I am an English teacher, squash coach, windsurf and sailing instructor and have traveled all over the world. I’ve run a ski chalet in France, worked up and down the Greek Islands on a yacht and lived in Germany too and for many years ran a fashion business in UK. I’m a Christian and a member of 2 active Churches, one in UK and one in S Africa.
In 2007 I visited South Africa on a volunteer project to work with vervet monkeys. I was appalled that from the money I had paid only 30% of it reached the sanctuary and therefore I wanted to start a company whereby all the money is used for the projects. I also wanted an honest company whereby volunteers receive immediate answers to their questions and are looked after every step of the way.
I hope that through Work with Wildlife I can achieve these goals in helping Vet students in particular realize their dreams at an affordable price and give them a wonderful experience to look back on.
I work together with my friend and colleague, Loraine Scheepers from Vets and Wildlife so check out that web site for our South African projects. www.vetsandwildlife.co.za
