m) & 800m. Athletics was my nickname and grew with this passion until now. I love running because is liberating, inspirational, easy yet so challenging.

My biggest achievements

Being awarded my B2B medal after completing my 2nd Comrades 90km Marathon down run in 10h17m improving my PB by 1h14min! From 11h30m in 2019, Vic Clapham Medal to a Bronze Medal in 2022. I’m so proud of myself, to run from Pietermaritzburg to Durban after waiting 2 years for this moment due to COVID-19 Pandemic, not knowing If it will happen, and it did happen. And getting interviewed at the finish-line it was special and a cherry on top! Thank God for my mental strength and the gift of running.
