Outside the therapy room
“I live for quality moments with my husband and two daughters amidst everyone’s busy schedules.
We love exploring the little treasures Adelaide has to offer. As a self-proclaimed foodie, sampling international cuisine in new restaurants and creating South African heritage dishes at home are some of my favourite pastimes. Good coffee and dark chocolate make me deliriously happy.
For balance, I enjoy doing functional strength training and the occasional run, but I am just as comfortable curled up on the couch with my cat, Pacino.”
