I have done a variety of things from working as a tour leader in the Middle East to a communications consultant, and a project manager developing recruitment and change management campaigns for big multinationals.
In 2012, I came to Cape Town on a sabbatical and never left. I took a break from my career to travel in the Netherlands, explore new places and use my skills for a good cause during a work placement with Greenpop. Three months turned into six, and eventually into a job coordinating events and experiences.
I am now excited to manage Roots, and enable others to have fulfilling and inspiring volunteer work placements in Africa. Having been in your shoes, I know how important it is to find the right match between individuals and organizations, and I go out of my way to create the most rewarding experience for all involved.
