On a Personal Note

I was born in Zambia, and have studied and worked in Zimbabwe, Botwana, Scotland, Denmark, England and China. This has provided me with first- hand experience of the intricacies of interacting and working with different cultures.

I am married to a wonderful man and have two sons. I am also a proud grandmother of four adorable grandchildren. In my personal time, I am passionate about spending time with family and friends. I love travelling, boating, walking, cooking and baking. I also enjoy spending time at the gym or reading a good book. One of the craziest and most terrifying thing I have done in my life is Bungee jumping from the Victoria Falls Bridge (between Zambian and Zimbabwe) with 111 meters of pure adrenaline rush.
