I hold a B.A. (Languages) degree, two Project Management diplomas and a certificate in html/css and web design, as well as a TEFL diploma, amongst others. I have excellent time management skills, outstanding attention to detail and a highly professional work ethic.
I have been editing and proofreading university theses, novel and literature manuscripts, newsletter and other publications on a freelance basis since 2002. Fluent in English, Afrikaans and German, with a strong proficiency in Dutch, I offer multiple professional linguistic services.
I was employed as a Marketing and Communications Specialist in South Africa for Investec Bank, Commercial Union and Mutual & Federal. After moving to New Zealand, I became the online marketing and communications manager for Spicers Wealth Management in Auckland, followed by senior online communications manager for Tower Financial Advisory Services.
I relocated permanently to Ireland in 2012, and am based in Dublin city.
Journalism, creative writing, corporate content, copy editing, translation – whenever I work with words, the job is done only when it communicates well. No matter how weighty the subject, I believe you can always keep it simple and concise. If a reader doesn't scroll down or turn the page, an opportunity has been lost.
I've written anything from scripts for corporate information videos to web posts on topics such as business, health, lifestyle, entertainment and sports. At Huisgenoot and YOU magazine I learnt how to tell a story and translating NG KiDS every month taught me how to write for children. My most recent publications are two books of original jokes for young kids. Most recent translation were two TV advertisements for beauty brand Lamelle (done in rhyme form!)
In writing, translation and copy editing, in English or Afrikaans, my ultimate goal is to make content easy to understand and a pleasure to read.

As a Jack of all Trades, I enjoy spending my time on reading up on history, medical news, and about the developments in modern society, especially in education and social politics. I work actively in health care (retail pharmacy) and enjoy translating whatever is available. I have more than 15 years of customer service behind me and still enjoy working with people and helping them to take ownership of their own health, which is also why I like enabling them to access information in their own language (which science has proven to be the best way of understanding abstract concepts).
