Interests & Hobbies:

My favourite sport is kitesurfing, however this is very weather dependent so when the wind is not strong enough, I enjoy surfing, hiking and trail running. I grew up in a family with a sailing background but since I started kitesurfing, I do not have much time to sail anymore. I joined the Stellenbosch University Rock Climbing Club while studying which I still participate in since graduating.
In the holidays, I enjoy camping and diving. I have a passion for animals so during my free time I volunteer at the animal shelter. I am fortunate enough to have two beehives at home, from which I enjoy collecting honey. During lockdown, I discovered my passion for painting flowers and wild animals but I am more an outdoors person.

Previous Employment Details:

WEC-Consult (Pty) Ltd (Consulting Civil Engineers and Project Managers)
(January 2023 - present)

WEC- Consult is a small civil engineering company where I initially completed my month-long vacation training and was then offered a job after completing my degree.
The job is fully in-person and I have been personally mentored and exposed to many aspects of civil engineering. I have been given more responsibility than I would have been in a larger company. This has allowed me to gain valuable experience.
I am responsible for report writing (design, technical and adjudication), drawings (for all project phases), tender and bid documents, attending site meetings, bending schedules and payment certificates.
